I AM excited, however, about an AWESOME EASY SCRUMTRULESCENT treat I am about to share with you. I feel that I am supposed to post about it today, because until Saturday, I had never experienced these little treats before - and then they were served to me TWICE in ONE WEEK. It's a sign.
So, I was catering a Grad Party this past Saturday, and these treats came out as a dessert. I was kind of like, "huh?" But, after I tried one, I couldn't stop eating them! I asked the host for the recipe - and it was so simple I almost hated myself for not coming up with it personally! Then, to top it off, a friend brought the SAME treats (with a slight twist), to bible study last night. They were SO GOOD. AUGH. Love them
Now, without further ado...
Tasty Treat Thursdays
Butterscotch Chow Mein Jumbles
- 1 package of Butterscotch Morsels
- 1 can/package of Chow Mein Noodles
1) Melt butterscotch morsels over a double-boiler
2) In a bowl, combine melted morsels and chow mein noodles.
3) Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Drop chow mein mixture by large spoonfuls into small jumbles (about 2-3 TBS per jumble).
4) Refrigerate until jumbles are hardened.
1) My friend made these same Jumbles with a twist: She used half a bag of Butterscotch Morsels and half a bag of Chocolate Chip Morsels. I think you can run with that - using all Chocolate, or trying White Chocolate, Peanut Butter, etc. Whatever you can find in the baking aisle!
2) You can also melt the morsels in a microwave. To do so, place morsels in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 10 seconds. Take out. Stir. Repeat until melted. I have been told, though, the morsels turn out better if melted over a double boiler (for those who don't have a proper double boiler, you can improvise by putting water into a pot and heating until hot but NOT boiling - and placing a bowl (heat resistant/oven safe/microwave safe) over the pot. Place morsels in bowl, and stir while melting).
3) I think this would be an awesome and easy treat to make with kids!
4) I want to try to keep these ingredients on hand - because the treats come together in a snap, which is great when you have company drop in unexpectedly or you want to bring something to a gathering.
Once I get to finally make these myself, I will post pictures. Until then, enjoy! If you make them yourself - or have a special twist of your own - email me! Send pics!
