Homemade Pocky Sticks

Enjoy the crunchy satisfaction of biscuit sticks covered in a variety of chocolates including matcha and strawberry.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons warm water
  • Melted dark chocolate
  • Melted white chocolate
  • Matcha powder
  • Pulverized freeze-dried strawberries

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and continue to whisk until well combined.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, salt and water and whisk until a thick, smooth batter has formed. Form into a ball.
  4. Cut off small amounts of dough and roll into 6-inch-long sticks. Place sticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 1 inch between sticks.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until slightly golden. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Divide melted white chocolate into 2 bowls. Add matcha powder to one bowl and freeze-dried strawberry powder to the other bowl until desired flavors/colors are achieved.
  7. Gently drizzle cooled pocky sticks with dark chocolate, matcha white chocolate or strawberry white chocolate. Return to parchment-lined baking sheet and transfer to the fridge to set. Enjoy!
