Cute Recipes & Crafts For Pocky Day

Posted on


There are many reasons to love November, but today is the day to celebrate the simple and delicate delight that is Pocky. Pocky (pronounced “pokey”) is a Japanese snack consisting of thin biscuit sticks dipped in chocolate. 11/11 is Pocky Day because the numbers look like Pocky sticks.

For Pocky Day at our house, I decided to make kawaii Pocky Pops using the Japanese confection dorayaki (a pancake sandwich with anko filling). I made mini pancakes*, spread lemon curd on one, added 2 Pocky sticks, placed the second pancake on top, and decorated the front with frosting. These turned out adorable and delicious. My 4-year-old daughter liked decorating them almost as much as she liked eating them. *For a delicious vegan recipe, see my recent kawaii pancakes post.
