Ais kacang or ABC (Air Batu Campur) is a refreshing dessert / snack in Malayisa.  A medley of sweet red beans, crunchy peanuts, creamy corn, wiggly grass jelly and chewy palm seed topped with shaved snow-cone ice and coconut milk.  This is definitely something to reach for on a hot day and everyday is hot in Malaysia!
