Chocolate Butterscotch Peanut Clusters are so yummy and EASY to make, using only 3 ingredients! Recipe makes 4 dozen- perfect for gift giving and holidays!
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!
Are Chocolate Butterscotch Peanut Clusters Easy To Make?
YES! These chocolates are ridiculously simple to make, but they sure taste GREAT! This is truly one of the easiest recipes you can find! These chocolate butterscotch peanut clusters only have 3 ingredients.
The ingredients are chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanuts. Since this recipe makes approximately 4 dozen, there will be plenty to share with family and friends (we wouldn’t dare eat them all by ourselves, would we????)!
How Are They Made?
Chocolate chips and butterscotch chips are melted in a double boiler, and then combined with peanuts until coated. The chocolate butterscotch peanut clusters are then dropped by spoonfuls onto wax paper or aluminum foil, and allowed to firm up before eating.
If you can pour and stir…you can make these! It’s THAT easy. I’ve been making chocolate butterscotch peanut clusters for years, and have always enjoyed how quick to make and delicious they are. You can even get “fancy” and drizzle the chocolate butterscotch peanut clusters with a simple vanilla/powdered sugar icing, if desired (but not necessary). I’ve done that a couple times!
The addition of butterscotch chips to “standard” chocolate covered peanut clusters takes these to the next level of awesomeness! Hope you will give them a try! Have a great day, and come back soon for more family-friendly recipes.

- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 cups butterscotch chips
- 12 ounces salted cocktail peanuts
Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a double boiler (chips in small pot, which is sitting on top of a pot of boiling water-be careful not to get any water into chocolate or chocolate will seize up).
- When chips have melted, remove from heat and stir in peanuts until coated.
- Drop peanut clusters by rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper.
Let the chocolate butterscotch covering harden before serving. Enjoy!
Made these for over 40 years . Just recently I have added toffee bits … so good
Love these! Been making them for years. Unfortunately, I can answer if it’s possible to eat them all yourself, lol. They are yummy and SO addicting.
As easy as they are delicious!
I just noticed that step 4 says to let the chocolate peanut butter coating harden, but I think you meant chocolate butterscotch. 😊
Ha Ha… Good grief! Thanks so much for the “catch”, Karen. I’ve made these so many times, and cannot even believe I have skimmed right past that every single time. Talk about a mental block… I’ve corrected it on step #4 in the recipe and have YOU to thank for that. Have a GREAT day!
