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
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.
