Hi Sandy,

What an interesting recipe! I'll bet these haystacks are good too, a bit of salty with the sweet. And who doesn't love butterscotch and chocolate?

We gotta try this. We have a group of med and pharmacy students in our home for study sessions

and club meetings at least once a week. It gives me a chance to "feed" them (which I love).

I'm going to make these haystacks for them before Easter. They'll be my judges. :)

Thanks for the great recipe. Julia in Boca Raton, FL
