Chocolate Rice Noodle Haystacks

These are some of my favorite sweets. Easy and sooooo good! I found the recipe in a church cookbook and made a couple adjustments after making it. The original recipe called for chow mein noodles but I prefer the rice noodles. Yield is an estimate as it depends on how big you scoop them :) Update: Dec 2011 - I made these today and reduced the peanut butter by 2 Tbsp and it worked well. I have updated the ingredient amount to reflect the change.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and peanut butter in the microwave (be careful not to scorch! - my 900W microwave takes 1.5 minutes on 70% power or about 70 seconds on high), stirring every 25 seconds or so until smooth. You can also use a double boiler on the stovetop.
  2. Stir in the noodles and marshmallows.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper or parchment paper and allow cookies to harden (may have to chill in fridge).
  4. *Note: These are made by La Choy and come in a blue cardboard can. They are sold as a "topper" for salads or main dishes. Not to be confused with rice noodles that you would add a sauce to or use in a soup!

So easy to do. I also used chow mein noodles because I didn't find rice noodles. Next time I'll use only chocolate chips, and no butterscotch chips. It was hard to separate in small cookies. So I made large cookies. It's very good and crunchy. Thanks flower :) Made for PAC Spring 2012

A throwback to my childhood, these no-bake cookies are awesome! I used chow mein noodles because the only rice noodles we have here have to be boiled and wouldn't work for this. So easy - I will make these again! They also took under 10 minutes to make and did need to go in the fridge to harden. Made for my adopted chef for Fall PAC 2011. Thanks Flower7!

My DD made these for my grandson's farm themed B-Day. I loved them! She did use chow mein noodles, because I told her the wrong kind to buy. They were still great. Next time we'll use the rice noodles! Great recipe.
