riverli, my mother makes something like this for Chinese New Years. She makes hers pink and fills it with a yellow bean paste and the syrup is sweet with a hint of ginger. All topped with sprinkle of seasame seeds. Yummy stuff!

Ingredients

2 cups glutinous rice flour, plus more for dusting1/2 cup boiling water
the filling mixed these below
3 Tbsps. finely chopped roasted peanuts4tbsps sugar1/2 cup roasted sesame seedsInstructions

1. Make wrappers: Place glutinous rice flour in a bowl. Add boiling water, stirring with chopsticks or a fork, until dough is evenly moistened. Knead dough into large ball. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. 2. Combine filling ingredients in a bowl; mix well. 3. Shape each dumpling: On a board lightly dusted with rice flour, knead dough until smooth. Roll dough into a cylinder; cut crosswise to make 14 pieces. Cover dough to prevent drying. With flour dusted hands, make a hole in center of apiece of dough; place about 1 tablespoon of filling in hole and pinch edges to seal and shape into balls. Cover while shaping remaining dumplings. 4. put the sweet soup balls into water heat the oven till the water boiling for about 2-3 minute and the ball floating ,then you can taste the ball.
if you add some other ingredient into the glutinous rice flour ,the balls will be colors.

this is the ball recipel. have some cooked them?if you cook some ,remember to tell me how do you think them, if you don't have time to do them ,you can buy them easily in chinese supermarket ,we call them 汤圆.

I've never seen anything like this. I guess I've been going to wrong restaurants.

hmmm those sound a lot like Longevity Peach buns, but the buns aren't in a syrup. They are delicious, though!
