More Christmas candy! I have had these many times before, but with white chocolate. Ethan loves butterscotch, so I thought I would try them this way. These were so perfect and once again, easy! There are only 4 ingredients, which all go together perfectly for this wonderful crunchy snack.
I had to double this recipe because it did not make near enough. Ethan walked in the kitchen and said he could eat all of them and that we needed more for our friends! These are best kept in the refrigerator, they can get soft after sitting out, or maybe it is just the 70 degree weather here in Texas?!
1 cup of Butterscotch Chips
1/2 cup of Peanut Butter
1/2 cup of Peanuts
2 cups of Chow Mein Noodles
First, set up a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.
Next, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butterscotch chips and peanuts for 1.5 minutes on high. Stir to combine any chips that did not melt. Microwave in 30-second intervals after this until melted.
When the chips and peanut butter are melted, fold in the peanuts and noodles. Cover all of the ingredients well.
Now, using a tablespoon measurer drop one tablespoon of the mixture onto the wax paper.
Let harden at room temperature or place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden faster.
Store in an air-tight container.
