I subsituted a mixture of almonds and walnuts for the peanuts. Because I don't like them, I also replaced the raisins with Baker's chocolate squares. I didn't like my version very much, despite altering the recipe to meet my exact wants. I don't think it would come out much better even if I had followed the exact recipe. i thought it was too chewy and tasteless. Based on the success of my version, I don't think I would reccomend this.
