Peanut Butter Chocolate Clusters

Another great Kraft recipe. A nice combination of chocolate and butterscotch chips with peanut butter, peanuts, and chow mein noodles. A great candy gift for special occasions or as a hostess gift. You can use candy papers that are available at most dollar stores. Place the candy on a pretty plate (paper, plastic, or a pretty china plate from a second hand store). Line the plate with a paper doily also available at the dollar store. Cover the plate with plastic wrap, add a bow and voila! Or use the candy papers and a pretty box from the dollar store. I think raisins would be a great addition or substitution for the peanuts if you like. I used a heavy-bottom pot over low heat to melt the ingredients instead of the microwave oven.

So easy to make and another family pleaser! I ran short of butterscotch chips so I made up the difference with peanut butter chips. These finger-licking goodies will definitely be a repeater for me! Thanks for sharing.
