Tired of just selling brownies and cookies?  Missing snacks from your home in Hawaii?  Want try a new recipe for dessert?

Attending college at a school on the east coast was a major transition from my comfort haven in Honolulu, Hawaii. While there are absolutely many things I miss from home, I think the food I miss the most is butter mochi.

Butter mochi is similar to a blondie except it has a much more chewy texture, and it's made with a rice flour called mochiko.
