Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and coat with frosting. Cut into squares.

Cook's Notes:

Use any cake mix and frosting you prefer.

Almonds, cashews, or pecans can be substituted for the peanuts, if desired.

White chocolate chips can be substituted for the butterscotch chips, if desired.
