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] Though commonly known and marketed as treats eaten in the royal court of Chosun dynasty, this is actually incorrect. The name Kkul-tarae was trademarked in November 7th of 2000 with intent to sell dessert similar to Dragon's beard candy in Korea[3].
