How to make home-made Chin Chin snacks

Chin chin is a very popular snack in the Scandinavian and African countries. Very much popular in Nigeria, it’s made from the basic combination of flour, milk, and sugar. There are other optional ingredients like egg, baking powder, and nutmeg, these are strictly based on preference. It is called Les Croquettes in French

Chinchin can be either hard or crunchy. This recipe is a fine medium between the two. If you would prefer much harder chinchin, omit baking powder, do not use egg and add 1/2 cup more flour.
