Chocolate Haystacks

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Phoenix 0880

These are a simple haystack, quick and easy to make. I Use Canola, Safflour or Vegetable oil in this recipe depending what I have in the house. Use Peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch if desired

These are the BEST! They are going in my christmas cookie repetoire for good! No baking even necessary, just what you need during busy times. Anyway, my aunt has been making these for years and I adore them. Thanks so much for posting so I will always have the recipe!
