READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

A family staple at Christmas. My mom always called this Fried Candy and then the kids changed it to Haystacks. This is not the usual haystacks with chocolate or fried noodles.

Wow are these deliciously addictive! They were sweet, creamy, chewy, and crunchy, yum. Can't wait to make these again, they went fast lol. Made for the 8th Annual Photo tag.
