How do you make pecan haystacks?

Stirring often to avoid burning you simply melt the chocolate chips and butterscotch chips in a medium sized saucepan on the stovetop {until completely melted}.

This takes maybe 5 minutes. Not long at all!

Next, stir in the pecan halves and the chow mein noodles until they are completely covered by the chocolate mixture. That’s pretty simple!
