Every Christmas Amy and I get together and make all types of cookies and candies and have the best time. Haystacks are one of our favorite candies to make. They are so easy and so delicious. Hope you enjoy! Merry Christmas!


2 cups butterscotch chips (12 ounces), melted

2 tablespoons peanut butter, plain or crunchy

6 ounces Chinese or chow mein noodles

6 ounces cocktail peanuts


Melt the butterscotch chips in a double broiler over simmering water.

In a medium bowl, combine the melted butterscotch and peanut butter. Add noodles and peanuts and mix well. Drop the batter by the heaped tablespoon onto waxed paper and refrigerate until cool and set, about 20 minutes.
