Delicious Homemade Mochi Bites: A Chewy and Irresistible Dessert Recipe!


Hey there, dessert lovers! Today, I'm excited to share with you a delightful recipe that will have your taste buds dancing with joy: Mochi Bites. These little balls of chewy goodness are not only incredibly delicious but also a joy to make. So, let's dive right in and discover the magic of Mochi Bites together!

I came across an amazing video by @ditaper_ on TikTok that showcases the step-by-step process of creating these irresistible treats. The video had me drooling with anticipation as I watched the dough come together. If you're a fan of soft and chewy desserts, you're in for a real treat. So, let's get started on this mochi-filled adventure!

Here's what you'll need for the Mochi Bites:


  • 1 cup glutinous rice flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Filling of your choice (such as red bean paste, matcha, chocolate, or fruit)

Now, let's dive into the recipe:

Step 1: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the glutinous rice flour, sugar, and water. Mix well until the ingredients are fully combined.

Step 2: Microwave the mixture for 1 minute, then remove and stir it thoroughly. Be careful, as the mixture will be hot.

Step 3: Return the bowl to the microwave and cook for another 1 minute. Remove and stir again. Repeat this process until the mixture becomes thick and sticky. This usually takes about 3-4 rounds of microwaving, but it may vary depending on your microwave.

Step 4: Once the dough is thick and sticky, allow it to cool for a few minutes until it's safe to handle.

Step 5: Dust a clean surface or a cutting board with glutinous rice flour to prevent sticking. Transfer the dough onto the surface and knead it gently until it becomes smooth and pliable.

Step 6: Divide the dough into small portions, about the size of a golf ball. Flatten each portion with your hands to create a small disc.

Step 7: Place a small amount of your chosen filling in the center of each disc. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, sealing it tightly. Repeat this process until all the dough and filling are used.

Step 8: Dust the Mochi Bites with additional glutinous rice flour to prevent sticking.

And there you have it – your very own homemade Mochi Bites! Bite into the chewy outer layer and enjoy the burst of sweetness from the filling. It's like a little taste of heaven in each bite.

Remember, the filling options are endless. Whether you prefer traditional flavors or want to get creative with your own combinations, feel free to experiment and have fun with it. Get your friends and family involved and make it a fun-filled mochi-making party!
