Muah Chee

Sticky, chewy and moist, Muah Chee brings back a flood of memories for those who grew up in Southeast Asia, where this Southern Chinese treat was peddled from pushcarts and pop up stalls alike. This traditional and fulfilling snack is made from simple ingredients of glutinous rice flour, crushed peanuts and sugar. The gooey, stretchy texture is not unlike Japanese Mochi, and having it while it’s still slightly warm makes the subtle nutty aromas and flavors even more enjoyable.
