This is a recipe that I first tasted at a candy shop when I was in college. It was called Butterscotch Crunchies and I knew that it included peanut butter and butterscotch chips. I saw the recipe somewhere and when I tried it, it was just like I remembered. Now it’s a Halloween tradition. It’s not just for Halloween though. You can make this recipe any time of the year.
