Microwave Chinese Chews

"Easy, yummy cookie. I make these for the holiday cookie exchange, but I felt so guilty for making such an easy cookie, I didn't make them one year. The next year I was asked to please make them again, people were asking for them."

    My family usually devours sweets within a day or two. These stayed around so long I had to throw some out. Easy? Yes. Tasty? Nothing special.

    I've made these for Halloween as spiders and let them dry on waxed paper-kids love them!

    Made this for Christmas get-together. My husband never guessed it was chow mein noodles. Left all of it at the gathering so he wants another batch just for him. Thank you.

    these are one of my favorites. I add the chow mein noodles a little at a time as I like them heavily coated with the melted chips!

    These just brought me back to my childhood! My 5 year old had a great time making these, and even more fun eating them! Thanks for a sweet memory of a yummy dessert!
