Crispy Hina-Arare Cheese Truffles (Girl's Day) - Video Recipe

This is crispy truffles recipe using leftover hina-arare ;)

March 3rd is Hinamatsuri (Japanese Doll Festival or Girls' Day). On this day, we set up hina dolls (hina-ningyo) that are believed to protect girls from bad luck.
Hina dolls recipe is HERE ;)

On Hinamatsuri, we eat colorful rice puffs called hina-arare. They commonly consists of three colors: pink, white, and green: pink represents life, white represents earth, and green represents trees. Those who eat them are believed to drive out their misfortune and disease.

It tastes like crispy cheesecake! Yummy!!!
I recommend you to eat them on the day you made because they wilt after a day. They are still good in that way, though. hehe

Damn… the eyeshadow colors were washed out after the upload…
