One Piece Nerikiri (Rice Dough & Sweet Bean Paste) Snacks

I made these character nerikiri treats for Youtube Entertainment's [Jump Food] Creation Challenge.

Ingredients

White nerikiri
120 g
Cinnamon nerikiri (light brown color)
60 g
Cinnamon nerikiri (dark brown color)
10 g
Blue nerikiri
10 g
Pink nerikiri
20 g
Black sesame nerikiri
10 g
Red nerikiri
5 g

Steps

1. The cinnamon nerikiri and black sesame nerikiri are white nerikiri mixed with black sesame paste and cinnamon powder.
2. Color with pink, blue, and red food coloring (I use natural food coloring).
3. You will be making three characters this time around, so separate the nerikiri to be used for each character into portions according to the character.
4. Use the light brown nerikiri to make Chopper's face and Luffy's hat. Use 10 g of the dark brown nerikiri to make Chopper's and Merry's horns.
5. Use the blue nerikiri to make Chopper's hat and nose. Use 50 g of the white nerikiri to make the base for Merry.
6. Use 50 g of the white nerikiri to make Luffy's face, ears, and nose. Use the pink nerikiri to make Chopper's hat and Luffy's mouth.
7. Use 20 g of the white nerikiri to make Luffy's teeth, the whites of Chopper's eyes, and Chopper's X mark.
8. Use 10 g of the black nerikiri to make Luffy's hair, eyes, and nose, along with Chopper and Merry's eyes and noses. Use the remaining red to make the ribbon on Luffy's hat.
9. Fix the upper nerikiri parts together on top of a paper towel, and they are done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I already had been making characters out of nerikiri, so I decided to challenge myself to make One Piece characters this time.
