Chow Mein Haystacks

It has been far too long without me posting a dessert recipe!

We should all be out of that sugar coma from Christmas right? It's January 16th already...time to break keep those New Year's Resolutions, right?

Well at the very least make these for your kids, neighbor or fellow blogger friend :)

This is an easy one: only 3 ingredients, you can't mess these up, I promise! Plus they are one of those great desserts that are crunchy, sweet and salty. What more could you want?

These require chow mein noodles, those crunchy things you get in salads. Don't worry they aren't actually noodles! You can normally find them  in the Asian food section at your grocery store. I bought the bigger bag so I could make a few batches or use these as a topping in Chinese Chicken Salad.

*2-3.5 cups chow mein noodles
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanuts [optional]


Measure out chow mein noodles and place in large bowl. Melt peanut butter and butterscotch in microwave until smooth. Pour melted mixture over chow mein noodles and stir until all are evenly covered, if desired add more noodles.

Using a spoon or cookie scoop, make round "haystacks" on a parchment lined cookie sheet in whatever size you prefer, for more haystacks use a smaller cookie scoop, for fewer larger haystacks use a larger cookie scoop.

Allow to set completely in the refrigerator at least one hour or until coating is hard and no longer sticky to the touch.

**Note: The first time I made these I used only 2 cups of noodles resulting in them being more covered [more peanut butter butterscotch to noodle ratio]. The second time I thought there weren't enough noodles so I upped it to 3.5 cups noodles. Start with 2 cups and keep adding to your preferred coverage.I liked both batches equally well so its more about your preference!
