Easter is one of my faves. It symbolizes rebirth, new life & that our God is not dead. I mean seriously, it doesn't get better than that. Also, the Easter bunny still visits me and I'm definitely not hating that. But this year we'll be spending it with my nephews and niece, watching them search for eggs & search through their baskets is the only thing that could make me love this holiday more. There's just something about kids that makes everything seem more magical.
Today I'm really excited to bring you a recipe that is super easy (seriously it takes about 5 minutes) for you to make. There's only three ingredients and the recipe becomes extra festive for Easter with one more simple ingredient. Haystacks. This recipe is a fall favorite, but today I'm sharing with you an easy way to turn it into a fun festive treat for Easter.
2 C butterscotch chips (usually one bag)
1 C peanut butter
3 C chow mein noodles
optional: egg shaped candies (I used Robin Eggs & Reese Pieces eggs), peanuts, corn flakes
Instructions: Combine the butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a microwavable bowl for 30 second intervals until melted. Stirring in between. Add chow mein noodles into the mixture and stir in. You can add peanuts or cornflakes in now, but I prefer not to. Lay out wax paper, and drop tablespoon sized stacks. Let it cool on the wax paper. Enjoy!
Make it festive: Add egg shaped candies (ie. robin eggs or reese pieces eggs) in the middle to make them look like birds' nest with eggs in them.
