Maybe for Next December's Manger Scene

I wonder if StayPuft was the fourth unknown Wise Man?

Baby Jesus Haystacks

contributed by a viewer!

Make haystacks to represent baby Jesus lying in the hay in the manger.

This is really easy. No oven involved, just the microwave.
bullet 1 package choc chips,
bullet ½ cup peanut butter,
bullet 4 cups chow mein noodles,
bullet mini marshmallows.

Melt choc chips and peanut butter together for 1 min in microwave, stir and microwave for additional 1 ½ min until melted. Add chow mein noodles and stir with 2 spoons/forks as tossing a salad.

Drop onto waxed paper.

Add a marshmallow to represent baby Jesus.
