Strawberry chocolate daifukumochi
August 10, 2010
My son just came home from Tokyo bearing daifukumochi, Japanese sweets typically made from glutinous rice cake and red bean paste.
They are delicious!
Last year he brought me green tea flavor. This year's treat was strawberry chocolate.
I'm used to buying daifukumochi in the Asian markets, but they really aren't the same quality.
There's just a little something missing, texturally and flavor-wise.
These little bites are sublime, soft and slightly chewy, with the sweet tang of strawberry tempered by a tiny but rich dark chocolate drop. Amazing!
