Chocolate Truffle Mochi
Aloha mai kakou!
This is my first tutorial and I hope someone can take something away from it. This is part of my Chaobefore30 before 30 goals...to post a tutorial. I made these simple snacks to give to my coworkers and family for xmas and everyone seems to love them.
I hope this helps, I've included tons of pictures because I love tutorials with lots of pictures because I get confused easily and panic when I'm not sure what things are supposed to look like.
Let me know how they turn out!
xoxo...u`i

    It will come out an amorphous blob, that?s fine. It would be a lot easier if there was a microwave safe bundt pan, but pyrex will do fine.
    Make sure you put the blob on the potato starch so it will not stick and cover the mochi with the starch so it will not form "crust."
    CAUTION: VERY HOT!!!
