No-bake butterscotch haystacks

Yield: 24 candies

Measure Ingredient
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.
