Caramel Nut Chews

I got this recipe from my co-worker Debi Fasig.  She has supplied our work area with some fabulous food over the years.  Many of which have been added to this recipe blog.   She changed up a portion of the recipe and added some mini M&M’s on a few, but she didn’t like those as much.  So, if you got a sweet tooth these certainly won’t disappoint.  Thanks Debi, I think I’ll go grab another before they’re gone.

1 (14 to 16 oz.) bag caramels
5 T. butter
2 T. water
6 oz. pkg. chow mein noodles
1-1/2 C. dry roasted peanuts
1/2 C. chocolate chips
1/2 C. milk chocolate chips

Melt together caramels and butter and add water.  Stir in chow mein noodles and peanuts. Drop onto well-buttered wax paper.  Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over the top.

NOTE:  When you store these, make sure they are not placed on paper doilies–the cookie will stick to the paper.  I usually store them on greased wax paper in a Tupperware container.
