Prepare the ingredients. Mix the ● ingredients together. #Use rounded tablespoons of kinako.
Line your plate with plastic wrap. Place the mochi on top and pour 2 tablespoons of water over them.
Microwave for about 1 minute 10 seconds at 600 W. Turn the mochi over and heat for another 10-20 seconds.
Throw away half of the water left on the plate, and coat the mochi in the mixture from Step 1. I recommend sprinkling on even more of the mixture on top. You can also add water at this stage.
This is what it looks like when it's finished.
Just throw away the plastic wrap after eating. This way, you won't need to do much washing. Cleaning up is a piece of cake.
Story Behind this Recipe
I bought kinako because I wanted to eat something sweet. I used an idea from Recipe ID: 1636947, which is a hot drink made with hot milk, cocoa and coffee. I thought I would add kinako to it and make a snack.
You don't need to wrap the mochi in nori seaweed, and you only need 1 plate. This is so easy. Now I can even eat mochi for breakfast.
The mochi won't stick to the plate if you use plastic wrap, so it'll save you from all that clean up time.
