  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter not natural
  • 2 cups chow mein noodles one large 5 oz. container
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  • Place wax paper on a baking sheet or on the counter and set aside.
  • Place chow mein noodles in medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl add the butterscotch chips and peanut butter. Microwave for 1 minute at 50% power and stir. Put back in microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until chips are melted. If the chips don’t completely melt (some butterscotch brands don’t completely melt) that’s ok. You won’t even notice in the end result.
  • Add salt and vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Pour butterscotch mixture over the noodles and toss until all the noodles are completely coated.
  • Using two tablespoons or a cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the wax paper and let cool.
  • Store in refrigerator.
