Mochi + Christmas

December 19, 2014

My love for mochi has gone back as far as two decades ago. But I only just discovered baking with it in my own kitchen. I knew I had to find a way to incorporate mochi into my holiday baking madness.
I made a test run of these since I plan on making them for the family on Christmas Day. My friends all seemed quite pleased with them and I hope the family is too!
