Food Storage Meals and Menu Planning - Snack: Chocolate Haystacks!

Today's Snack is a PERFECT
Food Storage Treat!
EVERYTHING
in this recipe can be stored on a shelf.
It's easy and fun and the kids will love to
come home to this after school snack!
Here's the Recipe:
1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Morsels
(I've used Milk Chocolate and it's just as good.)
1 cup Butterscotch Morsels
(You can replace the Butterscotch with Peanut Butter Morsels.)
2 cups Mini Marshmallows
1 can (5-ounces) La Choy Chow Mein Noodles
(About 2 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup Dry Roasted Peanuts
Instructions:
Place the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a
large microwave-safe container. 
Heat in microwave on high for 1 minute at a time
stirring in between for 2-3 minutes or until melted.
Add chow mein noodles, marshmallows, and peanuts
to melted chocolate immediately.
Stir until well coated.
Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
If refrigerator space is not available, allow haystacks to stand
on the counter until firm.
It will take a little longer . . . but the results are the same.
Here's the PDF:
It's a great sweet and salty snack!
