Jeanne's Story

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.

Ingredients

12 oz
chocolate chips
1/2
bag chow mein noodles
1 c
party peanuts

Drop a tablespoon of the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper.
