Chocolate Mixed Nuts Mooncake (Baked)

Yeap, my first attempt on this mixed nuts mooncake recipe! It's my mom special order....errr... it's actually last year order but I don't have the time to put my hands on this. So, here it is! Well, my mom always complaining that the store bought mixed nuts mooncake is way too sweet for her. She wanted something light and not so sweet. So, I decided to give her another surprise by making her this chocolate flavour mooncake which is completely different from what she used to eat. Hopefully, she will love it!

And here's the recipe.

Ingredients for Mixed Nuts filling :
100gm whole almond, chopped & roasted
100gm walnuts, chopped & roasted
50gm whole hazelnut, roasted
50gm pistachio, roasted
1/2 cup dried cranberry
1/2 cup candied kumquat, chopped
50gm candied melon, chopped
1 cup mixed seeds, roasted
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tpsn salt
200gm cooked glutinous rice (koh fun)/wholemeal bran oat
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp rum
1 tbsp rose water/wine
Method :
- combine all ingredients in a big bowl and mix well.
- then stir in 4 tbsp corn/olive oil and mix till well combined.
- divide into 40gm ball each for mini size mooncake.

Ingredients for Chocolate Skin Dough :
350gm all purpose flour
350gm chocolate, chopped
105gm corn oil
Method :
- simmer chocolate and oil over a double boiler untill melted.
- stir chocolate mixture into flour and mix to form a thick paste.
- leave the thick paste to rest for an hour.
- then divide pastry dough into 35gm each (for mini size) .
- start wrapping the mixed nuts filling with the dough and slightly coat the dough with flour.
- arrange moulded mooncake onto baking tray and spray water onto each of it
- bake at 200'c for 5 mins and then remove mooncake from oven.
- slightly brush with egg glaze and continue baking at 180'c for another 10 mins or untill golden brown.
* It's best to serve this one day after.
This skin texture is unlike the traditional kinda of syrup dough skin. It isn't sweet at all. In fact, it tastes much like cookies with nuts and it's totally packed with seeds flavour.

I'm glad I tried the new skin recipe on this. I think it is incredible! Hopefully, my mom will like the new look of her mooncakes. haha... Just send a package home this morning. Keep my fingers cross!
