4 dozen cookies


  • 1 (6 ounce) package chocolate chips

  • 1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips

  • 1 cup crispy chow mein noodles

  • 1 cup chopped peanuts


  1. Place chocolate and butterscotch chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until melted, about 5 minutes. Stir in noodles and peanuts.

  2. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper. Let cool and set before serving, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use chopped pecans instead of peanuts.

The melted chocolate tends to sink to the bottom of the mixture. When spooning out, stir frequently and take from the bottom.
