This is a very tasty treat that we discovered about 5 years ago when we moved back to Taiwan. It's not one of those traditional dessert/snack we ate growing up. Some brilliant person created this in the last few years and just got really popular! Since the recipe can be so flexible with whatever kind of nuts or dried fruits you want to put in, people are going crazy coming out with different flavor creations. This chewy snowflakes has a combination of the texture of a nougat, refreshing flavor of some dried strawberries and pineapple, tangy, yogurt-y touch from the cream cheese, and the nutty and earthy flavor of the nuts. It's chewy, sweet, tangy and nutty! It's like everything you want in a sweet treat! Plus it's super fun and easy to make! Give it a try! You'll thank me later! ;)
