1 2/3 cup butterscotch chips 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1 can (8.5 ounce size) chow mein noodles 3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Line trays with wax paper.
Microwave morsels in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on medium-high (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
Stir in peanut butter until well blended. Add noodles and marshmallows; toss until all ingredients are coated.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared trays. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
DOUBLE BOILER METHOD: Place morsels in top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Do not cover. When most of the morsels are shiny, stir just until melted. (Prevent water from coming in contact with morsels.) Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter. Transfer to large bowl. Add noodles and marshmallows; proceed as above.
Great recipe! Easy, fast, and it brought back childhood memories.

What a walk down memory lane. I made these "cookies" with my Godmother "Satch" every Christmas until she died 7 years ago. These taste just the same bringing back waves of bittersweet memories!

I enjoyed this recipe and my kids could help too! I did a little less butterscotch and added half a bag of chocolate chunks then melted them. I also didn't use marshmallows (personal taste). Thanks for helping me walk down memory lane. I think my mom just melted butterscotch and mixed in the noodles. Sooo yummy!
