Nowadays you may find them in a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store or other establishment that sells "vintage candies". These lovely little cups are like your traditional peanut butter cups, except they are coated with a smooth butterscotch coating instead of your ordinary chocolate coating. Little pieces of Heaven, I tell ya!
Well, I have a recipe for something that tastes almost exactly like these little treasures. My sister-in-law passed along this recipe to me, not sure where/whom she obtained it from. It is so super easy I almost cannot believe how easy these are to make. Here is the recipe:
Butterscotch Peanut Butter Cups ("Heavenly Treasures")
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
Muffin cups (mini or regular size)
Muffin tin (mini or regular size)
Place muffin cups in muffin tins. Pour butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and peanut butter into microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for one minute (or less), stir, repeat until all morsels have melted and you have a smooth consistency. Pour into mini or regular muffin cups (can make as thick or thin as you want them) and refrigerate until firm. Makes 24 regular muffin cups, about 1/3 full. Enjoy your little "Heavenly Treasures". :)
*These would be perfect for gift giving!! Super easy and super delicious!!
