My only complaint is that I was unable to get the white baking chips to melt to a pourable consistency. I ended up having to plop some on each tray and mix it with my hands, burning them in the process. The result was tasty and everyone loved it.

20 or so years ago this recipe was in your magazine. I made then and I still make it. Safe to say, it is a keeper!!

This was good, but not enough saltiness to counteract the massive sweetness. It also seemed too oily and the only way to keep white chocolate from getting all over your fingers was to refrigerate it.

I am surprised at all of the great reviews. I served this at a football party based on them. When I first put it out, I endured the jokes about "get me a cereal bowl so I can have some cereal." This was not eaten and there were not that many other appetizers, so that was not the reason. It was very sweet. I wasted a lot of money on the ingredients as I didn't like it either and threw it all out after our guests left. It makes a lot so I am surprised that some reviewers felt that they had to double the recipe. Will not make again.

I have been making this for Christmas handouts for a number of years. I also add popped pop corn and M&Ms with nuts instead of adding peanuts. I use Almond Bark White Chocolate. I make several batches at Christmas and give to family and friends. Everyone loves it.

I make this every Christmas. I have never shared it with anyone that did not like it. The only thing I did different was that I only used one cup of nuts instead of two. Easy and yummy!!!
