I was visiting my brother for Thanksgiving and I thought Gus got it just right, the ultimate in relaxed eating.
It’s that time of year! The weather gets colder and holidays abound. I get to make one of my holiday dessert specialties, Chocolate Chinese Noodle Cookies. These cookies are super easy, I can’t even remember where I first saw the recipe. But since then, I’ve learned others have done variations on the theme. Some people call them Birds Nests. But they are super delicious and easy and quite the crowd pleaser. Enjoy!
Chocolate Chinese Noodle Cookies
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 bag of butterscotch chips
Spanish Peanuts or any other nut you like
Place both bags of chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 2 minutes, check consistency to see if they are melted. Microwave for another minute or until you can stir the chips and they melt together. Add Chinese noodles and peanuts until all are coated with the melted chips. Add more or less depending on the consistency you desire. If you want lots of cookies, add more. Drop onto wax paper and let cool. They will harden into a cookie that’s more like candy. Yum!
