Haystacks, an Easy Chocolate Snack - Margaret Ullrich


Got an e mail... 
But, who needs a half package of cream cheese?

The kids are sooo beyond cream cheese and jelly sandwiches.
The adults, watching their fat intake, are not about to schmear it on toast.
So, what to do with half a package of cream cheese?

No problem.

The holiday season is coming.
Time for snacks and dainties.
Time for Haystacks.

This recipe uses a half package of cream cheese.
No oven involved.
The kiddies can make this.
And, as any Mom knows, if the kids make it, they'll eat it.


                        Haystacks

In a mixer bowl place
4 ounces cream cheese
2 Tablespoons milk
Mix well.

Add
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Add gradually
2 Cups icing sugar
pinch of salt

Fold in 
3 Cups miniature marshmallows

Place in a second bowl
8 ounces flaked coconut

By teaspoonfuls, drop the cream cheese mixture into the flaked coconut.
Roll around to coat the cream cheese.
Remove and place haystacks on a cookie pan.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
