Not only does this recipe have just 3 ingredients, but it's done in 15 minutes flat, from start to finish, and it's kid approved!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (6-ounce) package butterscotch chips (see Note)
  • 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup shoestring potato sticks, broke into pieces

What to Do

  1. Melt chips in a saucepan over low heat.
  2. Stir in peanuts and potato sticks. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto wax paper, and cool completely.


Peanut butter chips offer up a good alternative to the butterscotch chips if you'd like a substitute.

German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad isn't creamy like some of the traditional American potato salads you may be used to, but that doesn't mean it isn't as delicious! Our German Potato Salad has a sweet vinegary base and includes tasty ingredients like bacon, onion and fresh parsley.
