This was delicious!!!! but... I made some changes. I doubled the chocolate chips and left out the butterscotch chips. I left out the peanuts and used 1 cup raisins and 1 cup dried cranberries. I have made this with thin pretzel sticks instead of chow mien noodles. (For passover - I made this with matzo farfelle). I made two logs and once they set (30 minutes in the freezer) I cut them into biscotti-like slices. Amazing!!!! My family loves to eat these straight from the freezer!

This was AWFUL. I did everything just like stated in recipe and had to throw it in the trash. It wouldn't even get firm, was just all mushy and wouldn't come off the wax paper. I bake all the time and just about everything turns out for me. This was just a waste of time and money.

This recipe was outstanding. It was easy to pop the chips in the microwave too. When I first tried them I thought they were good, but then after each one, they seemed to get better and better...very addictive!

I had quite a bit of leftover melted milk chocolate from dipping cookies and found this great way to use it up and make another treat for my holiday gift trays. I didn't have chow mein noodles or butterscotch chips. I made individual drop cookies but I think making a log or flat tray full then cutting it into portions would be just as easy and give more uniform sizes to all the cookies. My chocolate was a little too warm though and some of the marshmallows started to melt just barely so the chocolate needs to be as cool as possible while still being melty enough to work with. Great little easy recipe, thanks for posting it.

these were good although i did make some alterations, partly from neccesity and partly from from desire. i replaced the raisin because i was out when i went to make them and i used cherries, i used cashews in place peanuts because i like them better, and i used potatoe stix in place of the chow mein noodles as i find the chow mein noodle a little too hard. these were a gr8 break room treat. i did as another suggested and made logs, put them in the freezer wrapped in foil for 45 min. then used an electric knife to make biscotti style slices. they were a hit at coffee time!! will make the next time with white chocolate!!!

AWESOME! I left out the rasins but added extra peanuts and marshmallows. It helps to break the noodles into smaller pieces before you start mixing ingredients. These are a huge hit at my house and they are the perfect mix of sweet and salty. Thanks a million :)
