Mochi for beginners?

Hi! I'm surprising my boyfriend with some Japanese snacks for his birthday in a few weeks. I'm working on red bean paste today, and I'd love to make some mochi to serve along with it. There just seems to be a variety of recipes out there for easy mochi, and I'd like to have a good one that is reasonably easy enough for a first timer.

I do have a decent amount of experience with pastry, and I'd probably rate myself at an intermediate level. Any help?

    Making mochi from scratch is very labor intensive. I buy and love eden foods mochi- usually i cut into squares and bake until puffed but its also really amazing fried.
    Their website also has recipes and preparation suggestions
