For this I was wondering
For the center instead of the regular filling of red bean paste or etc. 
How could you put chocolate for the filling inside?

Oh okay. I didn't know if maybe you knew how to put chocolate somehow for the filling instead?

I would guess that you would find the recipe for the moon cakes, themselves, then just substitute the bean paste for chocolate in equal amounts.

I found the moon cake reciepe and for the filling used a chocolate cookie recipe since I didn't have a moon cake press.
I made them circles, they tasted pretty good though.
But for chocolate, do you mean kind of like melted chocolate or something?

kijonaia Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I would say to use a ganache or some sort of thicker chocolate-y paste.

Ooh, yummy!  My favorite is the lotus seed paste with the egg yolk inside - to me it's the perfect balance of flavor and texture.  I always treasure these holidays... :aww:

they are not a bit pricy, as a matter of fact, they are quite expensive, which is totally annoying. i would never buy any...so i am glad i received two deluxe boxes as gifts.

No, I am afraid I do not celebrate moon festival, my children has no connection to any of the Chinese traditional holidays since they were born here and their father is actually a German decent.

It's great that you guys do though.
