Step 5

Warm the mixture over low heat. When it starts to thicken, cook it for 5 minutes, stirring it vigorously, until you have a smooth and stretchy dough.

Step 6

Transfer the mochi dough onto a worktop dusted with corn starch. Then, dust it with some starch to make it less sticky.

Step 7

Pinch off a small handful of dough and shape it into a ball.

Step 8

Flatten one ball into a thick disc and brush off excess starch on both sides.

Step 9

Then, place the chocolate ball in the centre of the disc.

Step 10

Pull the edges of the dough towards the centre and over the filling, pinching them together at the top.

Step 11

Repeat for the other sides of the dough wrapper as you would do for a dumpling, pinching them at the top.

Step 12

Then, hold the mochi in your hand and keep pinching the dough together while you twist the mochi to make a tight ball.

Step 13

Finally, flip the mochi seam-side down and lightly press it into a dome shape.
