  • 100g glutinous rice flour
  • 30g cornstarch
  • 180g milk
  • 30g granulated sugar
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 10g vegetable oil
  • 250g heavy cream
  • 40g dark chocolate chips
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 20g granulated sugar (more or less depending on preference)
  • Mini chocolate balls


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine 100g glutinous rice flour, 30g cornstarch, 10g cocoa powder, 30g granulated sugar, 10g vegetable oil, and 180g milk. Mix until smooth and well-combined.
  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and prick some holes in the plastic wrap. Steam the mixture until fully cooked, which takes about 20-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can microwave the mixture until fully cooked, which takes about 4 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, let the dough cool down and knead it. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a small ball.
  4. In a separate bowl, melt 40g of dark chocolate chips with 50g of hot heavy cream. Mix until smooth and keep it in the fridge to cool down.
  5. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled down, add in 20g cocoa powder and mix well. Add in 250g heavy cream and 20g granulated sugar (or more/less depending on your preference). Use a hand mixer to beat until the mixture thickens. Put the whipped cream into a piping bag.
  6. Dust the dough balls with some cooked glutinous rice flour (stir-fry the flour in a non-stick pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes). Roll each dough ball into a flat round piece and add in the cream filling and mini chocolate balls. Wrap it up and put it in a cupcake liner.
  7. Serve the Chocolate Mochi and enjoy!
