Cooking time: 20 minutes

“Grillus Kitchen” that delivers recipes using Grilus cricket ingredients
This time, we will introduce the "Sanshoku Choco Puff", a confectionery inspired by the three colors of hishimochi!

Hishimochi is an offering to Hina dolls displayed at the Hinamatsuri.
Hina dolls are decorated so that girls can take over misfortunes as scapegoats.
It is said that this expression of gratitude for Hina dolls led to the display of hishimochi.

It is also said that when girls eat hishimochi during the Hinamatsuri, they pray for good health and the prosperity of their descendants.
This time, we have created sweets that are particular about three colors so that you can enjoy the atmosphere of the Doll's Festival.
