Choco-coconut hari-nezumi

Hari-nezumi mochi are a style of wagashi (Japanese sweet) that exists mostly on this blog. I wonder why they are not more popular outside…

hari-nezumi = hedgehog

Lemon hedgehog

Today, this is a daifuku mochi.
The mochi around is made from mochiko, cooked in microwave. Inside, it is anko (azuki bean paste) with cocoa and a little instant coffee. Around coconut shreds.

Making anko (tsubuan and koshian) from the beans. Easy recipe.
