Purple Yam Mochi Balls - pigoutyvr

A few weeks ago, I made the Cheese Mochi Balls, and I decided to go for a sweet version – Purple Yam Mochi Balls. If you have any leftover purple yam, you can make this delicious and beautiful kid-friendly treat in no time. Mr. enjoyed the sweet version way more that he finished the entire batch almost right away.
