Way back when I was in high school, this recipe was on the label of LaChoy chow mein noodles. Everyone always loved it.

We made these when I was in primary school for Christmas treats for our school parties but we used potato sticks (stix) and without chocolate they were always my favorite treat.

These were pretty good, but a little hard to eat.

Just made these today. I changed up the recipe though and they still came out DELICIOUS! I used half a bag of chocolate chips and half a bag of peanut butter chips along with a full bag of butterscotch chips. I used chocolate peanut butter cheerios instead of chow mein noodles. ABSOLUTELY YUMMY!!!! VIOLA!!! Enjoy.

We used to make these using corn flakes instead of noodles - so easy for children to help make! Everyone loves these!

I have made this recipe for years and also added salted cashews and then started adding dried cranberries or cherries, both are also very good in them! Easy to make and I haven't met a child yet that doesn't like them!

This is a favorite with family and friends. They are known as Tarantulas in my house. I have been making since I was in high school and when I took a batch to a friend, he exclaimed "What are these? Tarantulas?". The name stuck, and to this day my kids ask for Tarantulas, especially for winter holidays.

I’ve been making this exact recipe for years except I add salted peanuts or cashews.

This recipe is a favorite with our family, although mom always added chopped cashews. This is a fast, easy recipe that will be a hit. Make the little pieces small as they are more like candy than a cookie!
