I adore Paula Deen! I've been watching her since "Paulas Home Cooking" premiered on the Food Netwok.My middle daughter always watches her with me whenever she's on and it's become a sort of "bonding time" for us.We've whipped up so many of her recipes and I just love that time that she and I spend together.Well,when I saw this.......
I knew I had to get it for her for Christmas!This will actually be the 2nd cookbook I've gotten for her but I think she'll really love this one. I glanced through it a bit and found this yummy recipe.It would be fun to make with the kids or for a Halloween party.
Recipe c/o Paula Deen~
What you’ll need:
dry measuring cup
medium glass bowl
resealable plastic bags or plastic storage container with tight fitting lid
1 cup butterscotch Morsels
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 cup chow mein noodles
1. Put the butterscotch morsels and peanut butter into the mixing bowl. Microwave on high power for 1 minute, remove the
bowl, and stir. butterscotch morsels should melt as you stir, but if they don't, don't worry! Just put them back in the
microwave for 15 seconds more and stir again.
2. When the butterscotch is completely melted and smooth, stir in the peanuts and chow mein noodles. is will be stiff and you
may need an adult to help you . Use a teaspoon to scoop out a little of the mixture and mound it on to the waxed paper. These
should look like haystacks.
3. Let them stand at room temperature until they are set. is will take 45 minutes to an hour. Store in resealable plastic bags or
a plastic storage container with a tight fitting lid. *makes 20 to 24 small haystacks
