First look, it reminded me of buchi, a glutinous rice filled with custard or red bean paste, and coated in sesame seed. Well, the idea is pretty much the same but this one is made with purple and velvety sweet potato and filled with cheddar cheese, rolled in a sesame seeds.
An order comes with a dozen Camote Cheeseballs which I would say can fill up 2 persons during snack time. A bite initially hints a soft and smooth taste of mashed camote, then a milky kick with a tinge of salt from the cheese, and ends with a contrasting nutty taste and crunch from the sesame seeds. It’s surprisingly very addicting.
Camote, or sweet potato, is a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. It promotes gut health with its fiber and antioxidants. With this said, it’s fair to say that camote cheeeballs is a wholesome treat! 😉
I enjoyed it with a cup of freshly brewed coffee! But pretty sure it’ll go well with your preferred beverage! Camote cheeseball is indeed a very fun and delightful snack one should try.
