Sapin-Sapin refers to a Filipino rice sweet of blanc-mange consistency, made of several layers, usually of different colors. It is also described as a three-layered tricolor Filipino sweets made with rice flour (galapong ), purple yam and coconut milk. It is served as a dessert or sweet snacks.

The basic ingredients in making Sapin-Sapin are: rice flour (galapong), coconut milk, sugar and sometimes condensed milk.

My favorite Sapin-Sapin is the one coming from Malabon. I have forgotten the name of the producer, but when I came home to the Philippines for Christmas 2008, I received Sapin-Sapin as a gift. I will never get tired eating this special delicacy from my home country!
