Dark Chocolate Truffle Mochi 軟心朱古力麻糬


I do not like to waste food. I remember when I was young, my parents always made me finish every grain of rice in my bowl. They had been through war times and experienced what real hunger is like. It is amazing how one's experience will shape your world view. I think I have inherited this good habit. (But somehow it is hard for my children to pick up this good trait!)

After making numerous snowy mooncakes in the past few weeks, I have some leftover skin in the fridge. I do not want to put it in the trash but I have no more filling to make more mooncakes. So an idea came to me. Why don't I use it to wrap dark chocolate ganache and make truffle mochi! It turns out that my family loves this indulgent snack!




我不喜歡浪費食物,還記得從小父母便用各種方法,要我們食清飯碗裡的每一粒飯,不許浪費。他們在戰亂中成長,物質缺乏,以致養成這節儉之美德,相比之下,我及兒女生長於物質豐盛的世代,實在要加倍努力才可以養成不浪費食物的習慣。

我在中秋節期間做了數不清的冰皮月餅,最後有些少剩下的皮料,為免浪費,便想出一個好主意,用來包入軟心朱古力,便可成為美味的軟心朱古力麻糬了!想不到很受家人歡迎,成為一款美味小食。
