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.
- 1 (6 ounce) package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (1 cup) or 1 (6 ounce) package milk chocolate chips (1 cup)
- 1 (12 ounce) package butterscotch chips
- 1 (6 ounce) can salted peanuts (1 - 1 1/2 cups)
- Microwave chocolate and butterscotch chips in a 2 quart glass dish for 5-6 minutes on 60% power, or until melted.
- Watch carefully!
- (They don't actually melt, but look very shiny).
- Add peanuts and mix well.
- Drop by tablespoons on waxed paper.
- Cool in refrigerator.
- Store in covered container in refrigerator.
- I have used different chocolate chips other than Toll House, and they do not work well.
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.)
