You can DIY the Chinese New Year snacks and goodies yourself if you want to. There are tons of recipes and how-to videos online, and who knows, maybe one day, I'll be buying them from you! After watching some 9 recipes of how to make these stuff, I've got a new found appreciation for those who slave it all out in the kitchen just to make everyone happy. Thank you so much. Check them out below:

1. Pineapple tarts

2. Bak Kwa

I can't imagine the stress and work for this.

3. Roasted Salted Cashews

4. Love Letters

5. Fried Mini Shrimp Rolls

6. Fried Nian Gao..balls

7. "Jai", or vegetarian

Technically, this isn't a snack or a goodie, but rather a dish that's only made during this time of the year.

8. Ba Chang

9. Peanut Cookies
