Our kids really love to help out in the kitchen. This recipe is perfect because it’s so simple–just a few ingredients and a few simple steps. It also ties in perfectly with our Three Little Pigs theme.
We use the following simplified haystacks recipe:
- 1 cup peanut butter chips**
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1/2 can chow mein noodles
Melt the peanut butter and butterscotch chips in a double boiler, fondue pot, or microwave. Remove from heat. Stir in chow mein noodles. Make small mounds on wax paper and let your child mold them into straw houses. So easy and delicious!
**If your child has a peanut allergy, substitute chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, and call it a stick house!
Here’s a visual so your child can follow along and read the recipe with you.
