    mollypie's Note:

    This is so easy and so impressive. The taste is fantastic. The texture is smooth and creamy. The flavor depends on the quality of chips you buy but the kids enjoy the store brand (cheap ones) the best They make great teacher gifts, if you package them up nicely.

      These are a delicious salty-sweet treat :) I got 22 from a half-batch. I used the larger amount of nuts and actually had to add a few more as I had melted chocolate mix left at the end after scooping them out that had no nuts in it. Used Ghirardelli chocolate and Nestle butterscotch chips. Thanks for sharing!

      I made these for a party and everyone went crazy over them! They are super easy to make and look like you spent a long time making them. They would be great as a hostess gift or in a holiday goodie basket or tray. Thanks for posting a keeper!

      Easy and SO good. I didn't have a double boiler and the microwave was taking forever, so I just melted the chips in a pan on the stove (low heat). I also almost doubled the amount of nuts because, well, I like them. Very good - goes in the keeper file.
