Easy Chocolate Haystacks


"This is a quick and easy chocolate-fix that the kids and adults will love. It's easy to play around with the ingredients to suit. My family has been making it for years and it's still a fave! Ingredients can be switched up with great results. It's also great with white chocolate and cranberries or crushed peppermints. You can use any nuts in place of the almonds."

Love this!

Excellent - my husband can make them

YUM!!!!! Everyone loves them. I used milk chocolate for the first batch and white chocolate for the second batch. I also left out the nuts on the second and added more oats and coconut. Thanks...

Very good! Everyone seemed to like the different flavors and textures in these. Thanks for sharing. :)

Great recipe wouldn't change a thing.
