Tanghulu: Chinese Sweets: Haw Candy

Tanghulu literally translated means Candied Haw on a Stick (bīngtáng húlu 冰糖葫芦).  Tanghulu is a traditional winter snack in northern China, especially in Beijing.  Traditionally, tanghulu has a hardened sugar coating that comes from dipping the skewer in sugar.  There are less common varieties with a chocolate coating or sesame sprinkles.  Traditionally, tanghulu uses the Chinese hawthorn fruit (山楂 shānzhā), but other fruit can be used, such as apples, kiwi, strawberries, etc.
