It's so hard to find delicious black sesame ice cream in the average grocery store, so why not give it a shot yourself? This easy (and we mean really easy), no-special-equipment-required recipe is made with our Black Sesame Crunchy Butter.

The Black Sesame Crunch Butter is based on one of China’s most well-known desserts, Tangyuan (汤圆). It’s usually eaten on Chinese New Year with family to symbolize togetherness on Chinese New Year.

Gather your 3 ingredients, prep in 15 or min less, and wait a few hours for magic to happen in your freezer.
