Did you ever put brown sugar (when no one was looking ;) ) on hot buttered toast when you were a child?
Terribly unhealthy in thought today, but it was an afterschool treat my brother and I adored.

Well, we've already talked now about the sweetness of this slice, but it also has a bonus kick too...

With the added bonus of salty peanuts!
 The shortbread-type base is made and baked first.
 Meet Nonna's little helper - Quinn, 
we bake together every Monday.
 While the base is cooking, you melt the brown sugar and butter together.
 Which is slightly caramelized on the boil.
 Then you add the chopped salted peanuts to the caramel mixture.

 Pour on top of the hot base. 
Return to the oven for 10 more minutes.
Then when it's cold cut it into squares.
