Peanut-Butterscotch Bites - by Summer

Oh how tasty these little bites are! It's a little dangerous that they are so easy to make. My husband really enjoyed the crunch part of this treat. Beth mentioned in her book that she has switched up the chips and cereal to make different variations of these, and I am already imagining other types to make, especially ones that include chocolate! I see them as the perfect gift come holiday season!

The recipe was easy to follow. In fact, I actually made these last night. Because I am lazy and don't have a doubler-boiler, I melted the peanut butter and the butterscotch chips in the microwave at 50%. Like Lisa, I used my little scooper to make the balls. Mine were pretty runny, so I don't know if I should have let the peanut butter-butterscotch chips mixture harden a little before scooping? It doesn't really matter that they didn't come out in perfect balls because it's all about the taste!

  3. So happy you liked these! I've made them a little smaller than usual and dipped them in chocolate to give as gifts -- dangerous :)

    Happy belated Mother's Day!!
