These were a staple in our house every Christmas. I’m not sure where my grandmother originally clipped the recipe from but I have modified it a little to adjust for current packaging sizes and I omitted the nuts. I don’t recall Mombo ever making them with nuts. I also added the cherries just as she always did.

1 package (11oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 package (11oz) butterscotch chips

1 can (5oz) chow mein noodles

1 small jar maraschino cherries

Melt chocolate and butterscotch together over a double boiler. Remove from heat. Stir in chow mein noodles. Drop teaspoons of mixture onto parchment paper. Place cherry in center before the chocolate sets. Makes about 1 dozen cookies.

The original recipe from Mombo’s box.
