Notes

  • Haystack cookies are a no bake cookie recipe. 
  • Melt the chocolate mixture in the microwave (see the text above) or in a double boiler
  • Use your hands to lightly break the chow mein noodles into smaller pieces.
  • To ensure you've got enough melted chocolate for these haystack cookies, dump in the chow mein into the chocolate one cup at a time.  You may not need all the noodles, or you may need a few more.
  • Try adding peanuts or cashews for a salty crunch.
  • Keep your kitchen counter clean by using a layer of waxed paper or parchment paper to drop the cookies onto.
