This is the same recipe my husband's family uses. Kids love these, but so do adults! They work best with the thicker noodles, so don't buy the Chun King brand. Thanks for posting Smilynn!

These are so tasty. They are a little trickier to make than I would have thought. I had a little trouble I think getting the chips to melt enough that I could stir them into the noodles. The melted chips just made a big clump and wouldn't really separate to coat the noodles. Using my hands to mix helped a little, but other than that, they taste great. Maybe next time I'll try microwaving the chips a little longer, stirring some like when melting candy-chocolate. I was just afraid to burn it. THANKS
