Ingredients

1/2
cup butter or margarine
1/4
cup whipping cream
1
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup peanuts, coarsely chopped
1

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. In heavy 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat butter, whipping cream and brown sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until butter is melted. Pour into 2 ungreased 9-inch round cake pans. Sprinkle evenly with peanuts.
