I did as another reader suggested and subbed butterscotch chips for the sugar and corn syrup. I used a large bag of chow mein noodles which was 8 cups. I used an entire bag of butterscotch chips and melted them with the peanut butter! These are so cute and absolutely taste wonderful! One of these does go a long way! Thank you for an new Easter tradition winkki!
