Hawaii Mom Blog: Bake you a Smile

Bake you a Smile

We had no plans for Labor Day, so when I saw that Baked you a Smile was having a pop up sale on Labor Day, I just had to seize this opportunity to make it out to their commercial kitchen in Waipio behind Costco. I arrived about 20 minutes before they were scheduled to open, and there was already a line of customers waiting at the door.  By the time the sale started, the line was more than twice as long as when I first got there.

Baked you a Smile specializes in stuffed chi chi dango, assorted flavors of butter mochi, Kulolo mochi rice w/hot Haupia and mochi balls, Sweet Rolls w/hot Haupia and mochi balls, and all things mochi. They are at the Kamakana Alii Farmers Market every Wednesday afternoon, and select afternoons outside of their commercial kitchen in Waipio. They also pop up at Nordstroms every once in a while. 

Today I bought three different flavors of chi chi dango filled mochi - azuki bean w/honey, peanut butter, and kulolo. 

These mochi pieces are large and generously stuffed with filling. They use chunky peanut butter, which is my fave!

If you like kulolo (Hawaiian dessert made with mashed taro and coconut milk), you'll want to try the kulolo chi chi dango.  

I also tried the Sweet Rolls w/hot Haupia sauce and mochi balls. The owner suggested that I refrigerate these and eat them the next day, but I couldn't wait, so warmed one up in the microwave for dessert later that evening, and it was amazing! 

I'm thinking of adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream when I eat the remaining rolls tonight!
