I could not exactly find a recipe exchange forum so thought to post here.
My wife and I went to Grand Asia Market in Raleigh NC this weekend and they had a candy maker there. He was making something called dragon whiskers. I'll describe what we heard and saw, then post some foreign language videos.
He said the candy itself was honey. He said a pot of honey was heated for 7 hours over a small flame. He let us touch a piece of it, it was quite hard, I would have guessed hard crack stage but he did not know the temperature he cooked it too. He then molded it into a circle (one vid I saw showed a hard tool used to do this) and stretched the circle. In front of him is a tub of corn starch. He took the ring and dipped it into the starch, then stretched and folded it over numerous times. Eventually this gets many fine strands of honey candy in the width and fineness of the softest hair. They cut or ripped about 2-3 inch segments of this off to wrap around crushed peanuts or a mixture of peanuts and coconut.
