About: "I am a crafty girl. I make things. Lots of things. I'll keep making things until my fingers fall off. Then I will grab my hot glue gun reattach those suckers & Make More Things." Kathy R. Jeffor…

Tanghulu is a delicious Chinese treat. Hard candy, sugar coated fruit. Very easy to make and super yummy.


12 or more strawberries
1/2 cup water
1 cup white sugar

Bamboo skewers
2 glass or ceramic cups
Measuring cups

Step 1: Prepare Your Strawberries

Start by washing your berries well and dry them completely with paper towels. Now skewer them. Dry them again after you’ve skewered them to make sure they’re completely dry. Now set them aside.

Step 2: Boil Sugar and Water

Pour the water and sugar into the pan on medium heat. Stir until dissolved halfway. Stop stirring increase heat to medium high and let boil. Once it has reached a boil set a timer for 15-20 minutes.

Step 3: Test the Syrup

Test your sugar syrup for readiness by chilling a metal utensil in ice water, then dip it like it’s fruit. If the sugar dries immediately then you’ve reached the right temperature and you’re ready to make Tanghulu!

Step 4: Dip Your Berries

Remove from heat and dip berries immediately in your sugar syrup mixture. Tap gently to drip and carefully place your skewers in a cup to dry. Try not to let any of the berries touch each other
Repeat until all berries are covered. Now wait 10 minutes for them to harden.

Step 5: All Done!

Once they have hardened you can take a bite. Enjoy your delicious crunchy treats.
