Ghost Mochi

Difficulty: Beginner
Servings: 6
Best Season: Suitable throughout the year


Ghost Mochi is a charming and whimsical treat, perfect for Halloween celebrations or themed parties. These mochi are made from glutinous rice flour that's steamed and then shaped into soft, chewy balls. What sets Ghost Mochi apart is their delightful decoration, designed to resemble little ghosts.

To create the ghostly appearance, each mochi ball is typically covered in a white sugar glaze or dusted with fine white powder, such as cornstarch or powdered sugar, giving them an ethereal, ghost-like look. Features like eyes and mouths are then added with edible ink or small pieces of dark chocolate or black sesame seeds, creating cute or spooky faces.

Ghost Mochi are not only visually appealing but also offer a sweet, subtly flavored treat that melts in your mouth. They can be filled with traditional sweet bean paste or other fillings like chocolate or fruit jams, adding a surprise element to each bite. These mochi are a fun, festive addition to any party, delighting guests with their adorable appearance and delicious taste.

Mochi Dough



  1. In a clean bowl (microwave-safe), mix well glutinous rice flour, cornstarch, granulated sugar and milk until smooth. Sift once, cover it with microwave-safe plastic wrap, prick some holes on the plastic wrap, and steam until fully cooked (about 20-30 minutes). Or you can microwave it until fully cooked (about 3 minutes).

    How to tell if it is fully cooked? -The batter turns into solid dough. You can find no floating flour liquid inside the dough. The color is translucent.
  2. Transfer the dough into the stand mixer bowl, add in unsalted butter, and beat until well combined and dough becomes soft and stretchy. Scrape the dough out, wrap it with plastic wrap, and let it cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

  3. In a clean bowl, bring together heavy cream, sugar and salt, beat until stiff peaks form. Add in finely crushed Oreos and mix well. Transfer into a piping bag.

  4. Dust the working surface and the dough with more cooked glutinous rice flour, so it won’t be too sticky. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, and roll them into 8 round flat sheets. Put in the filling, wrap it up, and put in a cupcake liner. Shape the mochi a little to make them looks like cute ghosts. Use some food coloring or melted chocolate to draw on the mochi.

    I used a piece of dried seaweed to cut out some “eyes” and “mouth”
