My daughter and I make these in the spring - we mold them into little bird's nests (using our hands) and fill them with malted milk chocolate eggs and/or jelly beans. Thought this idea might be useful! I keep them in the refrig. too and serve at room temperature. They're also good to use as 'bowls' for an ice cream sundae. We chop the peanuts before adding them...

A bit different, maybe...but these are delicious little candies. Great to add to cookie trays, as they always seem to draw attention and strike up guests' curiosity. Everyone that has tried them has loved them. I store in refrigerator, but let come to room temp. to serve. Simple to make and SO much fun to eat!...my kinda recipe:) ~Manda

When I was growing up we called these "Butterscotch Haystacks". This such a quick and easy recipe and yet so yummy! If you have someone in your family with peanut allergies, just leave out the nuts and add extra chow mein noodles. You can also use different flavors of baking chips if you don't like butterscotch or what a different flavor. Peanut butter flavor is really good.

I have to admit it...I loooove this candy! SUPER easy to make and I've yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it (but they were ALL butterscotch lovers!).

Great use of the noodles. Kid friendly recipe that taste yummy too. We broke the noodles in half and made smaller candies.

I always include these in my christmas candy boxes. At first glance the ingredients may sound strange, but don't let it fool you. These are great.

My daughter and I made these for a project for school. Strange combination your right but the kids in her 4th. grade class all wanted the recipe ;-) Very good candy, I know we'll make these again.
