We love these snacks. Sometimes, I vary this up and use Reese's peanut butter chips or either dark or semi sweet chips in place of the butterscotch chips. It's all a matter of what you like or have on hand. The kids LOVE to make these. NOTE: I rarely keep wax paper on hand, I just drop them on tin foil.
Even after I added more peanut butter and peanut butter chips, I couldn't get it to stick together.
I have been making these for 13 years. They are my husband's favorite dessert. SO easy and wonderful!! At Easter, I make them deeper around the edges, with a depression in the middle and put 3 small jellybeans in the center. They look like small birds nests. Really cute!!
The best haystacks recipe! Be careful about the amount of peanut butter--it will still taste great, but may get sticky.
I replaced the peanuts with rice krispies and marshmallow. Yummy!!
Unbelievably simple and delicious. After tasting at a cookie swap, I immediately looked up the recipe. I followed others' advice and flattened mine a little to make easier to bite. Had to chill mine to get them to totally harden, but I doubled the recipe and may have gone heavy on the peanut butter. Will DEFINATELY make again!
This was my first time making Haystacks and they turned out great!!! I didn't have a double boiler, so I melted my butterscotch chips & peanut butter in the microwave. I've made this recipe twice in the last 2 weeks. Second time, I doubled it. Wonderful!
this is a great cookie....another variation is to use a few milk choc. chips along with the butterscotch and leave out the p.b.....yum!
