Haystacks aka "Ting a lings". Chocolate chips, Butterscotch Chips, Chow Mein Noodles, and Peanuts. This link also talks about a "cookie swap" at Christmas which would be an excellent idea. (I think you should bring the recipes along with the cookies)
Chocolate Haystacks Recipe ~ Another favorite candy Mom made for Christmas was Chocolate Haystacks, they make a great no bake dessert or treat with four simple ingredients and less than 30 minutes. Great treat to make with children.
These are so easy to make and taste great. Melt cup butterscotch chips and cup semisweet chocolate chips together. Stir in cup chow mein noodles and cup salted peanuts. Put balls of it on wax paper and refrigerate for 2 hours then serve.
