An old favorite for sure, Chocolate Haystacks are an interesting combination of chow mein noodles, butterscotch and chocolate chips.
- 2 cups semisweet or dark chocolate chips (330 grams)
- 2 cups butterscotch morsels (330 grams)
- 3 to 4 cups chow mein noodles (170 grams plus more if needed)
- 1 cups salted peanuts (plus more if needed)
Melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in the top of a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can do it directly over low heat in a large saucepan.
Remove melted chocolate mixture from heat, then stir in noodles and peanuts. I recommend stirring in 3 cups of noodles first, then adding more as needed. Fewer noodles means more chocolate.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a plate lined with wax paper or parchment paper.
Put in the refrigerator and chill until firm.
