If you’re looking for a totally easy “chocolate candy” recipe to have around the house to munch on OR give to friends…here ya go! Chocolate Butterscotch Peanut Clusters for the win!
This is truly one of the easiest recipes ever…really! It only has 3 ingredients, and it makes 4 dozen, so there are plenty to share with friends (we wouldn’t dare eat them all by ourselves, would we????)!
If you can pour and stir…you can make these! It’s THAT easy. I’ve been making them for years, and have always enjoyed how quick to make and delicious they are. The addition of butterscotch chips to the “standard” chocolate covered peanuts takes these to the next level of awesomeness! Hope you will give them a try!
