No-Bake Fall Haystacks

Haystacks are a simple, kid-friendly treat made of crunchy chow mein noodles, marshmallows, and Reese’s Pieces coated in melted peanut-butter-and-butterscotch goodness. They’re great for holiday cookie swaps, bake sales, or when you're suddenly craving something sweet on a Wednesday night.

Fall Haystacks 

What you need

  • 6 oz. chow mein noodles
  • 1-1/3 cup butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows (a little under 1/2 a bag)
  • 1/2 cup Reese's Pieces


In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine butterscotch chips and peanut butter. Heat in 30-second increments, stirring in between until mixture is combined and smooth.

Add in noodles, marshmallows, and candy pieces, gently stirring to coat everything.  When everything is coated evenly, use a spoon to drop tablespoon-sized cookies onto wax paper. Refrigerate for one to two hours or until firm.
