In the past I have bought this Chinese sweet which name I cannot recall.

It is shaped in little cubes of some sort of trasparent dark jelly (not sure if it is actually gelatine, but it has a gelatinous consistency) containing peanuts and covered with slightly roasted white sesame seeds.

Does anyone know their name and can possibly tell me how to make them?


You may be thinking of Fah Sung Thong. You can find a recipe for it here.

  • It looks similar, but with way less peanuts. The base is pretty much all jelly (it vaguely resembles to a lokum). – nico Apr 21 '12 at 15:46
  • Definitely jelly? It's soft? – ElendilTheTall Apr 21 '12 at 18:11
  • Yes it is soft. I has jelly-like consistency, but I don't know whether it is actually made with gelatin. – nico Apr 21 '12 at 18:16
