  1. In a saucepan, melt the butterscotch chips over low heat, stirring frequently. When they are completely melted, remove from the heat and stir in the noodles until they are evenly coated. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Allow cookies to set up for 20 to 25 minutes, then peel them from the waxed paper and enjoy!

I didn't find these cookies that good. I must have burned the chips or something.

I always add some peanuts to the mixture. My family just loves these. These make great goodies to give at Christmas

WAY TOO SWEET! I would either add more chowmain noodles, or add in peanuts like others suggested. Make sure your haystack is SMALL. They are way too rich and sweet to eat a big one. I will make these again but with the suggested changes.

These are even better if you add 1 cup of dry roasted peanuts!

My mother always made these for Christmas when I was a child to bring to my aunt's annual party on Christmas Eve. Her's had CASHEWS in addition to the butterscotch and noodles and she called them "Chinese Chews", which I am sure she didn't make up herself. I think I have heard them called "Haystacks" also.

I LOVE these things. I didn't think I was much of a butterscotch fan but I guess I am because I couldn't stop eating these! I only use 1c butterscotch chips and about 8oz noodles (or as many as can be lightly coated) otherwise I think they'd be way too sweet. I add about 1 tsp shortening to the chips & melt them in the microwave on low. They are good with cashews or peanuts but they are wonderful plain too. If you make them small & more flat than round, they are easier to eat. Super fast & easy to make!
