Heeeelllllloooo HAYSTACKS!

It seems to be a tradition in our house every Fall to make Haystacks! I'm sure there are many variations of this easy "cookie." But this one is our recipe...


2 bags of butterscotch chips

2 tblsp. of vegetable oil

one package of "chinese noodles" the crunchy kind

one container of salted peanuts


add the vegetable oil to the chips in a microwave safe container.

microwave the chips and oil for 30 seconds and stir

microwave an additional 20 seconds

stir and make sure the chips are completely melted

stir in noodles and peanuts

the mixture should be thick with peanuts and noodles... it really depends on your liking

line 4 cookie sheets with foil

drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons onto the foil lined sheets

allow to set on counter until the mixture has set

EAT LIKE MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alden's Godfather loves these "cookies" and one of Quinn's Godfathers can be encouraged to mow a lawn for these ;).

They are a very simple treat to make with kids!

I hope they become a tradition in your family!

Ah yes. The holiday baking season has begun. And I won't be there to make the chex mix or the toffee bars, or biscotti. Sigh.

There will be plenty of time for weight gain when you return, my love ;).
Oh... how I love your chex mix!
