Mochi Brownies

Sometimes when I’m trying to figure out what to make, I will aimlessly wander from the refrigerator to the pantry, hoping something magically appears. This time around, I just started grabbing things, knowing I was short on time and needed to do something for Valentine’s Day.

When I think Valentine’s Day, chocolate always comes to mind but chocolate truffles or chocolate cake balls require too much time. I wanted something easy and different. On the outside, these brownies look like any other brownie. But once you bite into it, you will be surprised by the texture. These mochi brownies have a crispy, cracked outer layer but chewy inside dotted with melted chocolate. Everything about it is confusing, but a wonderful way.

Still trying to figure out what to get your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day? Or just looking to change up your brownie recipe? Give these mochi brownies a go.


1 cup of water
4 tbsp of cocoa powder
3 ½ tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
2 ¼ cups of sweet rice
1 ½ cups of sugar
½ tsp of baking soda
a pinch of salt
2 large
a splash or two of extract
½ cup of chocolate chips


1. Combine water, butter, vegetable oil and cocoa powder a small pot over medium heat. If necessary, whisk to make sure the cocoa powder is dissolved completely. Remove the cocoa mix from the heat and set aside.

2. a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients (sweet rice flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda). Pour in the cocoa mix, stir to combine.

3. Add the eggs, extract and chocolate chips. Stir to make sure everything incorporated evenly

4. Pour the mochi brownie batter into a parchment lined 9×9 pan.

7. Cut into sizes of your choice and enjoy!

    Dang it! Got everything except the chocolate chips. Is there anything to
    replace it since I’m a little lazy to go to the store for one thing lol but
    won’t it be good to add in more things like coconut flakes, nuts and such?
    And is the texture kind of chewy like the Mochi?
