Here is a guest post from my good friend Shari. Shari is a happily married mom to three young boys who lives in Ontario. She knits, sells on etsy, and blogs over at The Knit Wit. Have you checked out her site yet? One of my favourite features is the low-entry giveaway round-up that she posts every couple of days. She also posts tons of giveaways and reviews, as well as tasty recipes like the one below…
I have a really old Kids cookbook that I got about 15 years ago at a garage sale for 10 cents that I love to pieces. It’s from Better Homes and Gardens, and it is well loved. The Front cover is long gone, so I can’t even remember what it’s called, but you can find the original recipe here. Whenever I make any of the recipes from this book, everyone loves them!
I have made some changes to this recipe, so even though I call them Rudolph’s Antlers, they don’t really look like it anymore. I make them to my own specifications now, from comments and suggestions we have made over the years. Although if you want to make the originals they are quite cute, just these work better for our family.
1 cup semisweet Chocolate pieces
1/2 cup butterscotch pieces
2 cups broken up chow mein noodles (I like smaller pieces so they clump up nicer)
In a medium saucepan melt chocolate and butterscoth pieces over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
Stir in Chow mein noodles.
Drop my rounded teaspoons onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Leaving about an inch in between, so as they settle they don’t stick together.
Chill in the refrigerator 1-2 hours or till firm. Makes anywhere from 12-24 cookies depending on how big or small you make them.

I’ll be leaving this linky open until after New Years, and I’ve set up a tab along the top to keep it visible for the whole month. If you like you can grab my “Holiday Recipe Hop” button and link back here.
