Microwave on High for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil, stirring once. Stir again; microwave for 30 seconds more. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Spread fudge in the prepared pan.
Place caramels and water in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on Medium for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until caramels are melted, stirring once. Stir in peanuts.
