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.
You 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.

Total time: 
Serves: 2 dozen
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 cup chow mein noodles
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  1. Lay out a good sized piece of wax paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips in a double-boiler.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the noodles and peanuts.
  4. Drop mixture by the tablespoon onto the wax paper.
  5. Let cool and set. If your room is hot (like our kitchen was) you'll want to transfer the candy to the fridge to set.
