No-Bake Peanut Butter Haystacks

No-Bake Peanut Butter Haystacks are an easy treat that I serve every holiday season. Made with only four ingredients, you’ll love this sweet and crunchy dessert.

I can’t even remember where I first found this recipe because I’ve been making haystacks since I was a teenager. I think it was the first holiday treat I made when I first started my family. I’ve been making them year after year without fail.


( servings 8 – 10 )

11 oz. Butterscotch chips
5 oz. Can of crispy chow mein noodles
1 C. Creamy peanut butter
½ C. Salted peanuts


Place the peanut butter and butterscotch chips into a saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until completely melted.
Place the chow mein noodles and peanuts in a large mixing bowl, and pour the mixture over them.
Stir to combine.
Quickly drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Allow the haystacks to cool and harden before serving.
