As Popcorn is the snack when watching movie, so is chin-chin a snack for parties, movies and other form of entertainment.
Chin-Chin is made from cookie dough. The dough is rolled out, diced or cut into strips and then fried or baked.
Chin-chin is a snack in most African Parties.
*Do not add water or fresh milk to your dough when making chin-chin because water makes the chin-chin hard while the chin-chin will taste spoilt when you add fresh milk and the chinchin passes the expiring date of the milk. Add eggs instead. If you decide to use milk, then use evaporated milk. Only use fresh milk, if the chin-chin will be consumed before the expiring date of the fresh milk.
