Taiwanese Dessert : Ice-cream Roll with Peanut Brittle Shavings - WW

shaving tool for peanut brittle candy

Walking along Taiwan Jiufen's old street, I came across many stalls selling traditional Taiwanese snacks and desserts. I was fascinated by this elderly man who was hard at work shaving the huge slab of peanut brittle in front of him.  



I watched him for a while and ordered one ice-cream roll with peanut brittle shavings (NT35).

Cilantro was added to the dessert. Interesting! 

Surprisingly, it didn't taste weird.

This icy cold dessert was actually yummy. I finished it although I was shivering as the temperature was 17 degree Celsius on a wet, rainy morning. :D
