Mucho Nucho

Yesterday I spent a wonderful afternoon with my dear friend Margot. She just came back to Toronto from visiting her family in Nova Scotia. Margot had lots of amazing stories to tell and a delicious recipe to share. She knows I love all things east coast.

This cookie recipe is apparently a tradition of her family. They are called Mucho Nuchos. They don’t require baking and are a tasty treat.
So, if you want to surprise your guests, here is the run down:

3 bags of peanut butter chips
3 bags of chocolate chips
3 cups of peanuts (give or take)
1 bag of salted potato chips (Ruffles are suggested)

The secret ingredients
This is all you need

Especially in the beginning, you have to stir hard

We obviously couldn’t wait

Melted dreams

Margot adds the peanuts

potato chips, now
Potato chips, now!

stir harder
More hard stirring required

put them on a tray
Almost done: just put the cookies on a tray…

and in the freezer
…and into the freezer for a couple of minutes.
Freezers are the new ovens.


we have so deserved this
Mucho Nuchos: A heavenly feast.

get coke plus with it
Just a little suggestion: wash them down with some Diet Coke plus
(that’s Diet Coke with added vitamins and minerals)
Margot and I love to have a balanced diet.
