  1. Scoop or pipe 1 1/2 teaspoon size dollops of peanut butter on plastic food wrap and place in refrigerator.
  2. Prepare Mochi dough either over stove or microwave.
  3. Stovetop: Combine glutenous rice flour, water, sugar, and vanilla in a saucepan and place over heat source.
  4. Over medium heat constantly stir using a firm flat bottom wooden spatula or heat resistant spatula. Total cooking time will be approximately 6-8 minutes or until dough holds its shape and is very shiny.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile combine starch with powdered sugar and spread onto a sheet of parchment paper. Transfer dough onto prepared parchment sheet. Jump to step 9.
  6. Microwave method: Combine glutenous rice flour, water, sugar, and vanilla extract in a microwave oven proof bowl. Cover with plastic food film.
  7. Heat on medium for 2-3 minutes. Fold dough on itself to prevent hard or overcooked edges. Return to microwave for another 3 minutes. In most microwaves total cooking time will be 6-7 minutes. Dough should be cooked and feel soft and pliable.
  8. Let cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile combine starch with powdered sugar and spread evenly onto a sheet of parchment paper. Transfer dough onto prepared parchment sheet.
  9. Once cool enough to handle cut into even sized pieces, about 1 1/2 tablespoons.
  10. Using starch to prevent sticking, press into a small circle about 1 1/2 -2 inches in diameter.
  11. Place chilled peanut butter in center and fold edges toward center to close confection.
  12. Place seam side down on a plastic food filmed lined tray.
  13. Combine chocolate with oil and in 8 second increments melt in a microwave oven or over a water bath.
