How to freeze Haystack Cookies.
These cookies can be prepared ahead of time and frozen. Once the cookies are completely set pack them in doubled Ziploc freezer bags and place them in sturdy glad-ware containers. When defrosting take them out of the containers frozen and place on serving trays or platters uncovered. Once they come to room temperature cover them with plastic wrap or store in airtight containers.
How to make no bake Haystack Cookies
Melt the chocolate in a large microwavable bowl according to bag instructions. Add peanuts and chow mein noodles. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on to wax paper. Shake on sprinkles and allow to cool for several hours before removing from the wax paper.
How to decorate Haystack Cookies for other holidays.
They sell sprinkles for virtually every holiday and occasion. I have picked them up at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and my local grocery stores. Just change out the sprinkles to fit the holiday.
