MeeMaw's Texas Tumbleweed Candy

The girls saw Paula Deen make these on her cooking show over Easter weekend, so we got the ingredients and made these, too! Very good and tasty.

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

1 (12-ounce) package white almond bark
1 cup (6-ounces) butterscotch or peanut butter chips
1 (1-pound) package roasted salted peanuts
3 cups (about 4 1/2 ounces) potato sticks, plus more if desired

In a microwave oven or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt the bark and the chips together. Stir with a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon to combine.

Mix in the nuts and potato sticks, adding additional potato sticks if desired. Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to cool. Store the candy in an airtight container.
