Peanut 'Butter' Scotch Candy

As I mentioned in another post, I made these candies and gave them out as part of the kids' teacher gifts. They take a grand total of only TWO ingredients and roughly thirty minutes of your time.

Ready, set, here we go...

What you'll need:

1 bag Butterscotch chips
3/4C Peanut Butter

Double boiler or two pots
mini muffin pan
mini muffin paper cups

I do not have a double boiler so I used a large pot half filled with water and a smaller pot sitting inside with the butterscotch chips, like pictured below.

Have your stove on medium heat and begin melting the chips. It takes a while to start but once they begin melting, make sure to stir frequently to prevent them from burning. But while you wait, you can put the paper cups into the muffin pan.

Once they are at least 2/3 or more melted, add in you 3/4C peanut butter and finish melting the chips.

You with me? Of course you are. Now that it's melted, simply spoon a tablespoon(ish) amount into each little cup. Continue until mixture is gone and boom. You're done.

The hardest part is waiting for them to harden. Those of you in the cold weather can set them outside for an hour or so. And for us in the warmer climate, just stick them in the freezer for an hour. Now you can enjoy!

P.S. - For you chocolate lovers, you can melt some chocolate once the candy is hard and put a small layer on top. YUM!
