Advent Day 2: Ting-A-Lings

It’s a cookie, no it’s candy. I don’t know how you would categorize this treat other than saying it is a no-bake thingy. Now if you are short on time and need to “bake” some cookies for an event this would be the perfect item. Melt some chocolate chips and stir in chow mein noodles then some salted peanuts and badda-bing-badda-boom, you’re done. Have a nut allergy? Break up some pretzels to equal one cup and you have a salty substitute for the peanuts.

Ting-A-Lings: From Himself’s Mom
1 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips, I used white chocolate chips this time, yum!
1 C. butterscotch chips
2 C. chow mein noodles
1 C. salted peanuts

In a double boiler melt chips and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in chow mein noodles and peanuts. Drop by tablespoon fulls on waxed paper. Let set and store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 dozen.

Need another no-bake cookie? Try these Raggedy Robin’s

Come back tomorrow for Day 3.

    We used to make something like this with regular chocolate chips at Halloween time. We called them spider cookies. I always remember them being delicious!

    I like that you used white chocolate chips so they don't look like piles of you know what 🙂 Love these!

    OMG…These look amazing. I love all things peanut butter. thanks for stopping in to look at our Turkey & Stuffing Dumplings Stoup, Johnny's Garlic Seasoning is a combo of powder garlic, powder onion, parm cheese and some other spices. If you are unable to find it then I would just use powder garlic and powder onion.

    Why ting-a-lings? I know there has to be a story behind that name.

    You can also use Fiber One cereal in place of the chow mein noodles, then it is semi-healthy. LOL
