I just returned from a trip to an Amish community where this incredible dish was served as a fundraiser. Each woman is in charge of topping your haystack with whatever ingredients you choose as you move down the line. By the time you're done, your haystack is mile high!

Easily adapted for family use. Sure to be a kid's favorite and also an excellent idea for birthday parties, football games, family gatherings, etc. =)
