Chocolate Haystacks

Today I made Chris some Haystacks… not so much to be nice but to prove a point lol.  For years he has called Macaroons Haystacks and it drives me absolutely nuts.  I think at first he may have actually thought they were but after a while it just became a fun game for him to drive me crazy with!!!

As much as it pained me to actually reward this behavior lol, I made him some Haystacks today to show him the difference.


I made mine out of chocolate and I added raisins instead of peanuts for a different take on them.

I hope you enjoy them as much as he was last night lol!!!


As you can see, there are minimal ingredients!


Minimal ingredients and a very easy, very fast recipe too !

To start with I measured 3/4 Cup of Peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl then added the package of chocolate chips.


I microwaved this on high for about 45 seconds to a minute, until the peanut butter is melted and then removed from microwave and stirred the mixture until all the chocolate chips were melted.


Now all I had to do was add 3 cups of dry Chow Mein noodles and 3/4 cup of raisins to the chocolate/peanut butter mixture and stir well!


Once it was well combined, I dropped it by the tablespoon onto a greased, aluminum foil lined cookie sheet and refrigerated for about 2 hours until they were set.


That’s it… the whole recipe… I told you it was easy!  A quick chocolate and peanut butter fix.
