Butterscotch Haystacks

2 11-oz. bags butterscotch morsels

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

1 5-oz. can chow mein noodles

1 1/4 cups salted dry-roasted peanuts*

Wax paper or parchment paper


Gently melt butterscotch morsels, peanut butter and vegetable oil over medium-low heat in a saucepan (or in a double-boiler), stirring constantly, until morsels have melted and mixture is smooth.


Add noodles and peanuts to a large bowl. Pour butterscotch mixture over noodles and peanuts and gently stir until everything is evenly coated.


Use two tablespoons to drop little “haystacks” of the mixture onto wax paper or parchment paper. Leave haystacks to firm up for approximately 4 hours. Once set, store at room temperature in an airtight container.


Makes approximately 45 haystacks.


*you can omit the peanuts and double the chow mein noodles for traditional haystacks
