A Different Kind of Haystack CookieThese cookies/candy have an unusual list of ingredients but they are so good. I've made them with just pretzels or just chow mein noodles. Today, I had a little of both leftover and threw 'em all in. You can really add whatever you might like in there. It's a great way to use up all those odds and ends. Plus, it tastes good, too!


Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: about 12, depending on the size.


  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips, any type. I used white chocolate chips today.
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • 1 cup broken up pretzels
  • 1/2 cup chow mein noodles
  • 1/3 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 cup raisins, cranberries or whatever you like. I used a variety pack from Trader Joe's. It contains golden raisins, cherries, blueberries and cranberries.
