Ube Chews

If you love Twizzlers or Red Vines, you'll enjoy these sweet, purple-colored ube chews.


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ube extract
  • Purple gel food coloring, optional
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup honey


  1. Grease or butter a 9-inch square baking dish and set it aside. Mix together the flour and salt and set aside. Have the extract, measuring spoon and food coloring readily available.
  2. In a large pot fitted with a candy thermometer, heat the butter, sugar, corn syrup, condensed milk and honey over medium-high heat. As the butter melts, slowly stir to combine. Once it's melted and everything is mixed together, do not stir. When it starts to bubble, reduce heat to medium.
  3. Heat the mixture to 240°F, remove from heat, and immediately stir in the flour mixture then the flavoring and food coloring. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Chill for 30 minutes in the fridge, then use kitchen sheers to cut into desired shape. Allow to cool to room temperature. Enjoy!
