Haystack snacks, made with chow mein noodles, are as timely as ever. First made popular in the 1960s, they’re still quick, easy, tasty and reasonably nutritious, with a dose of peanut butter or almond butter providing good monounsaturated fats and some protein. Here are two versions: one with butterscotch morsels and the other with white chocolate. We sprinkled them with some coarse salt for a sweet-salty combination.

Butterscotch Haystacks

1 (11-ounce) bag butterscotch morsels
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 (5-ounce) cans chow mein noodles
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

1. Place morsels and peanut butter in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium-high 1 minute. Stir until melted. Stir in chow mein noodles and marshmallows.

2. Cover a baking sheet with wax paper. Drop noodle mixture by spoonfuls onto paper. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes. Makes 60.
