Thailand’s Sweet Tooth: Decadent Desserts

Thais have a sweet tooth and a heavy hand with sugar in much of their cuisine but especially, as in any culture, in desserts and candies.

Following on from my post Thai Street Food: Tasting a Kingdom Stall By Stall here are a few popular Thai desserts.

Sadly, I don’t yet have a photo of my personal favorite, mango with sticky rice slathered in coconut milk and sprinkled with sesame seeds. It’s always gone before my camera comes out!
