Valentines Day dessert



  • Line a large baking pan with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Add the noodles and peanuts to a medium mixing bowl. Gently toss to mix. Set aside.
  • In a double boiler, melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips over low/medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour the melted chocolate on top of the peanuts and noodles and gently toss to coat.
  • Transfer the mixture onto the lined baking pan, in the shape of “haystacks.” I used a Tablespoon but a cookie scoop would work, also.
  • Sprinkle each haystack with the red jimmies. Place a halved candy cherry on top of each haystack. Sprinkle with the heart-shaped confetti sprinkles.
  • Chill for 20 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
  • ENJOY!! You can store the haystacks in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.Valentine's Day Dessert

  1. Hi Princesspinkygirl!

    I live in the UK and therefore my idea of chow mein noodles may not be the same as yours! To me these are either uncooked noodles in a packet ready to be boiled and added to a dish or ready-cooked noodles ie preboiled to be added straight to a dish. Some years ago I lived in the USA and I do have a recollection of noodles added to snack mixes which I think might have been deep-fried so my question is are these the type of noodles (i.e. the latter) you are using in your haystacks?
