yummy, very sticky, but manageable. only makes about 6-7 smallish mochi, so if you've bothered to make a kilo/2lbs of red bean paste, you're going to need to multipy the recipe considerably!! also, i only needed to stir the dough for about 30 seconds til the lumps were gone. i only microwaved for 2.5 minutes and kneaded the dough for 2 minutes (wrap the ziploc bag containing the hot dough in a towel to be able to start kneading straight away). greased scissors or knife is a MUST. also, i filled mine with homemade red bean paste (pretty good); others with flaked, roasted almonds and brown sugar, then rolled the balls in toasted sesame seeds... REALLY good! nice recipe, but quite a lot of work. the great thing is it's cheap, fun, and you probably already have the ingredients at home :)

easier than other recipes, but too sticky to fill and roll into balls...the only thing I could make out of it was to grease the scissors and just cut the dough into pieces.

So quick and easy to make! I put a little guava jelly in it and it was wonderful. My cat even liked it!

I liked the subtle flavor. I used honey instead of sugar and I ended up needing more flour. I don't recomend multiplying it too many more times at once. I multiplied it seven times and working with that much more increadibly sticky dough nearly made me bonkers. I took the recomendation to cut a hole in the zip bag and squeeze the dough out then cut with a kitchen scissors. That worked decently well. I also wraped some sweet bean paste in some of the mochi balls and I like that better than the plain. Thanks!

I love that I can now make this at home, so quick, cheap and easy! Love the micro and bag methods! The only problem I had was that 5 T of water wasn't enough, I think I added 3 or 4 more to the mix, other than that it was perfect! My toddler is in love and wanted more more more!

What a neat recipe! This was simpler to make than I expected, especially the part where you knead the dough in a plastic bag. I sprinkled a little sugar on top of the peanut-covered mochi immediately before serving -- I didn't have a problem with the mochi being too sticky. Thanks for sharing this!

This was okay. It was extremely sticky while making. If you want a traditional taste of Japan, go for it. My modern tastebuds definately did not crave more.
