Reviews for Haystacks
"These are great fun! I bought a big bag of chow mein noodles and had to search the web to find out how much 3 oz is. Well.....3 oz is 2 cups! You're welcome. :)"
"I am looking for a recipe similar to this, but no marshmallows and they were made with corn flakes! Lost my recipe, can anyone help? Thanks!"
"Since I have made this a number of times I have varied the ingredients. Our favorite is a mix of butterschotch and chocolate chips. It is also worth noting that this works EQUALLY well with Fiber One cereal. Instead of noodles use 2 cups of cereal. This is a great way to use up leftover cereal and a great source of fiber!"
"Everyone loves this! It is soooo simple to make. I use variations like crunchy PB, adding peanuts, substitute milk chocolate chips,and lots more! It is very versatile. Thanks!"
"These haystacks I make at Christmas time, with one thing different....I make them with milk chocolate. Very good!"
"I had something with this name, I thought this was the same. The taste was similar,but the marshmellows made it feel strange to eat. I wonder if there is something else to add besides the marshmellows.Maybe rice krispies?"
"i used ramen noodles...bad idea. too hard. i am going to try them again with the right noodles and peanuts. i'll let you know how it turned out."
"Sweet and memorable!"
"I remember mom making these. Starrlette was my mom...she died in 1999. Thanks for posting this recipe brings back sweet memories!"
"I love these. My Mom used to make them when I was little. She died when I was 13 and since she kept all her receipes in her head we haven't had them since. Thank you so much for posting this receipe."
