Kkul-tarae (꿀타래; lit. "honey skein"), also known as Korean court cake, is a Korean dessert and variation of Dragon's beard candy.[1] A hard dough of honey-maltose mixture is kneaded, twisted, and stretched (pulled) into 16,384 skeins of silky threads, in which assorted candied nuts, chocolate, or other fillings are wrapped.[2] The mildly sweet, bite-sized treats were eaten in the royal court in the past. Nowadays, it has been marketed to symbolize wishes of health, longevity, and fortune to the consumer or recipient.
