S'mores With Mochi

Don't Like Marshmallows? Then Try This S'mores Variation!

Our partner Foodbeast shares breaking food news, trendsetting recipes, and more with us. Today, Charisma Madarang shows us a whole new way of eating s'mores.

With all the bacon-wrapped, deep-fried hurrah these days, it's easy to pass up on the simple, brilliant ideas. Cue in the s'mochi — an invention by Foodbeast reader Ryan Horikoshi. The clever take on the standard campfire s'more swaps the traditional marshmallow with mochi — a small Japanese rice cake — instead.

We decided to try out the recipe at the Foodbeast Kitchen, opting for vanilla and green tea-flavored mochi ice cream. Using a blowtorch, we were able to quickly toast the sticky rice cake layer on the outside before topping it off with a pad of butter and cinnamon sugar, then sandwiching it between chocolate and graham crackers.

The end result: a phenomenal bite of crunchy, sweet graham and chocolate, then soft, chewy mochi rice cake, and finally a cold burst of sweet ice cream. Lesson learned: it's the simple things in life that make your tastebuds explode.
