■Ingredients (to make seven pieces)


・Mujirushi Ryohin

・Jibunde Tsukuru Sweet Potato Mix – one bag (140g)

・Milk    140~150g

・Unsalted butter 50g

・Cocoa powder  half of a tea spoon

・Egg yolk one

・Water one tea spoon ※mix it with egg yolk in advance

■How to make

②Put Sweet Potato Mix, milk, butter into the ball and mix them together.

(Put the butter in a heat-resistent container. Cover the container with cellophane wrap and heat it up in a microwave for 30〜40 seconds)



③Mix them with a spatula until it gets hard as shown in the picture above.


④First, make the face.

Each piece should be 30g. Roll it like a rice ball to make the surface smooth and shape it to a trapezoid-shape.


⑤Next, make the ears

Each piece should be 3g. Roll them and shape them into a water drop-shape.


⑥Make the hat.

The cloth should be 21g. Color it with cocoa powder. Roll each piece (3g) and shape them to dome shapes. Put the ear and hat on the face.


⑦After Purin-chan’s form is completed, coat it with egg yolk mixed with water so as to make the surface smooth. Use your fingers when coating it.

When coating it with egg yolk, put egg yolk on the location where the arrow indicates so that the pieces will not come off when it is baked.



⑧First, bake it for 5 minutes in the oven (180 degrees) and continue to bake it for another 5 minutes or until it is brown.(Watch it carefully in order to prevent it from burning.)

It will be completed when it looks like the piece shown in the picture.


⑨Write the face

☆Write the nose with melted chocolate using the flat side of a toothpick.

☆The nose of Purin-chan is shaped like a flipped triangle. Like this → ▽

☆Next, draw the eyes and mouth using a toothpick.

Use the pointed side of the toothpick when drawing the mouth. (Draw these parts carefully so that you do not rip the dough.)

☆Finally, to fix the hat on the head, use a fried pasta so that hat will be stabilized.(Check the last article for instructions about the pasta.)

Coat the hat with chocolate.
