This peanut butter haystacks dish combines peanut butter, butterscotch chips, & chow mein noodles.
These ingredients, along with whole peanuts, are all you need to make Susan Olayinka's recipe in minutes.
Olayinka loves peanut butter & butterscotch chips. "Classic flavours go nicely together.
Chow mein noodles give crispness." Haystacks are no-bake cookies that just need to be refrigerated briefly, making the preparation easy.
If you appreciate "strong peanut butter & butterscotch flavour" & a crunchier cookie, these haystacks are for you.
These haystack cookies only require chow mein noodles, butterscotch chips, peanut butter, & peanuts.
Olayinka suggests using alternative nuts or omitting them completely. "You can also use cereal instead of chow mein noodles."
You can also use chocolate chips instead of butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips to get that flavour.
Break the chow mein noodles into bite-sized pieces, adds Olayinka. "Otherwise, they'll be hard to eat," she says.
Next, combine the peanut butter & butterscotch chips. Then, heat water in a saucepan & lay the glass bowl over it to make a double-boiler.
Peanut butter & butterscotch chips should melt in 3 minutes. Olayinka says using a glass dish prevents scorching.
After melting the peanut butter & butterscotch chips, add the chow mein noodles & peanuts. Mix everything together, then spoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Adding sprinkles to your cookies is optional. Sprinkles should be added on sticky haystacks.
Olayinka says to refrigerate the baking sheet for 10 minutes to firm up the haystacks.
Once the haystacks are solid, serve them immediately. Olayinka proposes haystacks as a snack or dessert. "They're good anytime."
You may enjoy these haystacks for weeks because they preserve nicely. According to Olayinka, haystacks can be refrigerated for 2 weeks.
