you could also make a quick mix mochi

1 part sugar
4 parts mochiko (rice flour)
4 parts water

mix everything together well, and then microwave (covered with a wet paper towel to help steam) for maybe about 4-5 minutes. It should bubble slightly and will change consistency. Then you can wrap as instructed above.
