- Growing up, street cred was based on what snack you brought to school, and if you were the kid with the Pocky sticks, you were balling. I'm gonna show you how make this super-simple delicious snack in a few easy steps. Let's get started. So let's start by making the mix for the Pocky sticks. They're not hockey sticks, they're Pocky sticks, and they're my favorite. So I'm starting off with a little bit of unsalted butter and to that I'm gonna add some powdered sugar. And then using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, I'm gonna mix this up until it's nice and creamy and fluffy. Okay, so that's looking nice and creamy. Now to this I'm gonna add one egg and a little bit of vanilla, and then we're gonna mix this up until it's well-incorporated. All right, so the egg and vanilla have mixed in well, and now I'm gonna add my flour. So I'm using bread flour and bread flour is stronger than regular all-purpose flour and that'll help those Pocky sticks stay together, a little bit of baking powder for leavening, and a touch of salt. So I used unsalted butter so I could control the salt myself and then we're just gonna gently mix this until it's incorporated. Oops, I forgot the add one more ingredient, and that's a little bit of water. A touch goes in there, and then we'll blend this up. Okay, that looks amazing. The dough is slightly sticky. And then you just want to pull it together like so. And now we can roll out our sticks. So just take off a tiny piece of dough. And each Pocky stick is about six inches in length. And you're just gonna use your fingertips to roll them out. All right, that's the first one done, and you just want to delicately pick it up and place it on a lined tray, and then just keep rolling out more. All right, done. So I'm gonna pop these into a 350-degree oven and they're gonna bake up for about 10 to 12 minutes until they're nice and golden and crisp. So I've pulled my sticks out of the oven and they've had a chance to cool down and now I have three really amazing dips to coat them in. So I have the classic chocolate. We all know and love chocolate. The second one is a matcha dip, so it's matcha and a little bit of white chocolate, and the last is the coolest and prettiest, and it's freeze-dried, pulverized strawberries in white chocolate. So you want to be really careful when you're dressing them. So just delicately pour over the chocolate. Oh my gosh, doesn't that look amazing? And the entire Pocky stick isn't covered. So you just want a little bit of a handle on there. So coat it. Remove any excess like that. I think that looks pretty good, right? And then you're just gonna lay it out to harden. There we go. And I think the next one should be a matcha one. So I love the flavor of green tea, and green tea paired with white chocolate is so, so good. And there we go. That's matcha done. Now, time for strawberry, the prettiest I think of them all. So now I'm gonna hang on to my snack. I'm also gonna take these finished Pocky sticks and pop them into the fridge to set up so that we can have a little rainbow of Pocky sticks to go. Let's do it. We call this a bouquet of Pocky sticks. I think so. We hit up three different flavors with a classic treat. All your friends at recess are gonna be so envious of you. Pocky sticks.
