Haystack Cookies are an easy, no-bake treat filled with chocolate, peanut butter, cashews, toffee bits, and chow mein noodles. You can whip up this easy treat in just minutes!


  • 1 cup chocolate chips I recommend Ghirardelli
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy
  • ¼ cup toffee bits I use Heath
  • ¼ cup cashews roughly chopped
  • 1 cup chow mein noodles


  • To a large microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then repeat until smooth and fully melted.
  • Pour in the toffee bits, chopped cashews, and chow mein noodles. Stir to evenly distribute and get everything coated.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper and use a cookie scoop to scoop out the haystacks on the prepared pan.
  • Let the haystacks set for approximately 15 minutes. Popping the baking sheet into the fridge will speed up the process.


Lightly chop the chow mein noodles if you like a smaller texture. If you don’t have/like cashews, use peanuts, walnuts, or almond slivers.Creamy or crunchy peanut butter can be used. Use your favorite chocolate chip, I use Ghirardelli 60%, but semi-sweet or white will work. Candy/almond bark also works.Store covered at room temperature for up to two weeks.
