Chocolate Butter Mochi

Butter mochi is a local favorite in Hawaii. It has a soft, chewy texture that is immensley addicting to eat. This confection is a perfect snack or dessert for parties!

This chocolate butter mochi is so easy to make. Just mix everything together in a bowl and pour into a pan! It is best eaten the same day or stored nicely wrapped on the countertop.
