  1. Do these ever go bad? I have some leftover in a ziplock baggy that my grandmother made and I’m wondering if I can still eat them!!

  2. In NC we called these Haystacks, like you said! Our recipe is a little different as we used half a bag of butterscotch chips and half a bag of semi-sweet, a bag of chow mein noodles and salted roasted peanuts (any kind but in those days there wasn’t any such thing as “dry roasted”). I’ve seen some with mini marshmallows in the mixture but not us. We just melted the chips in a pan over low heat then added the nuts and noodles, mixed well and dropped on wax paper. Hmmm…Nuts and Noodles has a ring to it. lol
