Does anyone remember making haystacks with canned chow mein noodles! What was that, like 1960 when those were popular? Around the same time as Chex mix and Rice Krispie treats?
I saw a recipe for haystacks on Pinterest (I know, I said I was banning all Pinterest recipes, but I gave in; after all it’s the holidays). All I had was the noodles and peanut butter but felt that was a good start. I got butterscotch chips and miniature marshmallows on one of those many trips to Target. Even got a discount on the marshmallows with my Cartwheel app.
These are super easy to make with the invention of the microwave which wasn’t around in 1960.
Microwave 1/2 c butterscotch or chocolate chips with 1/4 c smooth peanut butter for 1 minute. Add 1/2 c miniature marshmallows and microwave another 25 seconds. Stir in 1 c chow mein noodles. Drop onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Stick in the freezer to set for about 5 min. Makes 12.
