Guess what’s right around the corner? SPRING!!! What a lovely time of year Spring is with fresh green foliage and bright pastel flowers popping up out of the dormant ground. I love the colors of Spring and the promise of warmer weather almost as much as I love Fall’s colors and the relief from the Summer’s heat! You know what else I love in the Fall? The haystack candy recipe that I make every year!
So…I was thinking the other day that I need to find a decorative way to use them in a Spring time dessert that way I have an excuse to eat them and this is what I came up with!
Here’s what you need to make them too:
1 Bag of dry Chow Mein Noodles
1Bag of Butterscotch Morsels
Little Birdie “Peeps”
Chocolate egg shaped candies
Here’s how easy they are to make:
The easiest way to melt the butterscotch morsels is to do it in the microwave. Set your power to 50% and heat in 35 second increments until they are fully melted. Once they are melted, fold in the dry Chow Mein noodles. Next, quickly press a tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each cupcake liner in a muffin tin. Once the haystacks uuhhmm-Once the egg’s nests harden, fill with your favorite egg shaped chocolate candies and place a birdie ‘Peep’ on top!
We would love to hear if you tried these or if you have another creative variation so let us know by leaving us a note or a picture in the comment section below!
