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 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.
