Moonpillows Mochi Truffles
Before we even took our first nibbles of Moonpillows, we were charmed by the whimsical name of this line of mochi truffles. The moniker proved to be accurate, though, as these plump full moons are soft to the touch due to their delicate outer coating made from mochi—a gummy rice paste often found in Japanese desserts. Unlike the more commonly found confection, mochi ice cream, Moonpillows truffles contain a nugget of ganache, and its creaminess provides an interesting complement to the unique texture of the mochi.
Moonpillows mochi truffles are handmade in small batches and come in an assortment of flavors such as passion fruit, chocolate-cherry, strawberry-white balsamic, key lime, French roast, matcha and more. Although they’re individually wrapped, these confections should be enjoyed immediately in order to get the most out of the soft, chewy experience. This Southern California company will ship boxes of twelve, six and three truffles around the country, and Angelenos can find them on Sundays at the Brentwood Certified Farmers’ Market.
Price: $23 for a box of twelve, $12 for a box of six, $6 for a box of three.
