A few weeks ago, I discovered my new favorite dessert - mochi ice cream. Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made out of pounded rice. In these little treats, there is ice cream stuffed inside of the little mochi balls. It's sticky and sweet and extremely delicious.
The pictures above were taken at Mikawaya in Little Tokyo - but you can get the same mochi ice cream (made by the same company!) at your local Trader Joe's. My favorite is strawberry :)
