Let’s Make Chocolate Dings
– Recipe from Cindy of PlethoraGifts
1. What is your recipe?
Recipe from Cindy – USA
Chocolate Dings (this is my grama’s recipe and as a kid I misread the name….it was really Chocolate Drops, but the “Ding” stuck)
1 c. peanut butter (smooth)
2 Tablespoon butter
1 c. icing sugar, sifted
1 c. chopped walnuts
3/4 to 1 c. dates, chopped fine
4 to 5 sq. semi-sweet chocolate
1 piece paraffin wax (size of a “walnut”…that’s about 1 Tablespoon)
Mix first 5 ingredients together and form into balls. (Size is up to you) Melt chocolate and wax together. Sitr well. Dip balls in chocolate and place on waxed paper to cool. Keep in closed container in refrigerator. I know it may seem weird to put wax in the recipe but it makes the chocolate harden. You can find this in the baking section.
2. What is it about this cookie that you love?
These are amazing. How can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate?!
3. How did you learn to make this cookie?
My Grama used to make these so I have wonderful memories visiting her at Christmas time in Southampton, a town on Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.
4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the cookie.
I’ve been making them since I was a little girl and as a mother of 2, they have been our family’s favorite Christmas cookie which were always left for Santa.
