Haystacks

Growing up in the Sandhills of Nebraska, haystacks were a very common sight.  One of my favorite scenes is a flat, gentle pasture speckled with rows of hay bales spanning miles into the horizon.  I get a little excited when the corn and bean fields give way to pastures and hay fields, because I know I am home.
 
Today we made "haystacks" for snack.  These little piles of crunchy goodness make me a tad homesick, but these butterscotch treats are easy and don't require an oven-  perfect for a 100 plus degree day. 

In the past, I have tied them into lessons featuring The School Children's Blizzard of 1888, Little Boy Blue Mother Goose Poems, and Nebraska history. 

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 large bag Chow Mein noodles
  • 1/2 bag of miniature marshmallows
  • 1 bag of butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • wax paper
Here is how we made our little haystack treats:
  • In a microwave safe bowl, mix butterscotch chips and peanut butter.  Keep an eye on them and microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes.  Stir until smooth.

  • Add the chow mein noodles and marshmallows.  Gently fold the mixture until all the noodles and marshmallows are evenly covered.


  • Take a Tablespoon and drop dollops onto a waxed piece of paper.

  • Let them set and harden in a cool area.

  • We saved the best part for last-  EAT!
Who knew hay could taste so sweet?

Brett came home that night and told me that you made a "bad for you" snack. I laughed hysterically and then he found a "healthy" snack at home, though I don't remember what it was. Crazy kid.

Those will be posted next week. He wasn't impressed with the mint. LOL He happily ate the haystacks!
