You know those recipes that just stick with you, embredded in your mind whether god or bad. From green jello salad to ambrosia, and of course Haystacks! As much as I love this recipe today, I ironically never tried them until I was 16 or 17. For countless others, the concept of Haystacks may be even more obscure as it could just be a southern tradition lol.
At any rate, I have to answer the looming question.. what the heck is a haystack?!
A “haystack” is comprised of butterscotch, peanut butter, peanuts, and asian rice noodles. As a whole, it’s a combination of somewhat random ingredients that just seamlessly go together.
What’s fab about this concept is, everything! It’s easy, affordable, has minimal ingredients, can easily be made in bulk, perf for any season, non vegan approved, and can even be dyed to cater to a holiday for a fun festive look!
If you love an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane with classic recipes turned vegan.. you’ll love this recipe for vegan Haystacks!
