Jeanne's notes for this recipe:
I have been making these for many years. They are so easy yet are some of the most requested treats during the holidays. I make these chocolate haystacks with chocolate chips and peanuts and I make vanilla haystacks with vanilla almond bark and cashews. I usually combine some of each in a nice gift box for special occasions.

Directions

1
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Heat at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
2
Add the chow mien noodles stirring gently to keep from breaking the noodles.
3
Add the peanuts and stir gently to combine.
4
Drop a tablespoon of the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper.
5
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.
6
OPTION: To make Vanilla Haystacks, replace the milk chocolate with vanilla chips or almond bark and replace the peanuts with cashews or your favorite nut.

These are great Jeanne, I have been making these for a long time too- I have even made them using French fried onion rings, the cheese and the regular. And also using potato stix snacks. I haven't tried the vegetable stix snacks from Trader Joe's yet that is my next project. They should be good , don't you think? Hugs, Pat/KC
