Don’t let your dessert course suffer because you’ve run out of time to prepare it. The Lazy Hostess fully endorses serving pre-made sweets as long as they are high quality and beautifully presented. Bubbies, a Hawaiian company that has been making gourmet ice cream for a quarter of a century, has an incredible assortment of mochi, creamy ice cream that has been wrapped in a sweetened rice confection.
The bite-sized morsels come in 20 different flavors including Asian inspired Lychee and Green Tea as well as more traditional choices like Chocolate Mint and Pistachio. Serve three different flavored mochi balls per dessert plate with a sprig of mint and you have a delicious, pretty dessert in a snap! It’s a perfect way to serve ice cream on warm summer nights without the mess of a melting scoop.
Buy locally at a specialty grocer or order direct from Bubbies web site. Three boxes (24 pieces) of your choice of flavors can be shipped to you Monday-Thursday for $62 plus shipping.
