Lately I am watching a lot of videos about Korea (because I will live there for 6-months), and I received e-mail about a Korean candy called Dragon Beard, here is the link.
They start with a solid block of honey, and then slowly stretch it into 2, then 4, then 8 … all the way to 16384 strings of honey! To prevent it from sticking, they dip it into starch or some kind of flour mixture every time they twist it. Once that step is done, they fill it with different kinds of nuts.
Thanks Night Butterfly!!
