  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 11 ounces butterscotch chips
  • 4 cups crispy chow mein noodles


  • Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl combine the semisweet chocolate chips and the butterscotch chips.
  • Cook in the microwave, on high, for 45 seconds. Take the bowl out of the microwave and vigorously stir the chips. If needed, microwave at additional 15-second intervals, stirring (yes, vigorously!) between each interval, until the chips are smooth and melted.
  • Add chow mein noodles and gently fold until they're evenly coated.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Place in the fridge, 10-15 minutes, or until cookies are set.
