    Butterscotch No Bake Cookies are similar to the Easter favorite, Haystack cookies. They use a mixture of butterscotch cups and peanut butter to make a buttery candy crust over Corn Flakes cereal instead of chow mein noodles.

    While I kept this batch free of nuts except for the peanut butter, you can always add in a 1/2 cup of peanuts or even mini marshmallows. If I’m making a batch of these for a crowd, I will sometimes split the batch between plain Butterscotch Cookies and those with a topping.
