MORE Chocolate
The Chocolate Hills got us thinking about chocolate recipes. For today's dessert, we want to try a Chocolate moron. A moron is a smoother variety of suman that is made of ground rice cooked in coconut milk. Moron is either plain or mixed with chocolate. This fun sweet has such a unique texture, a great alternative to cake or cookies!


  • 1/2 cup malagkit (glutinous) rice

  • 1-1/2 cup ordinary rice

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk

  • 1-1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup chocolate

  • banana leaves - wilted over fire

  • melted butter


  1. Soak over night the malagkit and ordinary rice. Grind the following day.

  2. Soak both ground rice in coconut milk until soft. Add sugar and the chocolate.

  3. Cook over low fire, constantly stirring until thick. Set aside and cool.

  4. Prepare the leaves for wrapping by heating by over low fire. Brush the leaves with butter.

  5. Put 2 tbsp. of the mixture in every wrap. Tie with string. Repeat until all are wrapped.

  6. Cook/steam for half an hour in a double boiler container or a steamer.

  7. Let cool, then eat!
