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.


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwavable bowl. Heat at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
Add the chow mien noodles stirring gently to keep from breaking the noodles.
Add the peanuts and stir gently to combine.
Drop a tablespoon of the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set.
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.
