semisweet chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups
chow mein noodles
You can make a nice treat for Easter with this recipe. I omit the peanuts when I do this, but that's just my preference. Make them drop style and make an indent in the centre with your thumb to form a nest. Chill, and when they've set, fill the indent with a few Jelly Beans or Cadbury mini-eggies. Kids love them!
Tastes great, and so easy to make. I found the squares hard to cut, and about 1/4 of it ended up as crumbs. Next time, I will make individual cookies, as mentioned previously. I will also use a bit less noodles, so it sticks together better.
I love the candy but found it easier to drop the candy by teaspoon rather than try to cut it later, because it crumpled too easily.
Thanks for providing this roadmap to our creativity, Sam. These were great. Since we really enjoy our chocolate and butterscotch in separate doses, I made mine with just the chocolate chips and added raisins, mini marshmallows and toasted slivered almonds. There are many many variations to this great recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This is a family tradition for the holidays in my house. One suggestion- I "drop" the combined ingredients onto wax paper then chill instead of trying to cut them.
my husband loves these things! He use to get these at a deli close to his work. They later closed and he hasnt had them in about 10 years, but always remembers them.
He said the ones he had didnt have peanuts, so I made half the recipe with peanuts, half with out.
very enjoyable snack!
I substituted white chocolate chips for chocolate and they were wonderful. I ha a hard time getting the chips to melt to a good consistency so I had to add some Gulf wax to it. This is my favorite so far of all that I have made!
This was very good! I didn't want to make a large amount of this recipe so I used 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1 cup of crushed chow mein noodles and 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts instead of peanuts. I omitted the butterscotch chips. I used a heaping coffee spoon as a measure and dropped it onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I sprinkled it with grated coconut. This made 15 pieces of candy.
