White Chocolate Haystack Cookies

Haystack cookies made with chow mein noodles were a huge hit in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, so now they hold a special place in our hearts when it comes time for Christmas cookie making. Bonus: they’re one of the easiest cookies to make! Add sprinkles to the top for a pretty, festive touch.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make these easy White Chocolate Peanut Haystack Cookies (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • White chocolate bark – I like to use the white chocolate bark (called “vanilla candy coating” in this case) that comes in a microwavable tray. You just remove the outer wrap, then pop the tray with the white chocolate into the microwave and heat according to the instructions. So easy!
  • Chow mein noodles – find these noodles in the Aisan foods section of the grocery store.
  • Salted peanuts – we get these from the snack aisle in the grocery store.
  • Sprinkles – this is optional but adds a nice touch. Use any sprinkles you like in any colors that fit the occasion.

How to Make Haystack Cookies

Prepare a large cookie sheet by covering with parchment paper, wax paper, or a non-stick baking mat; set aside.

Melt the white chocolate bark in a microwave-safe bowl according to package directions. In a large bowl, combine the melted white chocolate, chow mein noodles, and peanuts.

mixing together the white chocolate, peanuts, and chow mein noodles in a red bowl with a wood spoon.

Drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons onto wax paper or parchment paper.

How to Store Leftovers

Keep the leftover haystack cookies in an airtight food storage container or in a zip-top bag. They stay fresh at room temperature for up the five days. If your kitchen is warm, keep the cookies in the refrigerator so the chocolate doesn’t melt.
