Taking a break tonight and. . .

thought I would share a recipe from the weekend with the granddaughter.

SIMPLE CHOCOLATE TREAT

12 oz chocolate chips

12 oz butterscotch chips

2 T. peanut butter

2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Melt chips in double boiler, stirring often.  This will seem dry and clumpy.  Add the peanut butter and stir well.  The peanut butter heated in the chips makes it real creamy and soon very workable.   Stir well and add nuts and mix well.  Drop by teaspoon full on wax or parchment paper.  Cool until chips set up again.  Really good.

Variation:

Use peanut butter chips in place of butterscotch chips.

Use pretzels broken up, peanuts, cashews, anything salty in place of the pecans or walnuts.

These variations make for quick batches and it looks like you’ve slaved over them!  🙂

  1. These look good and easy! Finally got all my ingredients together to start making my cookies, it’s a marathon, besides trying to get most of it done before I have to pick my mom up from the airport Friday. Speak to you soon
