I am pretty sure these are only called Chinese New Year Cookies because of the chow mein noodles, but they are fun and tasty!
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch chips
5 oz. chow mein noodles
1 small can salted peanuts
Melt chocolate and butterscotch chips in a double boiler. Add noodles and nuts a little bit at a time, coating thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls on wax paper and chill. Makes about 3-4 dozen.
