As Christmas quickly approaches, the holiday foods are already on my mind. With my grandma’s recent passing, I’ve been trying to incorporate some of her recipes into my routine. Her holiday recipes are no exception. A couple of years back, grandma gifted me handwritten recipes of hers. Instead of sharing more traditional cookie recipes, I thought I would share one of my personal favorites grandma made at the holidays—Hopscotch Cookies.
While I devoured MANY hopscotch cookies growing up, this was admittedly my first time making them on my own. I don’t know why I didn’t make them sooner because they were so easy! As I was making them, I was also thinking that they would be simple to make with kids. There’s no meticulous measuring and no hot ovens involved. They are pretty difficult to mess up.
All you need for this hopscotch cookie recipe is peanut butter, butterscotch chips, mini marshmallows, and chow mein noodles. (I know chow mein noodles sound questionable in a cookie recipe, but just trust me!) Basically all you need to do is melt the butterscotch chips, mix in peanut butter, and combine it all together. Then you dived the hopscotch cookies onto a cookie sheet and pop them in the fridge to solidify. And that’s it! (They kind of look like little haystacks which makes sense why I’ve seen similar recipes by that name online.)

I hope you enjoy one of my favorite recipes of grandma’s! She used to submit some of her recipes to local contests in the the newspaper. I know this would have delighted her to know that her recipe was being shared on my blog to people from all over the world.
