What a great recipe! Easy and delicious! The only suggestion I have is to let the mixture cool slightly before dropping onto parchment paper - the mixture forms better shapes when cooler. Read More

I loved this cookie when growing up but we made 'Haystacks' with 1 cup of creamy peanut butter mixed into 2 cups of melted butterscotch chips. Then we used a combo of chow mein noodles and mini marshmallows mixed in and dropped on a cookie sheet. Chill for an hour and enjoy! Read More

It is kind of embarassing that this simple recipe is my husband's favorite of everything I make at Christmastime. He loves them and I get lots of "yum!" comments from others too. I do add about 1 tb of vegetable shortening to the butterscotch chips to help them melt more smoothly (don't use butter or margarine it could cause the chips to seize up). Read More

This is truly an EASY QUICK and very tasty recipe. A hit with adults and kids alike. I prefer to make mine with 1/2 semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips rather than just the butterscotch. Try this combination next time for a really delicious sweet/salty/crunchy cookie! Read More

These are awesome. I did have to add about 2-3TB of shortening (I used butter flavored) to the chips as I was melting them. Read More

these are yummy but anyone saying they are easy must be doing it better than me i found these incredibly difficult---they stuck to everything (i'm going to have to take a jackhammer to my stovetop) clung to my fingers as i tried to push them off the spoon and as soon as i mixed the peanuts and noodles into the melted butterscotch chips it all seized up into this hard lump! so i turned the heat up to melt them again and scorched the bottom of the lump...maybe i'm just not cut out to be a baker...did i mention that i burnt my fingers in the melted butterscotch?

This is a great cookie recipe a Christmas favorite at our house. I use equal amounts of chocolate chips & butterscotch chips. For those who have difficulty melting & mixing melt chocolate over a double boiler on medium hear and avoid getting any water near the chocolate - even one drop of moisture will "seize your chocolate" and cause problems. adding a large tablespoon of peanut butter to melting chocolate will ease the chocolate and make adding the broken noodles and peanuts easy. it took me many attempts to identify the problems with the chocolate.
