  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil OR shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted, lightly salted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows


  • Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • Melt chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and vegetable oil together in a large microwave-safe container. I used a Pyrex glass measuring cup.
  • Heat on high for 30 seconds, stir, repeat, until chips are melted and smooth.
  • Quickly stir in the peanuts and marshmallows.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the waxed paper. You can make them as large or as small as you like.
  • Let set up in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before packing. Store leftovers (ha!) in an airtight container.
