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.
