Pocky recipe- Toasted Peep and Chocolate Pocky Kabobs

Pocky and Peeps smore skewer recipeJust in time for clearance Easter candy! We had a BBQ at Lake Arlington for Easter today and lots of fun was had. Probably the cutest part of the day was these little Peep-kabobs! It’s a super simple recipe and they taste GREAT! Just take a stick of chocolate Pocky and skewer on three marshmallow Peeps. You may need to make the holes with a straw or something similar before you put them on the Pocky; I broke 2 sticks before finally getting them on. Toss them on a warm grill, just enough to melt the chocolate a little- these things are very structurally sound.

Don’t feel like getting the grill going? Toss it in the microwave for a few seconds. You could stick them in the toaster oven for a minute or two. Or run a torch over them to toast the Peeps a little. If you can manage to stick 2 Pocky sticks in there, you might even be able to manage holding them over a campfire!

Heating them up gives them a very smore-like taste! Awesomeness! Just check out Angela trying a kabob out!

Pocky= tiny sticks of pure joy!

Pocky Chocolate and StrawberryIf you’ve ever been “glomped” at a con, then you probably don’t need an introduction to Pocky. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then this review is for you!

Pocky is a ridiculously popular Japanese snack from Glico. You can find them in Asian markets, comic book stores, anime conventions and even at some Walmarts! They’re usually a dollar or two a box, unless you’re being overcharged at a convention. They’re nifty little biscuit sticks dipped into sweet flavored coatings. It’s really less of a biscuit and more of naked pretzel stick. The most popular flavors are chocolate and strawberry, but they come in a seemingly infinite variety of flavors. While I’m sure that the future holds many reviews of the other flavors, today we’ll focus on chocolate and strawberry.

Opening the Pocky is half the fun! The boxes are made to somewhat act as a display for your sweet sticks. Once you pop open the box, you’ll find a sealed pouch(or 2 if you got a large box) keeping your confection fresh.

The Pocky is a sweet crunchy treat. The stick is crisp and slightly salty while the coating counters with a sweet flavor. I definitely like the chocolate flavor better myself but the strawberry is nothing to sneeze at either(because that’d be kinda gross).  I was constantly surprised at how chocolaty each bite was.

Some notes about Pocky:

Don’t leave Pocky in a hot car, unless you want one giant Pocky bar… which actually sounds pretty good. On second thought, DO leave Pocky in the car.

Don’t let the clerk drop your Pocky. Half of our strawberry Pocky were broken because the clerk dropped the box. Still tasty though!

Pocky is considered a form of currency at anime conventions. Though prostitution is not technically allowed at these conventions, you’ll be surprised at what a box of Pocky can get you. Think of it as a fangirl Klondike bar.
