4 + 3 = Haystacks

Today is December 7th. This recipe is ironically fitting for the date because it includes 4 ingredients and 3 steps. 4 + 3 = 7. (I just studied for my math final, which is probably why I thought to connect those two.) Anyways, today’s recipe is another family favorite…Haystacks!

Holiday Haystacks from Gourmet Gab's Kitchen

It might seem odd to use chow mein noodles in holiday baking but I promise these treats are unique, tasty and super simple. Plus, people will think you are an absolute culinary genius for pairing these ingredients together!


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 12 oz. package of butterscotch chips (or chocolate)
  • 6-7 oz. package chow mein noodles
  • Holiday sprinkles


  1. Melt peanut butter and butterscotch chips together slowly in the microwave.
  2. Add chow mein noodles. Mix well.
  3. Drop in small clusters on wax paper. Top with festive sprinkles.

(Tip: When storing these, stack layers in a container separated by wax paper so they do not all stick together!)

Love food. Love self. Love life.
