Note: The recipe below is one-half of a full recipe. If you want the full recipe, just double each ingredient, and follow the instructions.
You Will Need:
*6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
*6 oz. butterscotch chips
*1 oz. cooking paraffin
*3 oz. can chow mein noodles
*½ cup English walnuts, chopped
In a double boiler, melt 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips, 6 oz. butterscotch chips, and 1 oz. cooking paraffin.
Stir continually, until all chips and paraffin are melted and the mixture is smooth.
Remove from heat and add 3 oz. can of chow mein noodles and ½ cup chopped English walnuts.
Stir, until the noodles and walnuts are well-coated with the chocolate/butterscotch mixture.
Let sit to cool, stirring occasionally. When the mixture begins to lose its gloss (after about an hour), spoon the candy by teaspoonfuls onto a pan lined with waxed paper. (Dont let the candy set before spooning it out.)
When you have all the candy spooned onto waxed paper, let the candy set. You can speed up this process by placing your trays of candy in the refrigerator or freezer. These store best in the refrigerator or freezer. Just remove them from the refrigerator or freezer about a half hour before you plan to serve them.
