Used two small bags Farkay noodles ( just past their prime--wanted to use them up) = 7 cups...added 2 cups plus 1 of salted peanuts (wanted them out of the freezer)...used 2.5 cups chocolate chips and 2.5 cups butterscotch chips...such a treat in August! We usually wait until Christmas for these little nuggets! So Great! Thank you!
