Just in time for celebrating the Lantern Festival (February 5th), the last day of Lunar New Year celebrations, this 2nd edition, limited-run kit helps you make from scratch and devour Tang Yuans (汤圆) or glutinous rice balls with black sesame filling, an essential and iconic dessert that has been eaten for over 1,000 years! 

Gather your crew to make this together or do this as a fun solo project! Available until we run out! 

This set contains:

  • 4oz jar of Black Sesame Crunchy Butter (special recipe using coconut oil): Made with black sesame seeds & peanuts, a touch of brown sugar, and addicting crunchy bits, it's commonly found in the center of Tang Yuans. This batch replaces lard, a traditional ingredient in tang yuan, with coconut oil so friends of all diets can enjoy. If you have extra leftover, it's also a delicious, slightly sweet addition on anything from toast or oatmeal for breakfast, sliced apples as a midday treat, or drizzled onto vanilla ice cream to celebrate any occasion. (Not gluten-free)
  • 2x 2.1oz jars of Sticky Rice Flour
  • Flower and Berry Garnish: Add some color with dried Osmanthus flowers and goji berries 
  • A Brief History of Tang Yuans
  • Step-by-Step Written and Video Instructions: Co-founder Hedy walks you through how to make the Tang Yuans using our kit and includes family heirloom tips and tricks to help you get the dough and folding just right!

So fun to make and very delicious

Absolutely loved the tang yuan kit! It came with clear directions and it was super easy to follow. They came out delicious and there was enough left over to freeze and make a batch in the future. A fun family activity too!
