My Aunt used to make what she called chinese chews, or sometimes they
called them Charleston Chews. I've not been able to find the recipe.
All the "chinese chews" I've found on the net do not use chocolate. Her
recipe used chocolate as well as dates and nuts. They were heavenly!

Anyone have a recipe?

Thanks,
Chris
