These are definitely a favorite in our family! They are like Hawaiian Haystacks but not at the same time. They are a butterscotch marshmallow chewy cookie and strangely addicting. I don’t think they are the prettiest cookie but they sure are great! I make these all throughout the year because they are so simple to make. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
On medium low heat pour one bag of Marshmallows (regular size) and three tablespoons of butter into a large saucepan and melt until creamy. Stir constantly until melted. I have burned the marshmallow once or twice because I either had the heat up to high or didn’t stir it. So I guess I am a marshmallow snob because I have tried it with a generic marshmallow and it does not taste the same as the Kraft Jet-puffed ones. Having said that, it may be in my head but either way I will only use those on this recipe!
Butterscotch chips time! Pour those in and stir until they melt completely.
Once the butterscotch has melted and is a creamy mixture you can add the chow mein noodles.
Mix in your chow mein noodles. I usually do not use the entire bag. I like mixing these a little on the marshmallow side so they are super chewy. I leave about a cup in the bag. When you stir these the noodle break a bit but that is OK. Mix them until it is mixed evenly and the chow mein is covered with the marshmallow mixture. This can take a bit of arm strength to mix.
Fun part! drop them in spoonfuls on parchment paper (I usually coat in butter or just spray with Pam) in the desired size. Mine are usually 1 1/2” or so. This recipe makes about 60 cookies. They are not perfectly round. You can just dumped the whole thing out and cut them into squares later for a chewy bar type of thing.
1 pkg. marshmallows
1 pkg. chow Mein noodles
1 pkg. butterscotch chips
3 tbsp. butter
Melt marshmallows, butter, Butterscotch chips in a large sauce pan stirring constantly. When they are melted completely remove from heat and add chow Mein noodles. (I usually don’t add the whole bag, just too desired consistency.) Stir until noodles are completely covered and then scoop out by spoonful’s on Pam or butter sprayed tinfoil. Makes about 60 cookies.
