Kinako Candy

Kinako Candy

Only with homemade candy can you enjoy a soft texture and mild just-made flavor! Enjoy with cold green tea in the summer.

Ingredients: 20 pieces

50 g
White castor sugar or superfine sugar (or baker's sugar)
50 g
1 tablespoon
1/2 tablespoon
Additional kinako (to coat the candies)
to taste


1. Get the ingredients ready. You only need a few!
2. Put the sugar, water, and honey in a pan and heat until bubbly (it won't take 5 minutes).
3. Add the kinako, turn off the heat, and mix. It will come together like miso.
4. Spread out a 30cm x 30cm sheet of parchment paper, and put the mixture from Step 3 on it.
5. When it's cooled down a bit, form it into a log using the parchment paper. Cut the log into 20 pieces.
6. Coat with kinako and they're done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I felt so nostalgic for the 'kinako candy' I used to get from the local sweet shop when I was a child... I want to give it to my children if I have some, so I wrote down the recipe. The unsaturated fatty acids in the kinako help to make your blood healthy.
