Kimberly Schlapman's Haystacks
Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town's favorite holiday recipe is haystacks. Her mother's best friend makes them and no holiday season is complete without the "glorious concoction."
Cook Time: N/A | Yield: Varies
- 14 ounces butterscotch chips (I always use a little more)
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 (6 ounce) can salted Spanish peanuts
- 1 large can Chinese noodles
Melt butterscotch and peanut butter using double boiler over low heat. Mix noodles and peanuts in butterscotch. Drop by spoonful on wax paper. Refrigerate to harden.
