{Katie’s Kitchen} Easter Haystacks

Brought to you by Stroup Flooring America 

Peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate! What more could you want in an Easter treat?

Haystacks are delicious and easy to make, but this was my first time trying them out!

All you need are crunchy chow mein noodles, butterscotch chips and peanut butter for this recipe! I also used little Easter egg chocolates for on top, so they’d look like bird nests!

For this recipe I used a muffin tin, so they were all the same size. This is a no bake recipe, which makes it even easier.

Start by adding a cup of peanut butter and a bag of butterscotch chips, then melt in the microwave– 2-3 times at 30 second intervals. Stir melted mixture.

In another bowl, pour your peanut butter and butterscotch over 4 cups of chow mein noodles. Gentle mix so your noodles are evenly covered.

Then, spoon into a muffin pan and let sit until it hardens. You can put it in the refrigerator, too. Add three colorful chocolate eggs on top and ENJOY!


-1 cup peanut butter (creamy)
