I should stop baking holiday treats. I should stop no-baking holiday treats. I really should. I'm ready for my kitchen to be back to normal (no candies hardening on the counter, no flour sitting out because I am using it all the time anyway, no constant dish washing). And, I'm ready to cook again. But, I always get a ting of fear right before I begin gifting the goods.. What if I don't have enough cookies? Maybe I need more candy? Is there a good enough mix of chocolate and non-chocolate? And so on and so forth.
To calm my fear: continue making holiday treats.
(recipe adapted from my mom)
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag chow mein noodles
Melt chips together. Add chow mein noodles. Mix until combined. Drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper and allow to harden. Store in an air tight container and serve throughout the holiday season.
And with that I am off to finish my turtle cookies and then make a double batch of m&m cookies. Then I'm done with the sweet holiday treats. I promise.
