No-Bake Butterscotch Haystacks

Sharing is caring!

I love cookbooks but I feel that due to the ease of technology I don’t pull them out as much as I should. I mean there is something so surreal about holding a cookbook in your hands and pursuing the recipes. This year for Christmas, I decided I was going to pull out my cookbooks and commit to making at least five (5) cookie recipes that I have never made before.

This is my first new recipe. I remember eating these as a child in elementary school. I know – sugar for lunch at school – but I grew up in the 70s when sugar was acceptable.

I was so excited about trying a no-bake recipe to ease into the holiday baking season.

I found that these No-Bake treats are tasty enough to make for any occasion. Also they are perfect to make when you don’t wanna heat up your oven. These butterscotch haystacks are mounded with a mixture of peanut butter, butterscotch morsels, marshmallows and chow mein noodles for a winning combo!
