"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!" — Kasey

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 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!!!
Great, easy, recipe. The chocolate and PB flavor along with the crispiness of the chow mein noodles, make these a crowd pleaser. I didn't change a thing.
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?
With or without peanut butter chips, this recipe is amazing!
Really easy and yummy!
