"Simple and delicious ...more like candy. Peanuts work well in place of the cashews or try a combination of both!"

For a high fiber snack, use Fiber One cereal instead, it looks just like Chow Mein Noodles, and covered with chocolate you can't tell the difference.

Was so excited to try out this recipe. The butterscotch was so overpowering you couldn't taste anything else. Sadly I ended up throwing out most of them as my family wouldn't eat them.

I've been making a cookie like this for years and called it "Scotch Crunchies". My recipe has one cup of cashews instead of 1/2 cup, but I've also noticed you can adjust this recipe to your tastes.

I made these last December (2001) and brought them to work as a snack. There were a hit. A friend asked for the recipe to make them with his daugther for Christams. Tip: Once you put everything together, stir quickly because it will stiffen up really quick.--sk

This recipe is easy and fun to do with others. Good recipe for kids! The only downside is that the chocolate melts fast, so if you don't serve these cold, they get all over everyones fingers and fall apart a little. Also, cook over LOW heat, because the chocolate will taste bad if you cook it too fast and it can get stuck to the bottom of the pan. Also, like a previous reviewer said, stir the mixins in quickly, because it thickens FAST.

My kids have enjoyed these for about 18 years now! They are a wonderful candy! We call ours, Chinese New Year Candy, but it goes by many names. We use, 1- 12oz. bag semi sweet choc. chips, 1- 12oz. bag butterscoth chips,(I think there is 2 cups in bag). Only 1- 6oz.can chinese noodles and 1- 14oz.bag of spanish peanuts. You can also add 12oz. of raisins if you like. I melt my chips on top of double boiler until melted, remove from heat and then stir in all the crunchy things.(if kids are using double boiler, be careful because hot water can spurt between pans and make sure you don't get any water in choc. mix). I drop by tablespoon onto wax papper to set, but can speed that up by putting in refrigerator. These also freeze wonderful for several months! Great!

I love this recipe. I like using dark chocolate and milk chocolate, but on occasion use white chocolate, dried cranberries and pecans. Everyone is amazed at how easy this recipe is.

Five stars for easy! The grandkids loved them. Yes, they are sweet - they are supposed to be! I added more nuts - but that is just because we all like lots of nuts!
