Cut the mochi in half and place on a baking sheet in a 400° oven or toaster oven. Bake about 7 to 10 minutes or until the mochi puffs.
While the mochi is cooking, heat the syrup in a small saucepan until boiling. Reduce the heat, simmer 5 to 7 minutes on low. Remove and place in a small bowl.
Place the almonds in a food processor or blender and grind until slightly coarse, but not flour. Place in a small bowl.
Remove the mochi, dip each piece in the hot syrup and then roll in ground almonds. Serve immediately.
