A Holiday Cookie Exchange: Chinese Noodle Candy (Cookies)-Easy, No Bake


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.

Ingredients:
1 12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 12oz bag of butterscotch 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.

Yum! I remember these. I've never made them, but I remember eating them when i was a kid. I think we called them haystacks.
I am adding them to my list!
Thanks for sharing.

Yikes -- fried chow mein noodles with chocolate? Hmmm, no I think I'll stick to oatmeal!

3 Rivers is wrong...salted chocolate is all the rage! That is basically what this is. I think the crunch and the nuts would be a hit. I might use dark chips and toasted almonds. What do you think? Holly

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Thanks for all the comments. I've been "on the road" and away from the computer all day. Holly, I think that would be good, I love almonds. I also think it would work with peanuts.

In Three...I know is odd, but I promise, it is good. I don't even like those fried noodles any other way.
