New Year Mochi

This is what a bag of Mochi looks like if you buy it in the store. When Mochi is hot it is very soft and chewy. People like to eat it during the holidays.

Take the mochi blocks out of the bag and place them on a baking sheet. Put a little butter underneath each block and also on top.

Then put them in the oven. 250 degrees for about 12 minutes. (give or take)

The blocks should loose their shape and get really soft and puffy. Keep them in the oven until they look like this.

By itself Mochi has a very plain taste so after it’s been heated you will want to add some flavor to it. My son likes to add cinnamon and sugar to his.

I like soy sauce on mine.

100_2524It is very chewy and fun to eat if you have teeth. There are warnings however about young children eating it. Mochi should not be given to small children or elderly who have no teeth because they might choke.

But if you have teeth and you’re not too young, Mochi is a great holiday treat.

Mochi is made from rice so I consider it a healthy carbohydrate.

    Mmm, I love mochi! I usually eat it with kinako/sugar but cinammon/sugar sounds good too. I’ll have to try that next time.
