Only Easy: Chocolate Mochi

By Misty I

August 26, 2020

I recently embarked on a no spend food challenge. It forced me to use what I had in my refrigerator, pantry, and freezer. The real reason behind this was to simply become more disciplined with my monthly food budget and save money.

The first thing I did during the challenge was update my refrigerator, freezer and pantry inventory to see what I had on hand. Although I was primarily concerned with meals, I did find some ingredients to make chocolate mochi in the pantry. This is a great dessert to take to a potluck when we can have get-togethers again.

Chocolate Mochi


  • 2 C. Mochiko (from 16 oz. box)
  • 1 ¾ C. sugar
  • 3 T. Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 T. baking soda
  • 1 (12oz.) can coconut milk (didn’t use all of my 13.5 oz. can)
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • ¼ C. melted butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sift the mochiko, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl mix the remaining ingredients.
  • Pour wet ingredients into sifted dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Pour into a greased 9×13 pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

That’s it, only easy!
