    V'nut-Beyond Redemption's Note:

    I can't remember exactly where I got this from (the web) and have not tried it ... yet but you can see this usually being sold during cultural activities or exhibitions. They are not cheap to buy. The 30 - 45 mins time given is a guide.

      There is an easy way to do it without trouble. In Asia, we use ready made Maltose sugar candy to make Dragon Beard Candy. You can get that in any Chinese supermarket, like 99 Ranch Market. It is cheap, and can be eaten as it is.
