Chocolate, peanut butter, and chow mein noodles give this cookie a salty sweet flavor. My great-grandmother made these for Christmas every year and they were and still are a family favorite!

This is one of our favorite quick treats. I almost always double the recipe. This also works with any kind of chocolate chips you have OR butterscotch chips instead of peanut butter chips. EXCELLENT recipe for beginning cooks/little hands who want to make something in the kitchen.

I never tried this exact variation, but I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using milk chocolate in place of semisweet. Turned out great!

I changed chips to butterscotch chips and omitted peanuts and added 1 cup extra chow-mein noodles due to peanut allergies. Also, I melted chips in microwave, 2 minutes on high seemed just right. I would stop and stir after 1 minute and then every 30 seconds. They almost got to stiff so be careful!
