White Chocolate Ting-a-Lings

Crunchy peanuts and chow mein noodles, smothered in white chocolate and decorated with festive red, green & white sprinkles. A salty-sweet, crunchy treat!

So I mentioned that I had some friends over for Christmas treat making this past weekend.....but did I mention that we made 17 different kinds of treats between the four of us?!? Depending on who you are and how much you like being in the kitchen, that probably sounds either amazing.....OR absolutely dreadful! But between breakfast and lunch together and Christmas tunes and good conversation, the day ended up feeling like a lot of fun.....despite the fact that it was a lot of work!

My contributions to the 17? The Gingerbread Buckeyes I shared with you yesterday, some Chocolate Toffee Pretzels I'll be sharing with you tomorrow, Peanut Butter Cup-Stuffed Snickerdoodles (yummmm), and these White Chocolate Ting-a-Lings. Of the four, only one was a recipe I had made before. The rest I just winged at the last minute! But not to worry.....they all turned out DELICIOUS!!

So which ones have I made before? These White Chocolate Ting-a-Lings! (Otherwise known as haystacks, according to my friends who were all but unwilling to call them ting-a-lings.....) They are one of my all-time FAVORITE Christmas treats, made with salted peanuts, crunchy chow mein noodles, melted white chocolate, and candy sprinkles. They are the ultimate sweet & salty treat....and I could eat the whole batch, guaranteed! Just don't call them least not around me. They're ting-a-lings! Got it??

White Chocolate Ting-a-Lings
3 1/2 c. chow mein noodles
2 1/2 c. salted cocktail peanuts 
32 oz. white chocolate candy coating (I used Candiquik)

1. Mix chow mein noodles and peanuts in a large bowl.
2. Melt white chocolate over low heat until smooth; pour over chow mein noodles and peanuts and mix well.
3. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper; top with candy sprinkles.
4. Cool completely and store at room temperature.


Here are some more delicious ideas to fill up your Christmas tins!

Happy Treat Making!!

Thanks for taking a peek inside my Lemon Tree Dwelling....
I hope you feel right at home!


  1. I love the combo of salty - sweet - economical with these! Adding another to the list. Need to take the time to figure out all the things I want to make! These are on the list!!

  2. I love that you put peanuts in with the chow mein noodles! I've done chow mein noodles with peanut butter stirred into the candiquik and that is good too - but I bet with peanuts it's much better! Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. Sorry, Cathy...they're haystacks. And, according to my boys, they're awesome! I have some white chocolate, so we're going to make more of these, for sure!

  4. Look delicious, Cathy! Thanks for sharing!

  5. These look so pretty and tasty, and the name makes me smile! Pinned! (P.S. I can't imagine making 17 treats in one afternoon! Very impressive!)

  6. I love these Cathy! I should make these in the middle of summer too, why wait until Christmas!

  7. Mmmm I adore Haystacks! Love this festive twist on these!

  8. I thought haystacks were made with coconut? So I'm with you, ting-a-lings! They look delicious Cathy. :)
