My kids loved these when they were little. They could make them themselves and give them away as Christmas goodies to relatives and classmates.
The recipe I have calls for a can of spanish peanuts, and I would not recommend making these without them.

My grandma used to make a variation of these when I was a kid. They have been a favorite ever since. She always makes them with the bag of butterscotch chips and 1 cup of peanutbutter and melts them together. then mixes in the noodles and a small bag of mini marshmallows. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!! I've tried it with choc. chips and the peanutbutter, that's good as well. I've also added some peanuts for extra crunch. It's always a hit where ever I take them!!! :)

I used to make these cookies all the time especially for Christmas, an easy recipe for those daunting cookie exchanges! I live overseas now & it's a challenge finding chips. A friend I had a long time ago made these for me and I had to prod her daily to tell me what was in them because of the wonderful taste. I was so surprised that the butterscotch chips were the secret. I call them Chinese cookies or Haystacks. Be careful if you are tempted to use milk chocolate chips because it will make the cookies too sweet (my lesson to myself!)
