WATCH: How to Make Pichi-Pichi

These bite-sized rice cakes are delicious!

 

Pichi pichi is a Filipino dessert that is simply made with grated cassava (or cassava flour), sugar, and pandan water. Grated cheese and desiccated coconut add texture, crunch, and layers of flavor. It's great for merienda or as a potluck party contribution!
