Would make this again.
My family has made these for years too and we call them "Yankee Doodle Noodles". Still a family favorite! 5 stars

Would make this again.
Have made these every year for decades; they're easy and always popular. Try with cashews instead of peanuts. 5 stars

Would make this again.
P.S. In my grandma's cookbook these were called Ting-a-Lings. 4 stars

Would make this again.
These are great, but I switch it up by swapping potato sticks for the chow mein noodles, thereby taking care of the sweet/salty craving. 4 stars
