Love Letters

It isn’t Chinese New Year with out Love Letters!

Love letters are sweet cylindrical biscuits made from baking sugar, eggs and coconut milk together in a mould. Sometimes you find them folded into wedges but they are usually rolled up and stored in tins. They are fragrant (you can definitely smell the coconut), light and crunchy and you’ll find them in almost every home during Chinese New Year!

In 1 love letter roll there are approximately 20 calories. 

There was very little information that I could find on the amount of protein, carbs and fat (Sorry!)

Even though these biscuits are light – each of the ingredients is quite energy dense, so if you ate a lot of them… then you’d certainly be feeling the effects after CNY.

I found a very interesting blog from a few years ago that had a great example of portion sizes of Chinese New Year treats and calories. Take a look to find out:  Click here
