January 22nd marks a new lunar year and no feast — be it big or small — is complete without something sweet. Ring in the Year of the Rabbit with any (or all) of our takes on these Lunar New Year desserts.
A common celebration dish, Ba Bao Fan, also known as "eight treasure rice," belongs on your table. The eye-catching sweet rice is studded with eight different fruits, nuts and seeds. Although the bejeweled dessert is brushed with sugar syrup before serving, it’s not heavily sweet. But you can always whip up some extra sugar syrup on the side to satisfy more insatiable sweet tooths.
