This recipe is derived from my mother’s recipe that she used to make when I was growing up. She used chopped peanuts and more butter and she only ever used 1/2 a pkt of choc chips (what’s up with that?!). I am a huge fan of anything containing peanut butter and chocolate as well as using 2 different types of choc chips. However I still use her recipe each time I make them as a base because she handwrote it on the back of a letter she sent me 13 years ago. It makes me smile to see her handwriting even though I know the recipe by heart
