Steps

1. Start by making the shape of the white heart. Take some rice and wrap it in cling film. Firmly squeeze it into a ball.
2. Flatten the ball a little and press down on the top part from front to back with one finger.
3. Pinch the lower half. After doing this a few times it will form into the shape of a heart.
4. Next, take a very small amount of white rice and wrap it in cling film. Firmly squeeze it into a ball.
5. Loosen the wrap and flatten it a little. Place it on the counter and follow Steps 2 to 3 to make it into the shape of a heart.
6. Next, make the pink heart. Mix the furikake into the rice. If you add a little water with a wooden spoon, it becomes easier to mix.
7. Follow Steps 1 to 5 to make the pink hearts in the same way as the white, both large and small.
8. Once the two types and two shapes of heart are finished, remove the cling film. Place the differently colored hearts on top of each other and wrap in cling film once again. Gently press the small hearts on.
9. They're finished. It's fine to leave them wrapped in the cling film or to take the cling film off and put them into the bento box.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this to use up the large amount of pink decorative furikake I had left over.
