I had never made these before but my husband requested them so I gave them a try. No complaints from anyone here. We’ll see how well they work for a bake sale today and tomorrow.  😮


  • 1 11 oz bag of butterscotch chips

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup peanuts

  • 1 12 oz bag of Chinese Chow Mein Noodles

Melt butterscotch and peanut butter over a double boiler.  Stir in peanuts and noodles.  Place spoonfuls on wax paper and allow to cool to room temperature.

You could use chocolate chips in place of the butterscotch if desired.

These supposedly freeze very well in order to make ahead for holidays.

  1. I did some over the summer, but did not put the peanuts or the peanut butter in. I bet they are delicious with those in. 🙂

    They are very good and extremely easy to make. I had a bright idea that you could also use small pretzel sticks instead of chow mein noodles. 🙂
