"Chocolate, peanut butter, and chow mein noodles give this cookie a salty sweet flavor. My great-grandmother made these for Christmas every year and they were and still are a family favorite!"

semisweet chocolate chips
peanut butter chips
chow mein noodles
This is one of our favorite quick treats. I almost always double the recipe. This also works with any kind of chocolate chips you have OR butterscotch chips instead of peanut butter chips. EXCELLENT recipe for beginning cooks/little hands who want to make something in the kitchen.
I never tried this exact variation, but I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using milk chocolate in place of semisweet. Turned out great!
These were a staple on my mom's Christmas cookie platters growing up! Now I usually make them w/ my son and nephews and we decorate them w/ holiday colored sprinkles...they get a huge kick out of it. We even sometimes will make them for Halloween, decorate them and call them spiders. Super simple, but delicious treat, and one that the kids love to help make (and eat)! :)
I changed chips to butterscotch chips and omitted peanuts and added 1 cup extra chow-mein noodles due to peanut allergies. Also, I melted chips in microwave, 2 minutes on high seemed just right. I would stop and stir after 1 minute and then every 30 seconds. They almost got to stiff so be careful!
I love this recipe, I made this awhile ago because it was too hot to put the oven on to make anything, therefore this was great....I put them in the fridge to harden so that I don't have to eat too many!!!
These are really good! I'm a big fan of peanut clusters and the addition of the crunchy chow mein noodles is great! I would probably leave out the peanut butter next time (chocolate doesnt get hard). Maybe add some cashews?
I doubled this right off the bat. My family is not crazy about peanuts so instead of 2 cups I used a cup and a half and an extra half cup of noodles. Next time I may omit the peanuts or substitute something else. I did not use the microwave shortcut to melt the chips and it set up just fine. Even after coming back to room temperature after the refrigeration time, they were perfect-no problems with the chocolate getting melty. This will be added to my Christmas baking repertoire. It's nice to have a great recipe for something unique!
Easy to make and delicious to eat! I followed the recipe exactly and made a batch and a half the first time. Very very simple! I am not a "baker"!
