Frightful Friday: "Monster Mash" White Chocolate & Candy Corn Haystacks

"Monster Mash" White Chocolate and Candy Corn Haystacks {}
Welcome to Frightful Friday!... on a Saturday.  And one week later.

I had a wonderful idea and intentions for last Friday's post, but it was a total bust.   The batter for the cake roll I was making turned out horrible and ended up going straight to the trash.  I planned on making something Friday night or Saturday morning, but ended up running out of time.  I was leaving to go out of town to run my ninth (!!!) half marathon and that took precedent over baking and photographing some yummy desserts.  And if you are curious, my race was amazing.  I ended up setting a new personal record by over twenty minutes despite all the crazy hills that were part of the course.  It's safe to say my confidence is fully restored in my running ability and I can't wait until my next big race!

But I am back (although a day late) with a super quick, easy, and yummy dessert!  You can whip up this dessert in about five minutes.  The sweet and salty combination of these haystacks just hit the spot!  You could always substitute thin pretzel sticks for the chow mein noodles or use any type of nuts in place of peanuts.

"Monster Mash" White Chocolate and Candy Corn Haystacks

  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, salted or unsalted
  • 2 cups chow mein noodles
  • 1/4 cup candy corn, slightly chopped

    1. Melt white chocolate over a double boiler.
    2. Add peanuts and chow mein noodles to melted chocolate and stir until completely covered. I did this while keeping it over the double boiler.
    3. Mix in candy corn until evenly dispersed.
    4. Working quickly, drop mixture by spoonfuls (or use your hands to form small balls) on wax or parchment paper.
    5. Allow to cool completely and store in an airtight container.
