I think I learned to make these when I was about 6 years old. They are so easy they have become a Christmas tradition in my house.
While they are way more expensive than store bought crap candy, they are also way more delicious. The New Depression is about entertaining at home and sharing your life and table with friends and family. What is more depressing than being with family?
That didn't come out right, but you know what I mean.
Gather round the table and get the pans out, this candy for the new depression will rock your socks off.
1 bag DARK chocolate chips
1 bag butterscotch chips
2 ounces of unsweetened baking chocolate
Melt over low heat stirring a lot
1/2 jar of Smuckers salted peanut butter
1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
3 cups of salted peanuts (shelled)
Stir until the marshmallow melts enough to be streaks and dump in a greased 9x13 pan. Spread til mostly even and chill. Cut into small squares and serve. Both kids and adults love them. I love them, my waist does not love them, but every once in a while...why not?
