The Easiest Christmas Treat Recipe Ever

In honor of the Christmas season I'm going to give you the easiest Christmas goodie recipe you will ever see:

1 bag Butterscotch chips
1/2 bag Chow Mein noodles

Melt the chips, stir in the noodles, place by spoonfuls on wax paper. Store in an airtight container (if you have any left to store). My family calls these "Haystacks" and they ask for them every Christmas. They are so good. You can make another versions with melted chocolate chips but I personally have other things to do with my,
eat it straight from the bagbake other cookies.

There you have it: easy, frugal, and popular. What more could a busy mom ask for? If you've got some yummy recipes that are simple and quick, I'd love to see them!

Meanwhile, find lots of great frugal ideas at Biblical Womanhood.

You can also use haystacks to make bird nest cookies by making a hollow with a spoon in the center and putting jelly beans in it for eggs.

I love this... and how fun to make them in the summer or fall when teaching children about farms or harvest. :)
