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)

This is all you need
Mix the chocolate and peanut butter chips in a big pot
Put them on medium heat
Especially in the beginning, you have to stir hard
We obviously couldn’t wait
Margot adds the peanuts
Potato chips, now!
More hard stirring required
Almost done: just put the cookies on a tray…
…and into the freezer for a couple of minutes.
Freezers are the new ovens.
Mucho Nuchos: A heavenly feast.
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.
