Five of The Best Christmas Cookies – Day 4


For the next five days, I will be sharing five of the best Christmas cookies recipes for the holiday. These recipes are family favorites.

As an added bonus, I will be sharing recipes from some of my blogger friends too. You will have lots of inspirations for your holiday baking.

DAY 4 – Chinese New Year Cookies

Here is a really quick and easy no bake cookie recipe. It is another recipe that was handed down from my mother. It is always on my top 5 list of the Best Christmas Cookies. I never miss making them for the holidays.

My three sons love these cookies. I love them because they are so simple to make in a large pot mixing with a wooden spoon.

There is something about the chocolate and butterscotch combination makes these cookies delightful.

You simply melt the semi sweet chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a double boiler. Once the chocolate is melted stir in your Chow Mein Noodles and cocktail peanuts. Stir well and drop into stacks on aluminum foil or wax paper. After they can completed cooled, you can store in cookie tins or storage bags. I will put mine in the freezer to keep everyone from eating the cookies before the holiday.

  1. These sound interesting. But I can’t get my mind off of the almond joy cookies. 🤣
    I wished I had a group of friends close by to do a cookie swap with. That would be fun!
