I’m ba-ack! Woo-hoo! My jury duty service is over. To be honest it was an enlightening and frightening experience, but I’m glad to be able to to my part. And I’m glad it’s over. As I told you before, I usually blog late at night, after the fam is asleep and the house is quiet. But, last week, late at night wasn’t an option for me. It just about wore me out. I was just too tired. So I appreciate y’all’s patience with not having any recipes last week. But, I’m back on schedule this week and happy to bring you some new posts.
Butterscotch haystacks are one of my wife’s most favorite treats. Each year at Christmas Laura’s mom, Rita – we call her Aunt Reet, makes Heather a batch. It’s kind of become a tradition and I wouldn’t touch making those for a million bucks. Do you have recipes like that? Something that someone has always made and though you’re completely capable of doing it, you don’t because you don’t want to ruin that tradition. It just wouldn’t be the same.
Well, here’s another take on haystacks… only made with corn flakes. They’re light, crispy, tasty, and the best part… super easy!
- 1 package butterscotch morsels (11 oz)
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 4 cup Corn Flakes
- 1 cup peanuts
- Combine butterscotch morsels and peanut butter in a small sauce pan and melt over low heat, stirring frequently. (I advise against the use of the microwave here – a few bad experiences with butterscotch morsels – I’m just sayin’.)
- Once melted, pour over corn flakes and peanuts in a large bowl. Stir gently to combine.
- Drop onto wax paper and allow to cool completely.
