Delicious! And, so simple!! (I did the microwave method.) I also substituted original-flavoured potato sticks for the chow mein noodles, as suggested by Steve. As they look like little birds' nests, I think I'll try them again for Easter and put little jelly beans ("eggs") in the centre.
Really easy and really GOOD!!!I will be making these little gems a lot!Thanks for posting this one.
Perfect! My grandfather used to make these and this recipe fit the bill for repeating what he did. I was able to "stretch" the recipe by using 1 and 1/4 cups chow mein noodles with the 3/4 c peanut butter and 11 oz bag of chips. I also skipped the marshmellows. Thank you for posting this easy treat!
