Yield: 24 candies
|1 cup||Butterscotch Chips (Hershey's)|
|½ cup||Reese's Peanut Butter Chips|
|1 tablespoon||Shortening (do not use butter, margarine or oil)|
|1½ cup||Chow mein noodles coarsely broken|
Line tray with wax paper. In medium microwave-safe bowl, place butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips and shortening. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at HIGH an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred.
Immediately add chow mein noodles; stir to coat. Drop mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto prepared tray or into paper candy cups; let stand until firm. If necessary, cover and refrigerate until firm.
Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator. About 2 dozen candies. Variation:
Chocolate Haystacks: Substitute 1 cup Hershey's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips or Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips for butterscotch chips.
Proceed as directed above with peanut butter chips, shortening and chow mein noodles.
