How to make this recipe:
Measure out equal parts of each ingredient. I usually do one cup of each for my family.

Keep any leftovers in a covered container.
That is all you need to do to make this quick and easy tasty treat!
When we make the recipe, we use one cup of each ingredient. While that amount works for my family of four, you should increase the amount if making this for a larger family or to take to a party. You will just need equal parts of each ingredient.
Store any of the leftovers of the mix in a covered container.
Substitution for peanuts: If you are not a fan of peanuts, almonds are a good substitute.
Substitution for chocolate chips: Not a huge chocolate fan? A reader told me in the comment area that she used butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips and that it tasted like a Payday candy bar!
This is a nice easy recipe to make for an autumn or Halloween party. It is also perfect to snack on while watching the game or playing board games with the family.
