Goldfish Drops

A real quick sweet crunchy snack that was a perfect thank you gift for a coworker who is really into Goldfish crackers!

Ingredients:

  • 1 11 ounce bag butterscotch chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 2 cups cheddar Goldfish crackers
  • 1 cup pretzels

Combine the butterscotch chips and shortening in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally, and with increasing frequency as they start to melt, until the mixture is smooth.

While you wait, line a sheet pan with parchment or a silpat. Turn off the heat and add the Goldfish and pretzels, stirring until completely coated.

Scoop the mixture onto the lined pan in heaping tablespoons – I actually used a medium (1.5 tablespoon) cookie dough scoop, heaping spoonfuls of that, and got 15 drops.

You can do smaller if you want to share with more people, but I don’t think I’d go bigger just because it gets less convenient to eat at that point. As you’re scooping onto the pan, you may feel like there’s no chance of the drops holding together, but once they firm up they have good structural integrity!

holding together!

Move the sheet pan to the fridge for 5-10 minutes to firm up, and then enjoy!

I’ve got extra fish and pretzels, may need another bag of butterscotch next supermarket trip!
