1 1/2 bags (11oz. size) Nestle's butterscotch morsels
2 tsp. vanilla
16oz. Planter's dry roasted peanuts
Line cookie sheets with wax paper--set aside. Melt butterscotch morsels in
either a microwave or a double boiler (according to bag directions). Once
melted, quickly add vanilla to the butterscotch and stir briskly. Add whole
peanuts to the butterscotch mixture--stir carefully. Drop by heaping
teaspoonfuls on to the wax paper--refrigerate. Once they have set and are
cold, remove each cluster from wax paper and store them in an airtight
container in the refrigerator. Variation--put in a few less peanuts and add
some Kellogg's Rice Krispies in their place.
