So if you want to make something really easy this week for a Christmas party or what not, here you go....
Chocolate Chow Mein Cookies...
1 bag of Butterscotch chips
1 bag of Chocolate chips
1 can (mine was 5 oz) of Chow Mein Noodles
-Melt the chips in a double boiler or the microwave and then stir in the Chow Mein Noodles.
-Scoop spoonfuls on to wax paper and let it harden
**I recommend breaking up the chow mein noodles a little before mixing them in or you will break you face trying to eat them.**
You can also do this with just butterscotch chips or with peanut butter chips or whatever. I have also seen them with peanuts added in.
Lovely Life of Leah for some help. She gave me this recipe from the Alicia Silverstone book, The Kind Diet. So I headed out to Earth Fare (sort of like Whole Foods) and bought..............
Crispy Peanut Butter Treats
Brown Rice Syrup (1 3/4 cup)
Brown Rice Cereal (aka healthier Rice Krispies) (1 box)
Carob Chips (1/2 cup)
Natural Peanut Butter (3/4 cup)
You basically just heat the syrup over the stove until in liquefies and then melt in the peanut butter. Then you pour that on the cereal and mix it together in a bowl. Add in the carob chips once it cools and then spread it in a pan. The wax paper helped on that.
So that was my Sunday afternoon.
What did you do this weekend?
