These creamy chunks of chocolate perfection take about ten minutes to make, and only slightly longer to devour. Guaranteed to put a smile on even the grumpiest piano teacher's face.

4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter, (chunky or smooth)
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup unsalted peanuts, coarsely chopped
Prepare a 9 x 13 in. (23 x 33 cm) rectangular pan by lining the bottom with a piece of waxed paper, cut exactly to fit. Set aside. Measure the chocolate chips into a medium saucepan. If your child is helping you, have her stir the chips over the lowest possible heat until they are almost completely melted.
Remove from the stove, and continue stirring until smooth. Stir in the peanut butter until evenly blended. In a large bowl, mix together the miniature marshmallows and peanuts. Pour in the chocolate mixture, and stir just until combined.
Spread in the prepared pan and refrigerate until firm. With a (very) sharp knife, cut into 1 in. (2 cm) squares (make sure you peel off the waxed paper).
