Butterscotch Haystacks

Angela Lynch


I first made this receipe when I was in the 8th grade in homeconomics! I used to make it for my mom, dad and sisters when I was growing up! But when I got married and had my own children, I have made this receipe for them over the years, and it has been a favorite in our home!!! I have tried using chocolate morsels instead of butterscotch, and my husband likes the chocolate instead!!!

1 pkg
chinese noodles, (the crispy kind in a bag)
1 pkg

In a large Microwaveable bowl, pour the package of butterscotch morsels. Microwave on high for 30 second intravels(stirring after each intravel), until the morsels are melted and creamy. DO NOT OVERHEAT, because the morsels will burn!!!
