Pocky - butterscotch

This post requires very little explanation. Having eyed NQN’s gorgeous Pocky Sticks, I couldn’t resist making some for myself! The recipe can be found in the above link.

The only alterations that I made were for tahini – I didn’t want to buy a full jar, as I only needed one tablespoon, so I ground up sesame seeds with a touch of sesame oil and salt. It worked fine. Of course, I was later told to make more, so I might invest in a jar sometime.

Pocky - cut

Slicing the dough with a sharp knife. Both times I made it, the dough seemed either too firm, or too soft, but the texture is definitely there.

Pocky - about to go in

Laying them out neatly on baking paper

Pocky - naked

Baked to a gorgeous golden brown – this made the house smell so good!

Pocky - dark chocolate setting

Dipped in Lindt dark couverture chocolate…mmmm

Pocky - coconut

Raffaelo-style – Dipped in Lindt white couverture and rolled in shredded coconut.

Pocky - honeycomb

Butterscotch – I couldn’t quite cut the hard candy into small enough pieces without grinding them to powder, but it still tasted great.

Pocky - all batches

  6. Pretty! It’s an added bonus if they taste like the genuine thing, ’cause they’re very expensive for 90g — and what’s that? 40 or so? Hrmm. Love the composition of your last photo!
