Okay, I don’t know anyone who didn’t make these when they were little. However if you didn’t get to when you were young, now is the PERFECT time cause they are SO easy! It’s a fun one for kids to help with too because there’s no baking. So here’s the recipe!
10 oz of Chow Mein Noodles
6 oz milk chocolate chips (about half a bag)
6 oz butterscotch chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
Any egg shaped candy, about 54. I normally use Cadbury Mini Eggs because they are amazingly delicious. But I may or may not have eaten all of those so I had to use little bubble gum eggs. 🙂
First line your cupcake pan with paper liners. This is a great job for a little one who wants to help out. 🙂
Take your milk chocolate and butterscotch chips, put them in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy.
It took me about 90 secs total to get them smooth. Next add your peanut butter and stir that in until smooth. No need to reheat. The mixture will be thick but pourable.
Now take your chow mein noodles in a larger bowl…
And pour the chocolate mixture over the noodles and stir carefully until all are covered. I found it was best to use my rubber spatula.
Now spoon the covered noodles into the cupcake pans.
After they are all filled, take your choice of egg shaped candies and add three to each one. Another perfect job for little, helping hands!
Chill for about 30 mins and serve! We are planning on using these as an after school snack today! 🙂
