These were delicious--use white chocolate and add food coloring for a festive spin.

I agree that the butterscotch chips were crumbly and wouldn't melt. I ended up adding a little water and then had to form into balls as they wouldn't stick together. wouldn't make again

This was the easiest thing I have every made. They came out so good. Gave the recipe to 2 friends who thought they were great. Kids would love to make these also.

I've made these for several family functions with few to no leftovers. However, I melt the butterscotch chips and pb on the stove at low heat.

I made these with chow mein noodles instead of the potato sticks, they came out very yummy.

I don't know what I did wrong but my chips never melted they just got crumbly and dried out looking. I will have to try again.

Made these for a party and nobody touched them. They aren't very attractive, so perhaps people were scared of them?

These are great and different from the usual snack foods. Extremely simple to make and everyone can't say enough about how good they are. They disappear immediately.
