Butterscotch Nut Clusters

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I’m not gonna lie – I’m pretty picky when it comes to nuts. I love pistachios and almonds – those are my favorites! Of course I love peanuts, as well. But I’ll eat pretty much any nut when it’s covered in a delicious candy! I created this recipe to use up some mixed nuts I found on clearance… and I have to admit, I’m pleasantly surprised. I hope you love this super quick, simple, and easy recipe, too!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 cups (1 bag) butterscotch chips
  • 2 cups (1 bag) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups salted mixed nuts
  • Coarse Kosher salt (optional)

MAKE THEM:

In a medium sized bowl, microwave the butterscotch, chocolate, and peanut butter in 30 second increments until smooth and totally melted.

Let cool 5 minutes.

Fold in mixed nuts until well combined.

Place parchment paper on cookie sheets. Scoop a few tablespoons into little piles along the cookie sheet.

Sprinkle with sea salt.

Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.

Keep in fridge until ready to eat – these get melty quickly in hot or humid temps!

ENJOY this super simple, absolutely delicious treat!
