Recipe for “Worms ‘n’ Dirt”
- 2 Bags of semi-sweet Chocolate chips (can substitute butterscotch chips for one or both of the bags)
- 2 cans of Chow Mein noodles
- Melt the chocolate/butterscotch chips. (You can use a crockpot, stirring often. You can also use a microwave, just make sure to use a microwave-safe container and for 10 seconds at a time.)
- Add the noodles and stir until thoroughly mixed.
- Drop the mixture in spoonfuls onto wax paper or aluminum foil. Let sit for 30-40 minutes until chocolate has hardened (or put in the fridge/freezer for 10 minutes if you get impatient and want to eat them sooner).
- Makes roughly 2 dozen cookies.
