    Dragon Beard Candy

    This is a traditional candy that was eaten in the Imperial Court of ancient China 2,000 years ago. Do you know how this candy is made?
    A skilled candy-maker repeated stretches and doubles a small mass of sugar and maltose until over 8000 fine strands are formed. Finally, the strands are trimmed and wrapped around finely chopped, lightly roasted coconut, peanuts and sesame seeds.
    Why it is called Dragon Beard Candy ? When you took a bite, the fine white sugar “hairs” will be all over your lips and chin – just like a dragon’s beard!
