Peanut Butter Haystacks Recipe


  • 5 oz can of Chow Mein Noodles Crunchy ones

  1. This step is optional. Take your brown permanent marker and color a “handle” on the top of the “pitchfork”. Let dry

  3. Add your 5 oz can of chow mein noodles and stir until all noodles are coated.
  4. Drop by teaspoon on a parchment covered cookie sheet. You can take your fingers and stick a few up or keep them all flat.
  5. Add a candy pumpkin to the side of the haystack. Make sure pumpkin is touching the noodles. (They will stick once they are cooled)
  6. Take your “pitchfork” and stick in the haystack anywhere you’d like.
