Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to use up leftover rice cakes from New Years, so I decided to recreate my favorite Tirol chocolates and it was delicious.
Slice the mochi rice cakes as thinly as possible so they cook all the way through. The bread is crispy, yet fluffy, and the mochi rice cakes are chewy. I want to try again with the delicious Tirol chocolate version! It's also delicious with kinako cream on top!
