I think the less-than-desireable part of the teenage years is something that has to happen in order for us to come to accept the idea that the kids are going to move out of the house some day. Or maybe I should say, to make us LOOK FORWARD to them moving out.

I heard on the news last week that with the economy the way it is, 30% of kids move back in with their parents after they've moved out or completed college.

............... Hehehehee! No. But if it helps any, once they get into their early to mid-twenties, they become human again and they're just as much a friend as they are your kid. So, don't worry, it gets better.

Then they give you grand kids and life is good!

If you don't like butterscotch, you're in luck. The butterscotch flavor isn't very noticeable, if at all.

Butterscotch Haystacks ~

4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
4.5 cups Chow Mein Noodles (the bag has 4.5 cups in it, can has 3 cups)
1 cup m&m's (add these if you want. I usually don't)
2 cups peanuts (I use the roasted salted peanuts)


1. Line baking sheets or counter top with wax paper (or plastic wrap).

2. In a large saucepan, cook and stir chocolate chips over low heat until melted.

3. Stir in butterscotch chips until melted.

4. Add peanut butter.

5. Stir until smooth.

6. Remove from heat.

7. Fold in Chow Mein noodles, m&m's and peanuts until everything is well coated.

8. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper or plastic wrap. You can make them any size you want or make some large and some small.

9. Let them cool. They stay good at room temperature for a couple days, but the rest should be stored in a big ziploc baggie in the freezer or refrigerator.

There is another kind of butterscotch haystacks that are the color of the butterscotch chips and I think they have shoestring potato chips in them. If you have that recipe, I'd like to see it. That's the one I was looking for when I found this one.

If you go back in the thread -
you'll find that the "Internet Gods" gave me permission to "Hijack" my
own thread,
Since I've done that - I also asked them to give leave, to allow someone
else to "Hijack" a thread.
Feel free to do any "Hijacking" you want!
Who cares where it goes!

Aaahhh another recipe!
I figured if I "prodded" enough - one of the "cooks" would throw
something interesting in!
Thanks Kids!!

Stir until everything is well-blended. Cover a (rectangular) cookie sheet will aluminum foil.

Spread small cocktail rye bread slices (3"x3" size?) out to cover entire cookie sheet, leaving a little bit of space between them.

Put approximately 1 to 2 Tablespoons of the meat mixture on each piece of rye bread and put entire pan under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes.
