We love these snacks. Sometimes, I vary this up and use Reese's peanut butter chips or either dark or semi sweet chips in place of the butterscotch chips. It's all a matter of what you like or have on hand. The kids LOVE to make these. NOTE: I rarely keep wax paper on hand, I just drop them on tin foil. Read More

Even after I added more peanut butter and peanut butter chips, I couldn't get it to stick together. Read More

I have been making these for 13 years. They are my husband's favorite dessert. SO easy and wonderful!! At Easter I make them deeper around the edges with a depression in the middle and put 3 small jellybeans in the center. They look like small birds nests. Really cute!! Read More

The best haystacks recipe! Be careful about the amount of peanut butter--it will still taste great but may get sticky. Read More

This was my first time making Haystacks and they turned out great!!! I didn't have a double boiler so I melted my butterscotch chips & peanut butter in the microwave. I've made this recipe twice in the last 2 weeks. Second time I doubled it. Wonderful! Read More

Unbelievably simple and delicious. After tasting at a cookie swap I immediately looked up the recipe. I followed others' advice and flattened mine a little to make easier to bite. Had to chill mine to get them to totally harden but I doubled the recipe and may have gone heavy on the peanut butter. Will DEFINATELY make again! Read More

Love this recipe! My mom has been making these for Christmas for as long as I can remember. However I have never had them with peanuts before...she always mixes in M&M's instead. SO GOOD! Also be sure you let the peanut butter and butterscotch cool just a little before adding in the M&M's or they will melt. The recipe she gave me was 1 12 oz package of butterscotch chips 2/3 cup peanut butter 1 cup M&M's and 3 oz can of chow mein. I buy a little more than 3 oz's and just add until it looks good.:) Read More

Tastes great every time. Great use for the organic peanut butter that has separated and is now a big peanut blob at the bottom of the jar. Read More
