Black sesame dessert soup, a popular Chinese sweet, uses black sesame flour as the base of the thick soup. To echo the flavors, we grind toasted black sesame seeds with peanuts and sugar to form a fun sweet-savory candy straw that makes the average Pixy Stix flavors look just plain boring.
Special equipment: You will need a very clean coffee or spice grinder for this recipe.
You will also need about 20 (8-inch) paper straws.
To fill the paper straws, you will need a couple of pieces of paper, to cover your work surface and make a funnel with—any kind of paper will do. Alternatives to a paper funnel are a No. 16 Open Star or No. 5 Round piping tip. You will also need a toothpick.
