  • 1 Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment or waxed paper; spray paper with cooking spray.
  • 2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in sugar, corn syrup and peppers. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring often, until sugar melts and glaze begins to thicken. (Mixture will look foamy.)
  • 3 Remove from heat; stir in nuts and chow mein noodles. Immediately drop in stacks of about 2 tablespoons each onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Cool completely.

Expert Tips

Dark corn syrup has a caramel flavor and color added, which give it a darker color and stronger flavor than light corn syrup.

Store these spicy little stacks tightly covered between layers of waxed paper.
