Peanut Squares

We had a block party last weekend to celebrate the kids going back to school !!  I made these peanut squares.  They were a huge hit. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe.
I topped mine with a drizzle of melted chocolate.  Everything is better topped with a little chocolate.
They tasted close to the salted peanut rolls you can buy at the store, but better because you make them yourself.  They need to stay in the refrigerator or they get to soft in my opinion.
Peanut Squares:
1 (12-ounce) package peanut butter flavored chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
16 ounce dry roasted peanuts
1 10.5-ounce bag miniature marshmallows
Butter a 9X13 inch pan.  Spread half the peanuts in the bottom of the pan.  Set aside.  Melt the butter, marshmallows, chips, condensed milk and peanut butter in a large sauce pan over low heat.  Stir until smooth. Take off the heat and immediately pour over the peanuts.  Sprinkle with the remaining peanuts.  Lightly push the peanuts into the marshmallow mixture just to make sure they stick to the top without falling off.  Cool and refrigerate.
