"Originating in Japan, mochi are rice “cakes” traditionally filled with a sweetened bean paste. In the case of mochi ice cream (invented by Japanese-American business woman, Frances Hashimoto) the rice cake is instead filled with ice cream. In the homemade version, you can use any ice cream you like. The chewy, rice cake coating here is thinner than the classic mochi and a nice, light summer treat."
