Eat Drink & Be Mary: No-Bake Butterscotch Haystacks

4.08.2014

No-Bake Butterscotch Haystacks




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.


No-Bake Butterscotch Haystacks    

Ingredients:
2 C butterscotch chips (usually one bag)
1 C peanut butter
3 C chow mein noodles
Wax Paper
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.  

**In the future I'll be needing a couple guest posters.  If you would be interested email me mbolster1007 [at] gmail [dot] com with your blog link and your topic idea.  Thanks so much, plus it'll help bring some extra eyes to your blog.  

Do you make anything special for Easter each year?  What's your favorite Easter dessert?  Does the Easter Bunny still visit you?  Come back next week, I'll be sharing another recipe perfect & specifically made for Easter :)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... [1 Peter 1:3 NIV]

  19. Good idea using the butterscotch. And if you use skinny pretzel stix instead of the noodles, you get that sweet/salty balance. :) [#PinItThurs]
