Pocky GridPocky is fun to eat, fun to make, and fun to spice! Inspired by Susan Spungen’s recent recipe post, homemade Pocky jumped to the top of our recipe list and we’re glad we didn’t wait. This recipe follows hers pretty much to the letter, except that we went all-out with a Valentine’s Day spicing and decorating theme. White chocolate bloomed pretty in pink with the addition of beet powder, kissed with a sprinkle of pink peppercorns. Set aside a little bit of white chocolate before you tint the whole batch so you can add a fancy swirl of white over the whole cookie.Pocky Plate

We chose dark chocolate with Smoked Tellicherry Black Pepper as the second flavor and the smoke-chocolate-pepper combination was fantastic. Pile them on a platter, dip them in cocoa and enjoy. The home made Pocky are irresistible.
