No Bake Haystack Cookies

Hello friends.  I hope you are all well!  By the time I give you this post, I will be in New Jersey, and I will have waved at everyone in the states on the way!  Did you see me?  Feel my presence? HA!

I am bringing you these very easy cookies.  My mom used to make them, I think everyone makes them BUT, mine are somewhat of a "minimalist" version.  These are called HAYSTACKS, what are the peanuts and marshmallows doing in a haystack?  Exactly!  Is it like farm animal poo, or did huge hail fall on the haystacks?  What is it?!  I don't need 'em.  In fact, I don't like them in my haystacks.  So you can add those things into yours if you like, but mine, I will take a REAL haystack looking sweet treat any day!
These have 3 ingredients, I mean, start to finish MIGHT be 10 minutes.  You can let them sit at room temp to "set" or stick them in the fridge for a bit.  These will be great for Thanksgiving, you know that whole haystack thing.  I wonder if they sat on haystacks while they ate the first Thanksgiving meal? 

Anyway, here you go!

You will need:
1- 11 oz. bag of Butterscotch Chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter (or chunky I guess)
2 cups Chinese noodles (the hard ones!)

In a microwave safe bowl, melt together peanut butter and butterscotch chips.  Melt 1 minute at a time, and stir.  When mixture is smooth, add in noodles and mix until all combines.  Using a tablespoon, drop in piles on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.  You should get approx. 24 cookies.  Let them set at room temp or in the fridge until hardened. 

Enjoy another easy, but delicious recipe!
