"I like making these crisp and creamy treats because they require only four ingredients," says Virginia Johnson of Mims, Florida. "It's hard to stop eating them, they're irresistible."


  • 1 can (12 ounces) salted peanuts
  • 1 can (7 ounces) potato sticks
  • 3 cups butterscotch chips
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter


  1. Combine peanuts and potato sticks in a bowl; set aside. In a microwave, heat butterscotch chips and peanut butter at 70% power for 1-2 minutes or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Add to peanut mixture; stir to coat evenly.
  2. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until set, about 5 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
