Butterscotch Crunchers

Y'all know how I can't stick to a recipe. Sometimes it's successfull, sometimes FAIL. This one is Success. At least in my opinion for what that's worth. Anyway I was perusing through the Cook Book in the first of my Blog-Iversary Giveaways, And saw a recipe that sounded kind of strange, yet interesting.
The original Recipe is for a cookie (no baking so might be in the Candy family) Called PB Crunchers. Of course having Butterscotch chips and when peanut butter chips are called for is the first problem in making a recipe to spec. ALso only having walnuts and not Peanuts (as called for) is the second problem. Anyway I did the right thing and used what I had. So here is the recipe:
2 cups of Chow mein noodles (1 can)
1 bag of Butterscotch Chips
1 cup of crushed walnuts

In a medium bowl, melt the Butterscotch chips. I used the microwave on 30% power. You could use a double boiler or the oven I reckon. When the chips are melted, stir in the Chow Mein noodles and nuts. Mix well. Then fast, drop the mixture onto wax paper or parchment paper, a spoonfull at a time. Let cool. That's it. Done. Don't do no more.

I could envision doing something like these using Milk Chocolate Chips and Potato Sticks in place of Chow mein noodles and Butterscotch chips. Only because I love Chocolate covered potato chips. I would think this recipe would be good with White chocolate chips as well.

Somebody pass me the Insulin.

This post is DIY post for Trash to Treasure Tuesday at Reinvented Blog-Why- cause I'm kinda trashy and I changed the recipe.

You can also use pretzel sticks instead of or in combination with the chow mein noodles. I've also seen people add mini marshmellows (not melted!)
