  1. Combine the half-and-half, sugar, and gelatin in a medium saucepan. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium heat until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from the heat. Add peanut butter and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Pour into six 6-ounce custard cups. Cover and chill about 3 hours or until set (mixture will separate into layers while chilling).
  2. To serve, loosen edges and unmold onto individual dessert plates. Sprinkle with peanuts.
