Chow Mein noodles, Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter Chips, or Butterscotch Chips (whatever kind you prefer)
Step 1: Melt your chips in a bowl. We tried the microwave first and I burned up the chocolate chips. The glass bowl in a pot of boiling water (with a little milk) worked much better for us.
Step 2: Spread your noodles in a bowl or dish and pour the melted chocolate in. You want just enough to coat the noodles.
Step 3: (This is the fun part!) Mix the ingredients and form "haystacks" with your hands. (Be careful not to burn your hands on the hot, melty chocolate.) We did ours just a tad bit smaller than baseballs.
(It looks like someone was taste-testing in this picture. ;))
We used all three flavors because everyone in the house wanted something different, but in my opinion the butterscotch with a little peanut butter is the best! The addition of coconut or pecans to the chocolate would have been delicious, too. We ate these until our bellies hurt a little. That's how you know they're really good. ;)
This is such a simple and fast treat to make. I will definitely be whipping up a batch for the next party I attend. :)
