Depending on the size of our tailgate this week, I may make these sweets as well.  I love fixing these little bites around Halloween – the combination of salty and sweet (and of course chocolate always helps) is fab. I’ve been making these since I was in high school – yes, they’re THAT good….

28 caramels
3 TBSP butter
2 TBSP water
1 3oz can chow mein noodles
1 cup peanuts
1 6oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2 TBSP water

Melt caramels with butter and water in a saucepan over low heat.

Stir occasionally until smooth.

Add noodles and peanuts, and toss until well coated.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.

Then melt chocolate pieces with water in a saucepan over low heat.

Drop a dollop of melted chocolate on each caramel chew.  Chill these until firm.  Makes about 18-24 chews.
