Chinese New Year Cookies



Ryan actually made these this year! They are his favorite, and a fav of my grandmother's too. This is his mom's recipe, and it is beyond easy - no baking required and only 3 ingredients!

Chinese New Year Cookies
12 oz of butterscotch chips - microwave in bowl for 1 min 30 sec on medium (important so they dont scorch)
Chips should hold shape but be soft and tacky. And more time as needed but dont burn.
Stir in 7 oz spanish (red) salted peanuts and 3.5 oz chinese noodles (sold in small round tins in the ethnic section).
Stir well to combine. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper and let harden and place in container. Voila!
