I've been making these since I was a teenager. Grandma Campbell just adored these candies & my Grandma Debelak loved them too. So during the holidays I would be sure to take a plate to both of them. They especially loved the marshmallows & nuts. It is a delicious combination if you love all these goodies and the crunch factor.

It's been 3 yrs since both my Grandma's have left us for a better place. I finally decided to make a batch for a bake sale my friend Brenda was having for Relay for Life 4/20/13.

In honor of both Grandma's & the gracious time I had with them. Love You Always!

Step-by-Step

  1. Gather your ingredients
  2. Mix the chow mein noodles & peanuts in a large bowl.
  3. Melt down your butterscotch chips and 1 cup of peanut butter in a double boiler or your microwave (if that's what you use to melt chocolates). Immediately add to your noodles & peanuts. Stir with two spoons. (Wooden spoon works well in stirring). Add your marshmallows 1/4 at a time till all combined.

    (You can use leftover marshmallows in hot chocolate and chow mein noodles on one of your homemade salads or a stirfry meal.)
  4. Spoon out on to wax paper and then shape the candy a little if need be.
  5. Let them sit at least 1/2 hour till the candy is dry and then plate or store in a sealed container. Try and eat within 3 days...with the marshmallows added it shortens there freshness time. The mallows with get dry if stored too long.
