It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is PLANTATION PEANUT CRUNCH!
This is a quick and easy recipe that’s great for the kids’ after school snack, even if that school is taking place at the kitchen table. It smells wonderful and just might help the kids to make one last push on those lessons. Of course, it’s great for the “teachers”, too. <wink>
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

PLANTATION PEANUT CRUNCH
[3½ dozen pieces]
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup rice cereal
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup salted Spanish peanuts
Melt chips with peanut butter in double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Stir in cereal and peanuts. Spread over wax paper.
NOTE: I’ve had this recipe in my cookbook for years so I’m not certain where I got it exactly. But I get a feeling it was on the side of an old Plantation Peanuts can.
ANOTHER NOTE: Chance are good, you’re going to want to make a double batch. 🙂 🙂 🙂
