Member 7903290: I do exactly the same, funny thing, they were my Daddy's favorite too. However, the mention of adding the shortening is helpful. I've had major problems with the butterscotch chips turning granular when I've heated them for the last few years.

I make something simular to this. I omit the peanut butter chips and add 1/2 can of salted red skin peanuts. They were my Father's favorite.
