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.
