I love Halloween—the costumes, the kids, the parties…the snacks! Growing up, my grandmother would make these every year…and I thought it was the sweetest treat around. Now that I’m the one in charge of sending snacks to class parties and putting together trick-or-treat get-togethers, this is a recipe that is always at the top of my list. How could it not be? It’s a no-bake, 3-ingredient recipe that’s cheap, easy and delicious!
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30-second increments, stirring in between cook times. Once it’s melted, stir in the Chow Mein noodles and the peanuts. Place tablespoon-sized scoops of the mixture on a cookie sheet with wax paper and place in the fridge/freezer to cool. And that’s it!
Keep these in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them, and you can even use white chocolate with food coloring if you’re trying to match a party theme. If you want another fall variation of this recipe, substitute the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and you’ve got some yummy “haystacks”—perfect for the kiddie table at Thanksgiving! Oh who am I kidding? The grown-ups will love them too. 😉
