Hotteok, a Korean rice cookie often enjoyed during winter months and available in different varieties such as plain or filled with anything from chocolate spread to fruit preserves. This particular variety contains sweet potato filling that is lightly fried and then smothered in butter before serving it up for dessert-style snacks. It’s delicious enough by itself but if you want something extra special try topping them off just how we know best–with some heavy cream to boot.

Brown Sugar Hotteok

The best type of Hotteok is the brown sugar variety. These tempting treats come in many different flavors, but my favorite has a molasses-y filling that’s sticky and sweet on top with crispy rice dough underneath making it chewy from inside out! You can find them at local markets or make your own by following this recipe: put together an easy mix made up of primarily glutinous (stickier)rice flour alongside some salt until combined well into one cohesive ball before rolling flatbread size pieces between two divisions counterclockwise around each divisional point.

Green Tea Hotteok

For those who love green tea, this is the Hotteok recipe you’ll want to try!

Cheese Hotteok is a delicious and satisfying snack for those who love their Hotteok savory. The mix of mozzarella and cheddar cheese will make your mouth water!

The spicy brinjal leaves are pan-fried until crispy and then topped off with sesame seeds which give them their signature look! My favorite part about these snacks? Well, they’re not too messy since you can control how much sauce gets stuck in your hand thanks to its halved shape; but if I had my say…I’d probably scrap that idea because who wants cooked vegetables hanging off their arm??
