Keiki who are looking for something special to do for their dads this weekend need look no further than their own kitchens to create something memorable for Father’s Day. Using Mochi Foods mixes, kids of any culinary skill level can create a magical meal full of crispy, chewy mochi treats. Even though breakfast in bed is usually a Mother’s Day activity, we know a few dads who wouldn’t mind some maple syrup and coffee smells in their room on Sunday morning.
A classic brunch typically includes pancakes or waffles among the other yummy ingredients in a brunch spread (especially bacon), and Mochi Foods offers easy to make mixes for both. Donuts and malasadas also make great breakfast treats if keiki have some help with the frying oil. For the more adventurous and advanced kid chefs, the Banana-Matcha Butter Mochi Cake is a different kind of Father’s Day delight that will be fun to make and even more fun to eat.
Mochi Foods offers a variety of mixes that are available online and in select stores in Hawaii. 8oz retail bags are available at some Safeway, Longs Drugs, KTA, and DQ stores. Larger mix bags (2.2 lb and 4.5 lb) can be found at ChefZone and Sam’s Club (limited stock). For the best selection and guaranteed stock, visit mochifoods.com to shop. Gluten-free mixes are also available, and many of the basic recipes can be modified to be vegan.
