Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Toast the peanuts on
a baking sheet in the preheated oven until golden
brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove the peanuts from
the oven and set aside until needed.

Heat the heavy cream and the peanut butter in a 1

whisk to combine thoroughly. Bring the mixture to a
boil. Place 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate in a
stainless steel bowl. Pour the boiling cream and

smooth. Refrigerate the peanut butter ganache for 30

Cover the bottom of a baking sheet with film wrap.
Heat 1 inch of water in the bottom half of a double
boiler over medium heat. Place the remaining 8 ounces
of semi-sweet chocolate in the top half. Heat the
chocolate uncovered, while stirring constantly, until
it has melted, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the
melted chocolate to a stainless steel bowl, and
continue to stir until the temperature of the
chocolate is reduced to 90 degrees, about 5 minutes.
