Baked mochi is a staple here in the islands. Some with Filipino roots, some with Japanese roots, always a little bit different. Always the first dessert ....gone .... It was at a fundraiser bake sale that I first tried this recipe and had to ask for the recipe.
I had never had it with a chocolate flavor before. The cook already had it written down on recipe cards for the asking.
