  1. I agree with the previous reviewer. I think I'm going to give up on this recipe. Maybe I'm just not good at wrapping it around the ice-cream. It melts too fast and I can't seal the mochi- it won't stick after the ice-cream melts. I had to eat right away but that's too much to eat. I had to throw away the rest. Super messy.
  2. I'm sorry but right now, I can't even give it a rating. I had no idea how long it was supposed to cool. I think my ice cream was to soft and the mochi was to hot. It made a mess and I tried to freeze it anyway, but the mochi was hard as a rock. Maybe I will try this again and wait longer until it was cool, but other wise, this just didn't work for me. Sorry.
  3. This recipe is delicious! I just had mochi earlier today at Bubbie's ice cream (which is reknown in the mochi ice cream world), and this recipe definitely rivals it. I used Splenda, which worked really well, and I added two teaspoons of vanilla to the mix after it had been microwaved for 2 minutes. It helps bring out the vanilla flavor, especially if you use vanilla ice cream! I made mine with vanilla ice cream and a fresh strawberry in the middle, and I highly recommend the combo. One note: The dough is VERY sticky. However, the taste is worth the effort! Enjoy!


my flickr page: Hey there! Thanks for stopping by to look @ my profile :) I'll be 15 on the 11th of September 2006....Ive been using Zaar for quite a while now and I've made tons of friends so far...... I started cooking when I was umm....12 and a half and Ive been in love with it ever since...My first project was the classic batch of brownies. I used a pan that was too big and I got really really flat brownies.....For the frosting I used granulated sugar and had crunchy frosting haha..... Ive gotten much better since then! I tend to get discouraged very easily if something I make does not come out like it was expected to....I can even get depressed over it..... I have plans on going to Le Courdon Bleu Sydney in mid 2008 and completing the Grand Diploma there...... This is my cat Kiara. I found her in the backyard when I was 10, and I started feeding her toast and grape jelly. She's on a normal cat's diet now haha. <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> This is Pluto, and sadly he went missing just before Christmas.... <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> The small pic is when I was 4, and the other is a recent pic :) <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> <img src="" alt="Image hosting by Photobucket"> Lookin a bit mad...hehe
