 6 tbsp Butter, melted
 2 cups Pretzels, crushed
 2 cups Butterscotch flavored pieces
 ¼ cup Heavy whipping cream
 ½ cup Pretzels, coarsely chopped

In a medium sized saucepan, combine the butterscotch pieces and heavy cream. Stir over them together over low heat until the pieces are just melted. Carefully spoon the butterscotch mixture over the crumb mixture in the pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle the coarsely chopped pretzels and peanuts on the warm butterscotch mixture and gently press into cookies.
