Today, I have another long-time family favorite recipe to share with you, Chinese New Year Cookies. If you thought the Mexican Wedding Cakes was an easy recipe, this one is even quicker and easier.

Before I get to the recipe, I want to share a picture of a special something I received from Luke…

November Roses aren’t they gorgeous? They smell heavenly! It’s a very nice perk of living in Southern California, and Luke having 20 roses bushes. These blooms put a big smile on my face. Luke is amazing, thanks, honey.

Now, onto our recipe for the day…

Chinese New Year Cookies

This recipe has only four ingredients: Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, Butterscotch Chips, Chinese Noodles, and Peanuts (Spanish or Cocktail).

Melt chips, pour over noodles and peanuts, mix well, then drop by spoonful onto wax paper to set. Chill and store in an airtight container.

  1. My family loves haystacks. I usually make them on Easter. I shape them like nests and place small chocolate eggs in them. I love all things chocolate. Yum, these look good! Maybe I need to make them now. 🙂

  2. These are some of those goodies that you have trouble stopping eating! They are so good! I’ve never made them, I just eat other people’s 🙂 I’m still loving every minute of the #ultimatecookieparty There are so many wonderful new recipes to try!

  3. Oh these are so yummy indeed! I love all the chocolate in them too! One of my mom’s friends make these and sends home a bag or two of these goodies! They are so good, that my mom will actually freeze a bag to have for later, lol!

    My mom has made this recipe too but added mini marshmellows to the mix! 🙂
