    This works really well with chocolate chip cookies too – you roll the cookie dough around the mochi ball before baking 🙂

    I tried making mochi brownies once but when they came out of the oven the mochi part had puffed up and as it cooled it deflated and the texture was like old gum scraped off the bottom of a bench. 🙁

    My only thought for what I did wrong was maybe it was because I let the mochi cool too much before portioning and baking it so I wouldn’t incinerate my fingers?

    I love this. i just discovered butter mochi cake from hawaii…is it possible to a 3rd hybrid like a chocolate butter mochi cake?

    Brownie looks too crumbly, more like chocolate cake…and mochi on the other side looks very firm…nice idea with a lot of space for improvement:)

    I though this was going to be a chocolate variation of Hawaiian Butter Mochi Cake

    Just a word of advice…never crack an egg into the main bowl. Always use a separate dish just in case of shell pieces breaking with the egg. You can remove the shell piece easier.
