Wrap some rice in plastic wrap and mold the rice into the shape. (Fill the rice with your preferred filling during this step! ) Make the face a little round.
Lightly shape a bit of rice into a ball and use chopsticks or skewers to slice it in half to make the ears.
Attach the mouth and eyes and it's finished! It's kind of like something I've seen in a magazine.
The moisture of the rice may seep into the side dishes, so when it's hot outside, be sure to place you Miffy into a cup or create some kind of barrier between the rice and the food!
Story Behind this Recipe
For some reason, my kids have really been into the caharacter Miffy lately, so I made this simple recipe without many ingredients.
I was running out of rice when I made the ears, so underneath them I hid some food to adjust their height. The eyes are made from 2 rounded long cuts of nori while the mouth is made from long, thin cuts. Please adjust the size and shape while making them.
