Chocolate Chow Mein Clusters

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"Chocolate and peanuts are two of my favorite treats, and the combination in this recipe, along with butterscotch, gives this candy a special flavor. My mother made these for Christmas every year, but they're so easy to fix, you can enjoy them anytime."
