Chocolate Butter Mochi



Butter mochi is an easy and yummy dessert that originated in Hawaii. But did you know you can make a chocolate version? Who doesn't love chocolate? (Actually I know someone who absolutely abhors it but he is definitely in the minority.). Resembling a moist brownie, Chocolate Butter Mochi has the satisfying chew of the original enhanced with deep chocolate flavor.

What is Chocolate Butter Mochi

At first sight, it would be easy to mistake this mochi for brownies. Anyone expecting a rich, fudgy brownie would be disappointed. Not being familiar with gluten-free baked goods, I suppose this could be considered a gluten-free brownie because of the use of rice flour instead of wheat flour. However, I will always identify the distinctive chew as mochi - just with a chocolate twist.

Double chocolate

The chocolate comes in two forms. The first is cocoa powder mixed into the batter. The second is chocolate chips melted in with the butter. That's all that's needed to give the mochi its deep chocolate flavor.

The mochi is usually served in paper cupcake liners (we love our cupcake liners in Hawaii). It's easy to take to a potluck or family gathering and it will be gone sooner than you think.
