Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 dozen
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1 cup peanuts (optional)
  1. Prepare a pan using parchment paper or lightly grease a pan (cookie sheets work great)
  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or on top of the stove in a double boiler
  3. Add the peanut butter and mix together
  4. Pour the melted chocolate and peanut butter mixture over the chow mein noodles and gently mix together
  5. Drop by tablespoons onto the prepared pan.
  6. Wait until completely cooled before eating. You can speed up the process by putting them into the freezer for about 8-12 minutes. The chocolate will get shiny—but tastes the same.
  7. Note: some recipes call for nuts—if your grandchildren do not like nuts, don’t put them in
