Pumpkin Mochi Squares

Pumpkin Mochi Squares

This Hawaiian Fall dessert is a take on the classic Mochi recipe, but with Pumpkin! 

Mochi is a Japanese dessert cake made with a sweet rice flour. A favorite in Hawaii, we especially love it because it is super easy to make and mildly sweet!  We're not kidding when we say we drive to our local Mochi spot on a regular basis and finish the box before we make it home. 😆
