Mochi Brownies

For a delicious brownie recipe with a twist, this Mochi Brownie recipe from justJENN is awesome! The best part was most of the ingredients are staples found in the kitchen with the exception of a few gems you’ll have to venture out for like the Mochiko sweet rice flour and evaporated milk.

I was pretty excited for another chance to make a sweet treat with Mochiko again after I made the Blueberry Mochi Cake that I still get requests for!

Start of with:

  • 1 cup mochiko (sweet rice flour)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

With the stickiness of mochi, parchment paper is your best friend. For extra ease of serving and clean up – butter the parchment paper and fit it to a square 8×8 pan.

Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Melt the 4 Tbls of butter + 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (save the other half for later) on slow heat- keep stirring so you don’t burn the chocolate. Just has it’s all smooth and melted, remove from heat and set aside.

In a bowl mix the dry ingredients together: mochiko, sugar, baking soda and salt.

*I actually only added 1/2 cup of sugar to reduce the sweetness and make it ever-so-slightly healthier. I think the chocolate will be plenty sweet enough.

Slowly pour in the warm chocolate mixture into the dry ingredient bowl, then mix in the evaporated milk, vanilla, and egg. Add the egg at the end so the mixture has a real chance to cool from the milk or else the heat might cook the egg.

The brownies came out wonderfully moist and with the mochi- extra chewy! The texture is definitely not the usual “cakey” or fudgey brownies. And I was right, the brownies were sweet but not too sweet with the perfect amount of chocolatey goodness- no real need for that extra 1/2 cup of sugar.
