Name That Snack

It snowed all day long today.

I had a craving for something sweet, and had remembered a no bake snack that had butterscotch morsels that you melt down with peanut butter. But what were they called?

So I searched everywhere for a recipe for a no bake snack that you added chinese noodles to. Were they called bird nests?

Then, when they were finished, I remembered what they were called.


Bird nests are made with chocolate and have a nest shape to hold jelly beans that look like eggs.

Why of course. Haystacks. It seems so obvious to me now.

Yum! You need to send me the recipe, I've never made those but they look delicious.

Kat, Here's a link to the recipe:

Except I used the wider noodles and I didn't add marshmallows. (And, they are disappearing fast here!)

I love those cookies, I think some of the best are the no-bake types. I love a no-bake fruit cake!
Yes, you are right, it's stone! I am going to have my honey lay a stone wall in my foyer... I can't wait.
