These are really good! I just don't care for the marshmellows, so I omitted them and just added more noodles.

RECIPE IS GREAT UNTIL MARSHMALLOWS ARE ADDED AND THEN IT IS WAY TOO STICKY AND TOO HARD TO WORK WITH.

I love this recipe. I changed it slightly by using pretzel sticks instead of chow mein noodles, it gives this a slightly sweet and salty taste. Yummy!

My Grandmother used to make these when I was a kid - my favorites! She substituted cashew nuts for the mini-marshmallows. Yummy!

These were really great, i make them all the time, and i even repace the butterscotch chips with chocolate ones and use them for halloween. *if u shape em right they look like spiders.*

RECIPE IS GREAT UNTIL MARSHMALLOWS ARE ADDED AND THEN IT IS WAY TOO STICKY AND TOO HARD TO WORK WITH.

Also wonderful if you use both butterscotch and semisweet chocolate morsels together (1 package for 1 package), and substitute salted peanuts for the marshmallows!

Gave the recipe to a coworker, she made them for the potluck at work. They were the favorite. Now everyone asks her to bring them whenever there is a potluck. Not too sweet, real nice treat. ...

These were great fun to eat and to make. I made them for my childs' class and they were gone before I knew it. They're easy to make but be careful, the mixture can become dry and hard to shape. ...

I use crunchy pb instead sometimes!
