These are really good! I just don't care for the marshmellows, so I omitted them and just added more noodles.

I love this recipe. I changed it slightly by using pretzel sticks instead of chow mein noodles, it gives this a slightly sweet and salty taste. Yummy!

My Grandmother used to make these when I was a kid - my favorites! She substituted cashew nuts for the mini-marshmallows. Yummy!

These were really great, i make them all the time, and i even repace the butterscotch chips with chocolate ones and use them for halloween. *if u shape em right they look like spiders.*

Also wonderful if you use both butterscotch and semisweet chocolate morsels together (1 package for 1 package), and substitute salted peanuts for the marshmallows!

Gave the recipe to a coworker, she made them for the potluck at work. They were the favorite. Now everyone asks her to bring them whenever there is a potluck. Not too sweet, real nice treat. Just enough after a meal. With a cup of tea. Yummmmmmmm

These were great fun to eat and to make. I made them for my childs' class and they were gone before I knew it. They're easy to make but be careful, the mixture can become dry and hard to shape. Mix well & form immediately.
