Simple Saturday: A Tasty Holiday Analogy

Let's try to solve that analogy again, shall we? There's a treat waiting for you once you do.

Check it out. Little Boy Blue sprung to life at the word treat. What a slacker.

Oh well, remember yesterday's analogy?

Santa Claus is to Little Boy Blue


Christmas is to COOKIES, in particular...Haystacks!

That's right. We're going to make the world's simplest Christmas cookie ever - Butterscotch Haystacks. All you need is a bag of butterscotch chips, a bag of Chinese noodles (yum), waxed paper, a microwavable bowl, a spoon, and some will power. Got the goods? Then let's get after it.

Pour the butterscotch chips in the bowl. Microwave those gems for about 2 minutes. Stir the melted goodness a bit. Return to the microwave oven for another minute or so. When the butterscotch chips have transformed into a delicious frosting-like swirl, you're ready to pour the Chinese noodles in and stir, baby, stir. While you're at it, go ahead and nibble on a few of those butterscotch covered crispy delights. Dang...good, huh?

 Then all you do is spoon rows of tiny haystacks onot the waxed  and let them cool. When they've formed into nice piles of crunchy splendor Little Boy Blue's haystacks are ready to eat!

And that's all there is to it, my friend. Four easy Simple Saturday steps to holiday cookie heaven:
