If you like Mochi, you’ll love this dish. If you’ve never heard of Mochi, then this is a great way to introduce yourself to this Asian delicacy!

Mochi is a sweet, glutinous rice with high starch content used in Japanese cooking. It has a unique texture that reminds me of the “bubbles” in bubble tea.

To get started with this simple recipe, mix the mochiko and sugar in a bowl. Then add water and mix it thoroughly.

It will be very hot at this point, so before you try to roll it, let the mixture cool. (If you’re in a hurry, it’s okay to put the mixture in the freezer to help it cool faster.)

If you want to serve colored mochi, add food coloring to the water. We used red and blue. To cook the mixture, put in a covered microwavable dish and microwave for 4 minutes.

Now it’s time to get creative and get your origami on! Roll the mixture out flat, cut it into squares, then add ice cream (or chocolate) to the center of the small squares. Finally, pinch the mochi together around the edges and put it back in the freezer until you are ready to serve.

It’s as fun to make as it is to eat. Well, almost!
