Glutenous Rice Balls

Mmmm...a while back at superstore I saw a package of Spring Home Glutinous Rice Balls with Red Bean Paste filling in the freezer section when I was getting paneer. I love glutinous rice treats and I love red bean paste...and when I read the ingredients there was nothing sinister: glutinous rice, red bean paste, oil, water and suger. I grabbed a package. I just had to know.

Then it took us months to get up the nerve to try them...cuz you had to boil them and stuff...and I had no idea what they'd be like.
A few nights ago we finally made them out of curiosity.


And super easy - boil water. Add balls. Boil a few minutes until they float...drain and eat!
190 calories for 3 so not really healthy, but I like them. A lot.
Definitely on my new easy dessert list - apparently they make peanut centred ones too. I'll have to track them down.
If you can find them try them out. They are delish!

Addition: I tried the peanut ones. They are even better!!!

I have never heard of these but they sound really good! Right now I'm in Washington but am going home Friday. I'll have to see if we can buy them in Minnesota.
