Servings 24


  • 2 3- oz packages of chick Peeps or 1 3-oz package of chick Peeps & a bag of Cadbury mini eggs
  • 1 6- oz container of Chow Mein noodles
  • 8 oz unsalted/lightly salted dry roasted peanuts
  • 5.5 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 5.5 oz butterscotch chips


  • Lightly spray the cups of a mini muffin pan and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the bittersweet and butterscotch chips. Heat in the microwave at 50% power for 30 second intervals until completely melted. Dump in the Chow Mein noodles and peanuts, stirring until coated evenly. Drop by spoonfuls into the mini muffin cups, topping immediately with a chick Peep or Cadbury mini eggs.
  • Pop the pan in the freezer or refrigerator to set fully. Will keep at room temperature for a few days or in the freezer for longer. The Peeps appear to be unharmed by the freezing process.
