moshi moshi mochi

I’ve been craving for japanese ice cream mochi, the ones with so many flavors with different colors. It’s a mini bite size ice cream mochi, and its chewy+sweet…(ahh,..*drools*) the next thing you know, you can never stop eating it till you finish the whole pack (yeppppp….that happened to me for a couple of timeesss). The last time i ate it, was like two years ago at the States (i bought it at Costco, i usually buy the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla flavors)…and now i’ve been looking for it in Jakarta. Sigh……so far..no luck. So if you guys haven’t try this before..you should put it in your “must eat list”… ๐Ÿ™‚

You can find this brand at Costco..or any other place in the States basically…….I wish some business company here in Jakarta can import this good stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

So anywhooo…since i can’t find any ice cream mochi in jakarta,..i thought making your own mochi would be fun. Below here is the ice cream mochi recipe adapted from japaneseicecream.blogspot.com :

Sugar 100g
Water 100ml

Cornstarch as needed

This is how your mochi ice cream should look, Strawberry and Green Tea Mochi. It’s best to eat these when they’re slightly thawed, or else it’s like biting into a little ball of rock and we all know that would be no fun:)
