We broke out some of the old family holiday favorite recipes and got busy baking.
 That's today's photo...the recipe for Noodle Candy.
My mom made them.  Her mom made them.  I make them.
You get the idea!
These are not gluten-free.
I have yet to find a substitute for the chow mien noodles.  
I might try corn chex cereal one day.
In any event, these are being made for gifts.
It's an easy recipe that makes lots of yumminess.

The hardest part is all the stirring...
 and stirring....
and stirring...
 and stirring...
 and stirring...
and stirring!
And, then it moves pretty quickly, so having the
waxed papered surfaces ready is important.

Here's the recipe if you'd like to try them:
I always double this and it makes approx. 4 dozen depending on how large/small you make them.
12 oz chocolate morsels
12 oz butterscotch morsels
1 c chopped nuts
3 oz chow mien noodles

Melt all the morsels together in a double boiler.  Add nuts and noodles.  Mix well.  Drop by teaspoonfuls on a waxed paper covered cookie sheet.  Cool briefly in freezer (or on deck!).  Enjoy!

  1. Emma dropped the gift of these to me this morning. Thanks so much. I ate one at snack time, and I've saved the rest to share out with hubby and aunt when we get to Maine tomorrow. They are absolutely delicious. I haven't had them since I was Emma's age - a long, long time ago.

    Such a lot of stirring - but well worth it. Thanks again.
