Goober Haystacks

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 15


  • 1 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup canned chow mein noodles


Put the butterscotch morsels and peanut butter into the mixing bowl. Microwave on high power for 1 minute, remove the bowl, and stir. The butterscotch morsels should melt as you stir, but if they don’t, don’€™t worry! Just put them back in the microwave over for 15 seconds more and then stir again.

When the butterscotch is completely melted and smooth, stir in the peanuts and the chow mein noodles. Use a teaspoon to scoop out a little of the mixture and mound it onto the waxed paper. These should look like haystacks.

Let them stand at room temperature until they are set. This will take 45 minutes to 1 hour. Store in resealable plastic bags or a plastic storage container with a tight-fitting lid.
