Cocoa Butter Mochi

Cocoa Butter Mochi created by Engrossed

If you've had mochi before, this is not like the mochi you normally eat at New Years; it has a rich, slightly sweet, chocolate flavor. The mochiko powder can probably be found in the oriental section of your grocery store. A secretary in my office made this recipe; she got the recipe from one of those recipe cards you can get at the grocers. For the cocoa, the recipe says you can use Nestles ... I use Ghiradelli,

    when you say two cups mochiko, are you saying dry cups or liquid measurement. Makes a difference as liquid measures more than dry. I made mochi with 2 cups dry and the mochi appeared not to have enough batter. The mochiko box states 16 oz . 8 oz is is one cup in liquid measurements. please advice

    I made quite a bit of changes. First, I halved the recipe but used half a box of Mojiko sweet rice flour (8 oz, not 1 cup). I scaled most ingredients down in half, except that I used 3 tbsp cocoa for more chocolate flavor and only 1 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I added 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream to thin the mixture out a bit. I used 3/4 cups sugar plus 1 tbsp. I beat the mixture using a whisk for about 5 mins, may be that's why it's a little chewier than the butter moji I made from another recipe here. There's a mild coconut flavor from the coconut milk, which I might sub with milk/half-half/cream next time if I don't want coconut flavor.

    Easy to make! I used a good quality cocoa and it tasted like a spongy chocolate brownie, delicious! This is a keeper since "anything" mochi is a favorite in my family. I followed the recipe exacty using good cocoa, I wouldn't use Nestle Quick.

    This is a really good dessert! I especially like the chewy texture of the mochi squares. Even though these look like brownies, they're pretty different (in a good way). I might add a little more cocoa next time, but they're good as written, too. Thanks for posting such an interesting, unique recipe! I'm sure I'll make it again.
