Haystack Cookies

Welcome to my first recipe post! Luckily for y’all, if I keep doing these posts, I have 0 children so I won’t ever talk about sneaking veggies past their super sensitive palates. Also, Shane eats everything except sweets so I won’t have to talk about how picky of an eater he is.

On to the best, simplest Christmas cookies ever. No pictures, though, since my mom is making them this year & I refuse to go digging for pictures from last year.

Haystack Cookies

Stuff to gather:

  • 3/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup of butterscotch chips
  • 1-2 T creamy peanut butter
    • Or any other nut butter, or leave it out.
  • 1 1/2 cups (more or less – you do you) of chow mein noodles.
    • You can use peanuts, but that’s an inferior situation 😉

Putting it together:

  • Put everything except the noodles in a microwave safe bowl or in an improvised double boiler.
  • Melt it all together (either microwave with lots of breaks or using the boil/bowl method).
  • Mix it a bit.
  • Throw those noodles in.
  • Mix some more.
  • Line a tray/baking sheet/countertop with wax paper
  • Use your biggest spoon and scoop spoonfuls of the deliciousness until you’re out of mix.
  • Throw your tray/baking sheet/slice of wax paper into the fridge for *at least* an hour.
  • Eat too many & get a sugar headache.
  • Store the few left in an airtight container on your counter.
    • Or get a loved one to hide them from you and dole them out as needed.

Note: Be careful, those noodles are super hard to bite through.

Enjoy!
