This haystack recipe is versatile and downright delicious. Many varieties are available to make, and each one is addicting. You may want to make a double batch...
1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
2 cups chow mein noodles
Spray a bowl with oil and place over a saucepan with simmering water. Add the butterscotch chips and stir frequently until melted.
Add the peanut butter next and mix and finally the peanuts and chow mein noodles. Mix well until everything is incorporated.
Put waxed paper either on a baking sheet or on the kitchen counter and take teaspoonfuls of the mixture and drop on the waxed paper. Let sit to cool to room temperature.
Transfer to a sealed container and used waxed paper between layers so they don't stick together; store in the refrigerator.
