Butterscotch Party Mix is a great new twist on party mixes, combining sweet butterscotch and chewy caramel with nuts, pretzels and cereal.


  • 2 cups oven-toasted cereal squares
  • 2 cups small pretzel twists
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup caramels, unwrapped, coarsely chopped
  • 1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels


COAT 13 x 9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

COMBINE cereal, pretzels, peanuts and caramels in large bowl. Place morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave uncovered on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Pour over cereal mixture; stir to coat evenly.

SPREAD mixture into prepared baking pan; let stand for 20 to 30 minutes or until firm. Break into small pieces.

We made this same recipe with white chocolate and it was wonderful! Look on the baking aisle for the caramel -- they now make bags of little caramels that are just the right size for the recipe. Cuts down on prep time.
