Now I know what you're thinking. These aren't real grasshoppers, nope just chocolate. There really aren't any exact measurements as this is a recipe my mom used to make at Christmas. It's very simple and can be whipped up really fast. It doesn't have issues with setting up like fudge, no candy thermometer needed.
Mom's Christmas Grasshoppers
1 1/2 cups semisweet morsels (about 3/4 12 oz.bag) Again, just make sure your ratio to the butterscotch is slightly more, not an exact science here.
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels
handful of peanuts *the dry roasted peanuts
