Boy Blue Haystacks
Equipment: large pot or mixing bowl, mixing spoon, can opener, pot holders, wax
paper, teaspoon, rubber scraper, cookie pan or two dinner plates
Ingredients: 1 10-ounce package butterscotch bits (or near to 10-ounce)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 medium-size can chow mein noodles
To melt the butterscotch in a microwave oven, empty the package into a
microwave bowl and microwave for five minutes. Then check to see if they
are melted; if not, zap them another few minutes. Use pot holders to take
the dish out when the butterscotch is melted.
To melt the butterscotch on the stove, empty the package into a large pot.
Use a low flame. You will have to keep stirring, so it doesn't burn. Use a
pot holder to hold the handle. When the butterscotch is melted, take the pot
off the stove.
Measure 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Put the peanut butter into the
butterscotch and stir it together. When it is all mixed, add the can
of chow mein noodles. Stir until the chow mein noodles are mixed in.
Cover the cookie pan or dinner plates with wax paper. Use the teaspoon
to scoop out spoonsful of the mixture--you can use your fingers or a
rubber scraper to push the recipe off the teaspoon. Put the "haystacks"
close to each other, so all of the mixture will fit on the cookie pan or plates.
Put the Boy Blue Haystacks into the refrigerator for at least one hour,
so they can chill and get firm.
Boy Blue wouldn't stay asleep if he had these to eat!
