I love to go through boxes of Chi Chi Dango while I'm in Hawai'i, and I get it at a certain specialty Japanese candy store. I was so pleased to find this recipe online at Aloha World.

What I was really after was a simpler, plainer tasting mochi. Made as is, this was very nice indeed, but because it was not what we were after, I shall try this again, but not with coconut milk. Baked it wrapped in foil as suggested by the other reviewer, and the texture was indeed soft and chewy. Thank you for sharing.
