Monster Haystacks (Halloween treats)
Peanut butter haystacks get a scaaaaarry makeover for Halloween! They'll be the hit of your party! Leave the eyes off for an everyday treat.
- 1 (11-ounce) package butterscotch chips (I used Nestle)
- 1 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter (I used creamy)
- Dash of salt
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 1/2 cups crispy chow mein noodles (I used LaChoy, comes in a bag)
- Edible candy eyes (usually on baking aisle or in party supplies)
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 20mins
Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper.
Get your candy eyes out and pair up the pupil sizes, if needed. (Mine were 3 - 4 different sizes).
In a mixing bowl, add the marshmallows and chow mein noodles. Set aside.
In a 3-qt. non-stick saucepan, melt together the butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and salt over medium-low/medium heat, stirring constantly until melted and smooth. (Do not overheat or the mixture will siege.)
Add the marshmallows and chow mein noodles, stirring quickly to combine. (Most of the marshmallows will usually melt). Working very quickly, drop 2 - 3 mounds (about 1 1/2") of the mixture onto the waxed paper using two forks, or spoons, then add 2 eyes to each one. Repeat process with remaining mixture.
Allow time for mixture to harden completely.
