Cotton Candies 



 

One of Naira’s New Year’s resolutions is to visit cool, fun, and new places at least once every month. This is to explore more in Los Angeles and to share these places with you, out clients.

This January, Naira visited Polar Playground! Dubbed as the Home of the Cotton Candy Characters, they make cotton candy character upon request and you will watch as the character is formed from the tacky combinations of the sweet and luscious cotton candies.

With Naira’s love for L.A. Owl Group, she tried the Strawberry Owl and it was one of the best sweet treats she ever tried!

Polar Playground also serves ice cream, milkshakes, sundaes, floats, craft sodas, and many more!

You can visit Polar Playground at 16891 Beach Boulevard Huntington Beach, CA 92647 or visit their Facaebook Page Polar Playground

A Taste of China with These Sesame Seed Dessert Balls!




One of the most popular desserts not just in China and Taiwan, but also in some Asian countries like Thailand, and The Philippines! This sweet treat is ideally eaten while it’s hot. The best thing about it aside from its luscious, chewy, and crunchy texture, is that making it in this ten easy steps!!

 

Ingredients

6 cups oil for deep-frying, or as needed

1/2 cup white sesame seeds, or as needed

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 to 1 1/3 cups boiling water

3 cups glutinous rice flour

1 cup red bean paste, or amount needed

PROCEDURES:

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. In a wok or deep-sided, heavy saucepan, begin to heat the oil to reach 250 F. Make sure that there are at least 3 inches of oil in the wok.
  3. Spread the sesame seeds over a piece of wax or parchment paper. Place a small bowl of water beside the sesame seeds.
  4. Dissolve the brown sugar in 1 cup of the boiling water.
  5. Place the rice flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the middle and add the dissolved sugar and water mixture. Stir until you have a sticky, caramel-colored dough, adding as much of the remaining 1/3 cup of boiling water as needed (don't add the water if not necessary).
  6. Pinch off a piece of dough roughly the size of a golf ball. Use your thumb to make a deep indentation in the dough and then the thumb and index fingers of both hands to form the dough into a cup.
  7. Roll 1 level teaspoon of sweet red bean paste into a ball. Place the red bean paste in the hole and shape the dough over the top to seal. It is important to make sure the red bean paste is completely covered. Continue with the remainder of the dough.
  8. Dip one ball at a time into the small bowl of water (this will help the sesame seeds stick to the dough).
  9. Roll the ball over the sesame seeds. Repeat the process with the remainder of the dough balls.
  10. Add the sesame seed balls, a few at a time, to the hot oil.
