  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Combine 1/2 cup chopped peanuts, graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Blend well and press evenly into a 9 inch pie plate. Set aside.

  3. Add chocolate chips to sugar water and stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
  4. Beat eggs together and add 1/4 cup of hot chocolate mixture to eggs. Stir quickly so eggs do not cook and add back to original chocolate mixture. Blend well.

  6. Add remaining chocolate mixture to top of pie. Garnish with remaining peanuts.
