Haystacks


Time: 5 minutes prep time, 10 minutes cooling
Makes: about 12 cookies or 6 nests (3-4 inch diameter)



INGREDIENTS


• ½ cup peanut butter
• 1 cup butterscotch chips
• 2 cups chow mein noodles
• ½ cup peanuts (optional)


1. Put wax paper on a cookie sheet or plate.
2. Melt peanut butter and butterscotch chips in the microwave for 2 minute on 100% power and then stir until all the chips are melted.  If needed, microwave again in 30 second increments at 50% power.
3. Add noodles (and peanuts), stir until well coated with a fork.
4. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, let cool for about 30 minutes at room temperature.  You can put in the fridge to cool faster, but it may be a little more sticky.


Note: Also fun to make into nest shapes for Easter time and fill with eggs (marshmallows or egg-shaped candy).
