There are many kinds of sweets and snacks in Tianjin, and bean root candies are among them. Bean root sugar is chewed slowly in the mouth, it is very tough, and the bean flavor is strong. I often ate this candy when I was young. I want to try making soybean noodles if I have soy bean noodles at home. But I only know that bean root sugar is made from fried soybean noodles, flour and a little sugar, but there is no reference for how to make it. I crossed the river by feeling the stones and did according to my own thoughts. The finished product is not bad, except that the sugar is not as tough as the bought one, and the taste is pretty good, with a strong bean aroma. Fortunately, bean root candies are originally divided into two types, softer and harder, so my one is the former one.

Bake sugar in the oven to make the sugar firm and chewy. If you don't like chewy bean root candy, cut it into strips and eat it.
This kind of candy eats muscles, so it’s better to let it cool. The cooler it is, the more chewy it is.
This kind of sugar is mainly to taste the aroma of beans, so it is not advisable to add too much sugar. According to my requirements for sweetness, this ratio is just right.
