This quick and easy recipe for a no-bake cookie is one that my kids have been stirring together since they were in kindergarten or first grade (or when they could reach and operate the microwave!!)
These yummy treats are great to serve at a holiday party when the kiddos are involved, although I have to confess, I’m not above indulging in one or two of these goodies myself.
Butterscotch Haystacks (EASY)
1 (11 ounce) package NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 (5 ounce) cans chow mein noodles
3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
LINE baking sheets or trays with waxed paper.
MICROWAVE morsels in large, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70 percent) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in peanut butter until well-blended. Add chow mein noodles and marshmallows; toss until coated. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
DOUBLE BOILER METHOD: MELT morsels over hot (not boiling) water; stir until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter. Transfer to large bowl. Add chow mein noodles and marshmallows; proceed as above.

Editor’s Note: We at TSB thought it would be fun to kick off December by thinking cookies – lots of cookies for the holidays. In anticipation of the TSB Cookie Exchange on Thursday, Dec. 15, at 7 p.m., we will be posting a cookie recipe a day, most of which will be taken from my own kitchen files of family favorites.
