Kids in The Kitchen- Reeces Peanut Butter Hay Stacks!

Goodmorning everyone! This week has been awful busy for us ... and even though its rained everyday for a week we have still managed to keep on the go! Got to love the summer! I never knew there were so many indoor activities you could do ... The things that happen when you get creative! :)
So I went Easy for this weeks Kids in The Kitchen, with our no-bake reeces peanut butter haystacks, ok anything with chocolate and peanut butter in them you know is DELISH! And Lu had a blast eating, I mean making them! Lets get started!

No Bake Cookies- Reeces Peanut Butter Hay Stacks!
This is what you'll need ... 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of milk choc. morsels, and 1 and 1/4 cup of chow mein noodles (can be found in the international food section of any grocery store.)

You'll need to measure and pour the morsels, and by the time Lu got done picking at them, we has a little less than a cup :) Place in microwave for 1 min.
mix the peanut butter in AFTER choc is melted. Lu did love the spoon! I actually have a picture of her eating off it several times, I dont know why I didn't put it on here, shame on me! Measure out the noodles, and then pour then into the choc/peanut butter mixture, and lightly stir, or fold in. I wish people could actually see her in action when she is doing this stuff, it is quite hilarious sometimes, and I don't post the "blooper" pictures, but I should, she is a "big" girl now and INSIST that I let her do EVERY part, no matter if at the end you could lick the counter top because they taste so good, just like reeces. Anyhow, the next step is obvious place them on some prachment paper, and the recommened time is 2 hr chill in the fridge, which we never follow because we are to anxious to eat, so 15 mins in the freezer works just fine!
Don't they look delsih?? YUM (this is before they are chilled)
My big girl even washes the dishes ..... Oh I think this is the reason we really have kids LOL!

  1. Yummy! I would have never ever thought of putting chow mein noodles in there! I'll have to try this!

  2. My kids and I used to make these when they were younger. I don't know why we still don't. It could be because my daughter has gotten so picky. My son and I will make a batch! lol
