Salty Peanut Squares

I have not tasted these yet, so I'm not sure how well they turned out. The recipe was super easy, so I'm hoping they'll be a hit! 
1 package (10 ounces) corn chips slightly crushed, divided
1 cup unsalted peanuts, divided
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, melted
Place half of the corn chips and peanuts in a greased 13 x 9 x 2 in. pan; set aside. In a saucepan, bring the corn syrup and sugar to a boil. Stir in peanut butter until blended. Drizzle half over corn chip mixture in pan. 
Add remaining corn chips and peanuts to remaining syrup; stir until combined. Spoon over mixture in pan; press down lightly. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Cool before cutting. Yield: 2 dozen.
