HALLOWEEN ONIGIRI

Add a touch of spookiness to your Onigiri rice ball. Get a ghost onigiri rice ball mold and fill the mold with a scoop of flavored rice and yummy ingredients. Then cut out facial features from dried seaweed with seaweed puncher and put the cutouts on the ghost-shaped rice ball however you would like to make it spooktacular! It’s super easy to make.
