Ingredients

  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c. butterscotch chips
  • 2 1/2 c. chow mein noodles
  • 10 PEEPS chicks

Instructions

  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine semi-sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir, and microwave another 45 second. Stir, and continue microwaving at 15-30 second intervals until chocolate is completely melted.

  2. Stir in chow mein noodles, until noodles are completely coated. (You can add a little bit more noodles, if it looks like you have large amounts of melted chocolate still in the bowl.)

  3. Place a piece of wax or parchment paper on the counter or on a baking sheet. Use two large tablespoons to portion the mixture into 10 servings onto the paper. Work quickly. Top each treat with a PEEP, pressing down slightly to make sure the PEEP sticks.

  4. Allow treats to rest until the chocolate has set, at least 30 minutes.

Recipe Notes

I made 10 large treats, large and flat to give the PEEPS a good nest to sit on. These treats are rich and can definitely be made into smaller portions, if desired.
