    Miss Annie's Note:

    This candy is a must for gifts, parties, or special occasions, especially if your time is limited. NOTE: The butterscotch chips will NOT melt. When they are soft, they look shiney. Do not overcook, as the chocolate will burn. You may use more peanuts if desired. I usually throw in more to make sure the last pieces have some nuts in them.

      I made these and they were soooo easy! I put them on my Christmas goodie plates, and everyone loved them. I got several calls for the recipe. I actually did use different chocolate (ghiradelli) and they turned out fine! THanks!

      Miss Annie, these are addictive! I had to hide them from everyone to make sure they make it to my Christmas trays. They are soooo easy and delicious. I am so happy that I noticed someone tag them on 'zaar tag and that I popped them in my cookbook :) I got 35 out of the recipe and it took 3 minutes to soften the chips in my microwave on 60% power. I used Toll House for both kinds of chips. I was very surprised that these did not taste overly butterscotchy...you can really taste the chocolate, which is fine with me :) Thanks for sharing...these are going to be a holiday standard from now on!

      Unbelievable! Everyone was SO impressed, I couldn't bring myself to tell them how easy these were to make. Perfect recipe, in my opinion. (My husband, however, thought they were too rich so I did a batch using peanut butter chips instead of the butterscotch. And, they were equally as good.)
