How to Make Christmas Haystack Cookies

These Christmas cookies can be prepared ahead of time and frozen.  Once the cookies are completely set — meaning the chocolate has set up and is not sticky anymore, then pack them in Ziploc freezer bags.

Once you do that, you can place them in sturdy freezer safe containers.  When defrosting take them out of the containers frozen and place them on serving trays or platters uncovered.

Once they come to room temperature cover them with plastic wrap or store in airtight containers.

Normal haystacks are made with butterscotch chips, but since this is Christmas, we are going with white chocolate!

Melt the chocolate in a large microwavable bowl according to bag instructions. Add chow mein noodles.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper. Shake on sprinkles and allow to cool for several hours before removing from the wax paper.

If you want, you can even add 1 cup of peanuts to this recipe. That would be a great added addition.

You can also change these cookies up for every holiday. Here are a few fun suggestions —
