Step 1:

Line a mold with parchment paper on all sides, then grease it with some oil.

Step 2:

In a pan, add 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of honey, and 1/4 cup of water. Place over medium heat and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes while continuously stirring. To test if it’s done, put a bit of the mixture in water. If it turns like gum, it’s ready.

Step 3:

Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the mixture and let it melt. Next, add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix well, then remove from heat.

Step 4:

Add a pinch of salt then mix well. Next, add 2 and 1/2 cups of peanuts. Mix well until they are fully coated with the mixture. It will become very sticky.

Step 5:

Wear a glove, then grease it with oil. Press the peanuts on the bottom of the mold. Cover with plastic wrap and let it cool at room temperature for about 2 hours.

Step 6:

Break the dark chocolate into pieces and place into a bowl. Melt in a bain-marie or in the microwave. Once melted, pour the chocolate on top of the peanuts. Spread evenly using a spatula. Place in the refrigerator and let it chill for 30 minutes.
