Tasty enough for any occasion, these butterscotch haystacks are mounded with a mixture of peanut butter, butterscotch morsels, marshmallows and chow mein noodles. To enjoy in a snap, make them the microwave way.
- 1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 can (8.5 oz.) or 2 cans (5 oz. each) chow mein noodles
- 3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
LINE trays with wax paper.
MICROWAVE morsels in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in peanut butter until well blended. Add chow mein noodles and marshmallows; toss until all ingredients are coated. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared trays. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
DOUBLE BOILER METHOD:
PLACE morsels in top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. Do not cover. When most of the morsels are shiny, stir just until melted. (Prevent water from coming in contact with morsels.) Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter. Transfer to large bowl. Add chow mein noodles and marshmallows; proceed as above.
Review This Recipe
I made the Butterscotch Haystacks for our last camping trip of the summer and everyone loved them. Very easy to make and my children loved to help. Everyone was surprised when I told them the ingredients. My entire family loved this treat. This recipe will be made for every holiday and special occasion in my house. Thanks Very Best Baking for this memory.
