What chocolate is best?

Unsweetened cacao powder and semi-sweet chocolate chips are the best types of chocolate to use. You do not want to use sweetened cocoa powder that is that often used to make chocolate milk as this may be too sweet. Same concept when using milk chocolate chips.

Can I substitute whole milk?

You sure can. If you want a lighter taste use 2%, 1%, or skim. You can also opt to use a dairy free milk of your choice.

Is this recipe gluten free?

Mochiko flour is naturally gluten free and so is this recipe.

How to store chocolate butter mochi?

Once cooled place in an airtight container and store at room temperature for 1 to 2 days.

You can refrigerate, but this may cause the mochi to dry out and harden.
