Hello Kitty Snowskin Mooncakes with Chocolates ( 巧克力冰皮月饼 )

adorable hello kitty snowskin mooncakes with chocolate truffles
Uncover delicious Chocolate Truffles within these decadent Adorable Hello Kitty Snowskin Mooncakes! When my “partner-in-crime” bought the Hello Kitty Mooncake Mould for me, I couldn’t resist but to start my 1st mooncake-making project last year.

Crazy ideas formed, and the two of us came up with all sorts of flavours and made about 250 Snowskin Mooncakes in just 2 days! We used tea like Matcha and Earl Grey, liqueurs such as Baileys and Grand Marnier, and also Fresh Fruits for the colours instead of food colourings. The response we got was overwhelming!

ikitchen less sugar black sesame lotus paste mooncake
Over at Phoon Huat baking shop, we bought different types of mooncake pastes like Black Sesame ( 黑芝麻 ), White Lotus ( 白莲 ), Green Tea ( 绿茶 ), Dragon Fruit ( 火龍果 ) etc. Coincidentally, I received some premium chocolate truffles so I suggested using them for our Snowskin Mooncakes.

The outcome was so cute, but I only had handful of these Hello Kitty Snowskin Mooncakes with Chocolates ( 巧克力冰皮月饼 ). So I gave my mooncake-making partner 3, kept 1 to make a special mooncake for my hubby, 1 for my prince, and gave away the rest by slotting the gemstone into some of the mooncakes that were going out to my good friends.
