I first made these cookies about 10 years ago for Christmas. I love the combination of the butterscotch, chocolate and peanut butter that coats the crispy noodles and peanuts. The original recipe I used called for Spanish peanuts, but I'm not such a fan of them. I chose to use plain old dry roasted, salted peanuts instead. They salt the bring to the party really accentuates the chocolate.
