A Holiday No-Bake Treat: Butterscotch Haystacks

Whether you’re making cookies for Santa, your neighbor or to enjoy at home, December is full of baking and treats. I, like many others, love to bake and eat sweets. How do I manage to do it and not gain weight? Easy! I exercise consistently and share my goodies. I also eat healthy meals daily which helps to balance out my calories. One thing I’ve been doing lately is to make a small plate of crudite (raw veggies) and dip for us to eat before dinner (usually while I am cooking). That way, I know we’re getting extra veggies into our diet and it helps us to not feel so hungry for dinner (our favs are cherry tomatoes, snap peas and carrots).

Back to the cookies though, part of the fun of the Holidays is enjoying traditions. Food especially evokes strong memories of the past…even if it’s been long ago since you’ve eaten a particular food.

I don’t know what possessed me to make these. I haven’t had them since I was a kid. They are a great no-bake treat for Holiday bake-sales and/or gifts. They hold up well and are super tasty. Enjoy!
