  1. Line a 13 x 9-inch pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease with butter; set aside.

  2. In large saucepan combine sugar, milk, 1/2 cup butter, marshmallows and salt. Bring to a full rolling boil over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

  3. Add cherry flavored chips, vanilla extract, stirring until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly. Set aside.

  4. In 4-cup measuring glass, melt milk chocolate chips in microwave oven on HIGH for 30 seconds, stir and microwave an additional 30 seconds; stir until melted. (If necessary, microwave an additional 15 seconds, but be very careful, as chocolate burns easily.) Stir in peanut butter, finely chopped peanuts and 1 tablespoon butter, mixing well. Spread chocolate mixture evenly over the cherry mixture.

  5. Allow to sit at room temperature until completely set and firm (or after two hours, place in refrigerator to speed up the hardening process).

  6. Lift candy from pan by foil edges and place on a cutting board. Cut into 1-inch squares. Store in cool place.
