READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by mollypie

This is so easy and so impressive. The taste is fantastic. The texture is smooth and creamy. The flavor depends on the quality of chips you buy but the kids enjoy the store brand (cheap ones) the best They make great teacher gifts, if you package them up nicely.

Add a small package of chow mein noodles and you have haystacks...even more crunchy and delicious.
