1 1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/3 cup bittersweet chips (60% cocoa) or semi-sweet chips
2/3 cup honey roasted peanuts
Preheat the oven to 350. Grease and flour one 8×8 pan.
In a medium-sized bowl whisk together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sweetened butter and mix until a very thick dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips and peanuts, distributing them evenly.
Press the dough into the prepared pan in an even layer, taking care to touch all sides of the pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until the edges golden brown and only 1-2 crumbs comes out on a toothpick inserted in the middle of the pan.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into 24 squares.
