- ⅛ cup brown sugar
- 2 spring onions sliced
- ⅛ tsp Chinese five spice powder
- ⅛ cup peanut butter
- 4 tbsp salted butter
- 2 cups glutinous rice flour
- 1 cup warm water
Add the peanuts to a bowl with the brown sugar, spring onion, and Chinese five spice.
Heat up a small pot on low heat. Melt the butter, then add the peanut butter.
Add the rest of the filling to the pot. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until mixture has homogenized. Stir constantly.
Pour the glutinous rice flour into a mixing bowl. Add water and mix vigorously.
Work the dough with your hands until it becomes one nice blob.
Put down a couple damp paper towels on your counter, the dough won't stick to this.
Cut the dough in half. Roll each half into a snake.
Cut the snake into small rectangles, about an inch wide.

Boil a pot of water on medium heat. Add the tang yuan. Boil until they rise to the top, about 7 minutes.
Serve in a bowl of hot water or green tea. Enjoy!
