No-Bake Peanut Butter Haystacks

No-Bake Peanut Butter Haystacks are an easy treat that I serve every holiday season. Made with only four ingredients, you’ll love this sweet and crunchy dessert.


I can’t even remember where I first found this recipe because I’ve been making haystacks since I was a teenager. I think it was the first holiday treat I made when I first started my family. I’ve been making them year after year without fail.



( servings 8 – 10 )

11 oz. Butterscotch chips

5 oz. Can of crispy chow mein noodles

1 C. Creamy peanut butter

½ C. Salted peanuts

How To Make No-Bake Peanut Butter Haystacks


Place the peanut butter and butterscotch chips into a saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until completely melted.

Place the chow mein noodles and peanuts in a large mixing bowl, and pour the mixture over them.

Stir to combine.


Quickly drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Allow the haystacks to cool and harden before serving
