We’re always on the hunt for something to make for Anita to take to work to share with her co-workers. Usually that means snacks. And although we like to keep it simple, that doesn’t mean we’d ever sacrifice flavor. When I came across this recipe for Ting-A-Lings I quickly put it on our to-make list. They’re crunchy, chocolatey, and butterscotchy and fun! Oh yes, they disappeared in no time.
Ting-A-LingsYou can make all sorts of different variations on Ting-A-Lings. Use white chocolate instead of semi-sweet. Try different nuts. Substitute fried Ramen noodles (a dash of oil in a skillet, add crushed Ramen, and fry until golden. Also great on salads or on soups!). You name it, you can’t go wrong.

For a nice twist, substitute your favorite chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts would be great!) for the salted peanuts. Toast them for a few minutes in a small skillet first, letting them cool completely before adding to the chocolate and butterscotch mix.

  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 cup chow mein noodles

  • Lay out a good sized piece of wax paper.
  • Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a double-boiler.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the noodles and peanuts.
