This is the cutest thing to make for a St. Patrick's Day potluck. I found this on-line, (can't remember where!), for hubby to take to an office St. Patty's potluck. (For an added "tah-dah", go to a party supply store, and buy a plastic black or green leprechaun's pot to put the gold coins in.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  • 1 (16 ounce) box Ritz crackers
  • 2 cups peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 2 (12 ounce) packages butterscotch chips


  1. Melt chips in 30 second intervals in the microwave.
  2. Spread peanut butter on one cracker, and top with another cracker.
  3. Dunk into the melted butterscotch chips to fully coat.
  4. Let dry on wax paper.

I haven't made these....yet, but plan on trying them for St. Pat's Day. A suggestion for cookiemonster, add a tablespoon or two of crisco or vegtable oil to your chips as you melt them. this will give it a much smoother consistency to make dipping easier. This has been my experience with anything else requiring melted chocolate, so I'm guessing it'll be the same with these. Hope this helps.

These were pretty cool! I just made 6 or so to have around for a snack because the recipe sounded fun to try out. I used creamy peanut butter and pushed the two bottoms of the crackers together (I'm not sure if that was right, but I figured it gave the most coin-like shape). Next time I'll melt my butterscotch chips just a tad more, as it was easier to spread than it was to dunk this time around. They still turned out very clever looking (I'll try to take a pic next time) and tasted so yummy with the butterscotch and the wafer-like crunch! I craved a second one 1 hour after my first! Thank you for the cute idea! **Update-I made these again and still have a hard time getting the butterscotch to form a fully smooth outside to the coins. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. In the meantime, they're still adorable and they taste outrageously good! :D
