Basic Mochi Preparation
Basic Mochi Puffs
Baked Mochi is very easy to prepare. Pre-heat your over or toaster oven to 400 degrees. With a heavy sharp knife, cut a strip across and through your Mochi package about 1" wide (you can also cut a groove across it and break it apart). Cut each strip into four or five pieces.
Spread the pieces well apart on a baking sheet, and bake 8-10 minutes until puffed and browned . The Mochi puffs should be crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Eat them fresh from the oven as is, or slit the puffs open and stuff with your favorite Ingredents.
