1/2 cup roasted peanuts or toasted almonds ( I used pecans)*.
*To toast nuts, heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts in thin layer on a cookie sheet, bake 8-10 min; Cool.
Cover tray with wax paper. I used a rectangular metal cake pan lined with wax paper.

Immediately place peanut butter chips and shortening in second microwave safe bowl. Heat for one minute in microwave; stir. If necessary cook an additional 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred; stir in nuts.
