I was very surprised to find that these little bites of cookies were only 2 Weight Watcher points each!  This is a cool little no-bake cookie to include on your cookie tray for the holidays!


These cookies can be easily made right in your microwave or double boiler. You start with butterscotch chips, melt them in your microwave, then stir in your peanut butter, chow mien noodles, and marshmallows.  You could decorate these with colorful candies to give them a more festive look if you wish.

I was thinking you could change this recipe up a little by changing the chips to either peanut butter, chocolate, or white chocolate! You could also substitute colorful M&M’s for the marshmallows, or if you don’t want to add candy, you could add peanuts!
