Made of candied fruit on a stick, this Chinese street food is super easy to make.
1 cup warm water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 pounds strawberries and/or green grapes
In a pot on the stove, combine water and sugar.
Turn heat to low and let sugar completely melt.
Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Continue to boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not stir.
Meanwhile, place strawberries or grapes on thick bamboo skewers. (If using thin skewers, use 2 at a time.)
Coat fruit evenly with melted sugar. (Be careful! Boiling sugar is extremely hot. Do not taste or touch with bare hands.)
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to cool.
