After an extremely busy day, it was nice to whip up an easy cookie this evening. These can be made, chilled and eaten in a matter of a few minutes. Beware-really sweet!! Only 4 ingredients are involved, a microwave or a stovetop for heat, a refrigerator for the cool down, and a mouth or two for the final phase (best part).
Ingredients: 2 cups chocolate chips, 2 cups butterscotch chips, 2 cups shoestring potatoe sticks, and 2 cups salted peanuts.
Instructions: Heat the chocolate and butterscotch chips either in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring after each minute until melted, or in a saucepan on top of the stove until melted, stirring constantly over low heat. Remove from microwave or stove top and stir in potatoe sticks and peanuts; mix well. Drop on waxed paper-lined baking sheets a tablespoonful at a time. Transfer sheet to refrigerator for 15 minutes or until set, then enjoy!
Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
