Japanese Mochi Ice Cream (Ice Cream inside Rice Cake)

Mochi Ice Cream is a very popular Japanese sweet, even the American grocery store Trader Joe's sells this sweet. The recipe here is introduced by Cooking with Dog, a well-known Youtube Japanese Cooking Show. Mochi (Rice cake) is very sticky and difficult to handle, so don't feel bad if this is your first time. (It is still hard for me!!) Of course, if you don't want ice-cream, you can use other fillings or even eat it plain.

See below video for Mochi Ice Cream recipe! 
(The Dog is supposedly the host of the show! How cute!)
