  • ¾ cup warabi mochiko or bracken starch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup soybean flour (kinako)
  • kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup)


  • On a baking sheet, sprinkle some kinako.

  • Take it out from the refrigerator once cooled, and slice into ¾ inch cubes.
  • Toss the warabi mochi with kinako and pour the kuromitsu over it. Serve fresh.
