Stephanie @ A Fine House is our hostess today for A Holiday Cookie Exchange. I am sure that if you visit her blog you will find links to amazing cookies to make for your family and friends.
In keeping with my attempts of making cooking easy for my readers, I am showing you one of our family favorites today. It is not only fast (no baking) it is easy and requires very few ingredients. My mom made these the entire time I was growing up. Our family loves the combination of sweet and slightly salty.
1 12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 5 oz can of Chinese Noodles
2 cups salted cashews
I find it very easey to use the microwave to melt my chips. If you prefer a double boiler...that works too. My way is easier. You need to check the chips every 30 seconds or so, you don't want to burn them.
Put the chips in a large bowl. Microwave until just melted and stir to blend well. Stir in the the noodles and the cashews gently until completely covered. Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Chill in the frig or in a cool place until they set up. Easy 5 minute cookies/candy. You won't be disappointed! Enjoy.
