Are you looking for an alternative to campfire s’mores? Here’s something that I think is even better than s’mores, and it also happens to be dairy-free, gluten-free, corn-free! Mochi is sweet rice that has been pounded and dried into shapes and it is originally from Japan! You can stuff them with anything you want – and I’m trying them with some quinoa dark chocolate, peanut butter, and jam! I think this is my new favorite campfire treat 😀
Here is the brand of organic mochi we used in the video. We found it at our local natural grocery store. http://www.grainaissance.com/mochi
For those of you who are curious – I went on an elimination diet since my sister was doing it to see what was causing her stomach aches. I wanted to support her, but I also wanted to see how it would make me feel. I didn’t eat corn, soy, dairy, gluten, peanuts, sugar, or eggs for awhile, and then reintroduced them into my diet one by one. It was hard, but I felt great and my acne totally went away! Turns out dairy and corn make me break out! So now I really try to avoid dairy and corn. It’s amazing how much your food affects your body and mood.
Anyway, thank you for watching!

- Dried Mochi, cut into squares (We cut ours into about 2"x2" squares. Some come already cut.)
- Nut butter
- High quality dark chocolate
- Place several mochi in a grill basket or on a grate over the campfire.
- Roast the mochi, taking care not to burn it, until it's crispy on the outside, and gooey on the inside.
- Carefully cut open the mochi, and stuff with your favorite toppings.
- Let your stuffing heat up and melt. This also lets the mochi cool a bit so you can pick it up to eat it.
- Eat it and enjoy!
