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

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
