Craft Simple and Tasty Butterscotch Haystacks

1. Preparing the Work Area: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This will make it easier to remove the haystacks once they set.

2. Melting the Butterscotch Chips: In a microwave-safe bowl or on the stovetop, melt the butterscotch chips until smooth. If using the microwave, heat in 20-30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval to prevent overheating.

3. Mixing in Chow Mein Noodles: Once the butterscotch chips are melted and smooth, gently fold in the chow mein noodles until they are fully coated in the mixture.

4. Adding Optional Peanuts: If using peanuts, fold them into the mixture along with the chow mein noodles.

5. Shaping the Haystacks: Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands or the back of the spoon to shape the mixture into haystack-like mounds.

6. Allowing the Haystacks to Set: Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes, or until the haystacks are firm and set.

7. Serving and Enjoyment: Once the haystacks are set, they are ready to be enjoyed! Serve them as a delightful treat or package them in airtight containers for sharing.
