Super Easy No Bake Butterscotch Spiders

Super Easy No Bake Butterscotch Spiders

For a super easy sweet treat that's unexpected, make these butterscotch spiders. I used to make them with my grandmother, even when I was a little kid, and we loved them! You can always melt the chips in a double boiler if you don't have a microwave.


For microwaving, I use an 8-cup Pyrex measure with a dinner plate on top. 

These freeze well to make ahead for holidays.

Cooking Time5 min


  • 1 12-ounce package butterscotch bits
  • 1 large can crunchy chop suey noodles


  1. Put butterscotch bits into a microwaveable container that can be loosely covered.
  2. Microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes.
  3. Remove and stir.
  4. If unmelted chunks remain, return to microwave for about 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
  5. Stir crunchy noodles into the melted bits until well coated.
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet that has been covered with waxed paper.
  7. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

I must admit, I tried this recipe with the idea that there was no way I was going to like it. Seriously...butterscotch bits and crunchy chop suey way. Well I'm here to say I WAS WRONG!! These little treats are GREAT!! You can whip them up in a flash and they will quickly become a tradition in your family as they have in mine.
