Monster Cookies

These guys turned out MUCH cuter than I had planned. Love when that happens!

When it's not Halloween time, we usually call these "Chinese Cookies". They are one of the easiest and quickest treats to make, and they last just about as long. I will usually find that my husband will hide his own stash of these in another fridge so no one else can have any... and with only 3 ingredients, it's easy enough to make my own stash to hide!! It's also a great recipe to let the kids help with.

Monster Cookies

11 ounce bag Butterscotch Chips
11 ounce bag Chocolate Chips
12 ounce bag Chow Mein Noodles

  1. Melt butterscotch and chocolate chips. I prefer to melt them in a double broiler, but my husband is a pro at successfully melting chocolate in the microwave. Melt at 30 second-1 minute increments.
  2. Once melted, stir and mix well.
  3. Pour in chow mein noodles and carefully stir until all the noodles are evenly covered.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. You will need quite a few pans {we used about 4}.
  5. *Optional*: to create "monsters", top cookies with sugar eyes. If cookies have cooled, you could add a drop of melted chocolate on the back of the eye to attach to the cookies.
  6. Place in refrigerator or freezer to set chocolate and to store. You could keep the cookies out to store, but they tend to warm up really fast and then you'll have a delicious mess on your hands.
