The ingredients for this crunchy snack can be hidden away to bring out on a day when you need something quick, but homemade, for dessert.
6-ounce package chocolate chips
6-ounce package butterscotch chips
2 cups peanuts, any kind
2 cups chow mein noodles
Boil water in the bottom of a double boiler. (The book explains what a double boiler is and how to improvise if you don’t have one.) In the top of the double boiler, melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips, and remove from heat. Add the peanuts and noodles and mix thoroughly. Spread waxed paper on a cookie sheet, waxed side up. Drop mixture by the teaspoonful on the paper. Cool on the counter or in the refrigerator. This recipe makes 16 to 20 candies.
