Ingredients

Chow Mein-Noodle Haystacks:
Rocky Road Chow Mein-Noodle Haystacks:
White-Chocolate Chow Mein-Noodle Haystacks:

Directions

Chow Mein-Noodle Haystacks: In a large pot of boiling water, cook the spaghetti until tender. Drain well, then toss with 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to prevent sticking. In a skillet or electric fryer, heat 1-inch of oil to 365 degrees. Working in batches of 3 or 4 tangled strands, fry the spaghetti until golden brown. Let the spaghetti intertwine to form interesting shapes. Drain on paper towels. Break the spaghetti or chow mein noodles into pieces no larger than 1-inch long. In a completely dry bowl or in the top of a double boiler set over barely simmering water, melt the chocolate. Mix in the noodles, coconut, and peanuts. Drop walnut size haystacks of the mixture on a cookie sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set. Serve chilled.

Rocky Road Haystacks: Stir in chopped marshmallows to the chow mein-noodle haystack recipe.

White-Chocolate Chow Mein-Noodle Haystacks: Substitute white chocolate for the semisweet chocolate and chopped pecans for the peanuts in the original chow mein-noodle haystacks recipe.
