Simmer gently for 5 to 7 minutes or till the mixture thickens slightly, stirring occasionally. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla; cool to room temperature. Before serving, stir in 1/2 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts. Spoon over each serving of pie. Makes about 1 cup.
I melted ingredients in microwave instead of saucepan.
And, being the lazy person that I am, I also substituted another sauce I made for the one called for. I added crunchy peanut butter to caramel topping (to taste) and used this on individual slices. Very good!! Now, if this is not rich enough or chocolate enough for you, add some Cool Whip (regular or the new chocolate) or ice cream.
