Calling all ghosts and goblins. It’s time for Halloween and the sweet treats that come along with it. Since All Hallow’s Eve falls on a Monday this year, there are plenty of events planned for this weekend. From costume contests to hayrides, there are all kinds of reasons to get together.

And I’ll be sharing these sweet treats from my kitchen.

For Haystacks, you will need…haystacks
2 c. chow mein noodles
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/2 c. peanuts, lightly salted
1 tbsp. honey

These candies are no-bake treats many of us can remember having when we were younger. They’re kid-friendly to make and to eat.

Start by mixing together the chocolate chips, peanut butter and honey in a medium glass bowl. In a separate large glass bowl, mix together the crispy noodles and peanuts.

Place the bowl with the chocolate mixture over a pot of boiling water to make a double boiler. You want the bowl to fit just inside the top of the pot so the steam heats the chocolate from the bottom indirectly.

Stir until everything is melted and shiny.

Quickly pour the chocolate over the noodles and nuts and stir well.

Once everything is well coated, drop spoonfuls of the candy onto wax paper and allow to dry. These candies are very rich so there is no need to make them very big. I like to place mine in the refrigerator to harden completely for an hour or so.

This recipe makes about two and a half dozen candies, so there are plenty to share. I hope you get more treats than tricks this weekend and on Monday. Have a safe and spooky time. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
