Top Quality Yukimi Daifuku (Mochi Filled with Ice Cream)

I made these luxurious Yukimi Daifuku (mochi dumplings filled with ice cream) with the habutae mochi (mochi from Fukui prefecture) I got as a gift! Use high-quality ice cream to make them ten times tastier than Yukimi Daifuku.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Habutae mochi (steamed mochi mixed with sugar and syrup)
2
Vanilla ice cream
as needed

Steps

1. Stretch out a piece of habutae mochi with your hands, then place a scoop of ice cream on top.
2. Stretch out one more piece of the mochi and sandwich the ice cream with it.

Story Behind this Recipe

I received some habutae mochi and usually I get sick of these after eating 2 or 3, so I came up with a different way to eat them.
Even though they're simple to make, they make a special treat.
