Just in time for Halloween, here is a recipe sure to make your party guests want to toss their little bat-shaped cookies.
And it tastes, yummmm...
I created this recipe based on instructions for home-made bubble tea. However, instead of bubble tea tapioca (boba) which is black, brown, or white when cooked, I use standard white tapioca that you can get at the grocery store. It is colorless and translucent when cooked.
Tapioca pearls have NO flavor. Less, even, than tofu. That is why we add the extra sugar syrup.
Step 1: Gather your Ingredients
1 package of white dried tapioca pearls (large) Do not use instant tapioca by Minute Rice.
A jar of honey or corn syrup
Your favorite green liquid drink: Lime Kool-Aid, Green Tea, limeade, or, if you are over the legal drinking age....
Food Coloring, if desired
A medium saucepan
A mixing spoon
A small mixing bowl
A small glass cup. The effect works best if the drinking vessel is clear. Small, because for a first-timer it is difficult to drink more than a small amount of it.
Big fat straws, at least 1/4 inch diameter. Big enough to suck up those little frog eggs.
