Silly snoopy snack bento

I had some haupia left over from a previous project and wanted to use it up. So this is pretty much just the final couple of portions made over into a snack/dessert bento.

 

If you haven't tried haupia yet, I can't recommend it highly enough. It's called a "pudding", but it's more like gelatin. It has a pleasant coconut flavor and light sweetness. It also firms up very quickly and is easily cut with a cookie or veggie cutter. You can tint it, too!

 

I decided to sacrifice some haupia to see how it did for mock-sushi. The verdict: not well. It was too slippery to go where I wanted it to go, and as a result this looks a bit sloppy.

 

Sloppy but delicious.
