"Cuban Lunch" Candies

 
Sue and I seem to be on a roll with super easy recipes the last couple of weeks.
Here is one that, while it sounds weird, is really good.
You may or may not remember the chocolate bars they used to make years ago.
Years...and years....and years...ago.
They were called Cuban Lunch and they came wrapped in a red paper covering. They were very tasty. This super easy candy is named after those bars. I don't really remember if they taste exactly like the bars or not as it has been so long since I had one. These candies are addicting though.
Definitely a "must try".
 
 
"Cuban Lunch" Candies
 
Ingredients
2 cups peanut butter chips
2 cups butterscotch chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups ripple potato chips, crushed
1 1/2 cups salted peanuts
 
Directions
Spread mini cupcake liners out on a cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a large saucepan over medium/low heat, stir together peanut butter & butterscotch & milk chocolate chips until melted and smooth.
Stir in crushed potato chips and peanuts.
Using a small cookie scoop (or spoon) carefully scoop approx 1 - 2 Tbsp into into each cupcake liner.
Let sit until set. (Can put in the fridge to speed process.)
 
These easy recipes are not helping me lose weight. 
Seriously.
I mean, you can make these delicious little tidbits in about 2 seconds. *Sigh*
FYI - these ship very well. You can also store them in an airtight container in the fridge for at least a week. (Probably more but they always disappear so I can't tell you how much longer.) Just let them come back up to room temp to serve so they are not too hard.  
Don't be weirded out by the crushed ripple chips.... I bet no one will be able to identify them in there. The just add a really nice crunch and saltiness to go with the sweet.

    1. I've never frozen them - I would be worried they might go a bit soggy when they thawed. I have kept them in an airtight container in the fridge for several days. If you do freeze them, please let us know how it works out!! :)
