Chow Mein Noodle Cookies

If I had to pick a favorite cookie, this one would be one of my top picks.  I started making this when I was a Girl Scout.   Of course, all the rage now is salt on top of cookies.  Who knew that this cookie was fashionable before it's time, because it has salty nuts in it?!!  This recipe also makes adorable nests for Easter time.  This is a great, easy, no-bake recipe.    I personally like the butterscotch/chocolate combo, but you may like peanut butter/chocolate.

1 cup butterscotch chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips                                                       
1 (5-ounce) container Chow Mein Noodles                         
1 cup of  dry roasted peanuts

Melt the chips together in a microwave-safe bowl.    I do this  on 50% power at 1 minute intervals, stirring in between.  When melted,  add the Chow Mein noodles & the peanuts and stir until everything is coated.

Drop the cookies by spoonsful onto cookie sheets that have been covered with wax paper.  Chill in fridge until firm & then transfer to covered containers.  YUM!!!

  8. Hi Kitty!
    We just finished the last of our "Chinese Chocolates". Back in the 50s, one of my father's buyers (from NYC) shared this recipe with my mother and they have been a staple in our Christmas goodies ever since. As my siblings and I grew up, we shared this recipe with our gifts. Today, my grown sons do not consider it's "Christmas" until they eat the very first piece. I hope all your readers try them...

  10. Kitty, I am just thinking that if I had these on the kitchen counter, they would make a great grab N go for everyone. Just grab and move from room to room. They look so good!
