Chocolate Haystacks


Chocolate Haystacks

These peanut butter and chocolate no-bake cookies are simply divine!

What makes these Chocolate Haystacks so great is how simple they are to make. As with most no bake cookie recipes, these chocolate and peanut butter filled creations come together in no time. And they're always a hit with friends and family, too. They use very few ingredients, which makes them budget-friendly as well. Chocolate Haystacks are all about that unique texture that you get from using the chow mein noodles. It might sound odd at first, but once you taste these cookies, you'll be sold.

From the Chef: I love to make this no-bake recipe during the summer when it's hot and humid outside. The last thing you want to do is turn on your oven! The kids will love helping you break up the chow mein noodles, which give the cookies an extra crunch.
