Do you love Pocky? Just how cute are these Waffle Pocky Pops? They are regular, strawberry, and matcha waffles on Chocolate, Matcha, and Strawberry Pocky biscuit sticks that are then drizzled with frosting and topped with fun sprinkles! And, I absolutely love how colorful they turned out! These would be the perfect dessert for a party or for brunch! And the Pocky biscuit stick makes them so easy to eat! Want to make them? The recipe is below. In order to make all three waffle flavors, I made one batch of regular waffle mix, then divided it into 3 bowls. I set one bowl of regular waffle mix aside, I added matcha powder to one bowl, and I added macerated strawberries and red food coloring to another bowl. If you only want to make matcha waffles or strawberry waffles, then use 1/4 cup of matcha powder or 2 cups macerated strawberries instead of what I call for in my divided recipe below.
- 2 cups flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 Tb baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1½ cups milk
- 1 Tb plus 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 egg yolks
- 3 egg whites
- ⅓ cup butter, melted
- 1 Tb matcha powder
- 6 macerated strawberries
- Chocolate Cream, Strawberry, and Matcha Pocky
- Green and pink candy melts
- Special supplies: waffle maker
- Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Combine the milk, vanilla, and 2 egg yolks.
- Gently mix the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until partially combined.
- Next, add the melted butter and gently combine. Set aside.
- Whip the egg whites into stiff peaks. (Use a stand or hand mixer, trust me.)
- Then combine the stiffened egg whites into the waffle mix and divide into three bowls. Set one bowl aside.
- Add the matcha powder to one bowl, mix until combined.
- Add the macerated strawberries and 1-2 drops of red or pink food coloring to another bowl and mix until combined.
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions on your waffle maker to make the waffles.
- Once baked, allow to cool. Use a wooden popsicle stick or kabob to poke a guide hole into the bottom of the waffle. Remove and insert your desired flavor Pocky biscuit stick.
- Melt candy melts per the manufacturer's instructions (I melt mine in the microwave in pastry bags), then use either a pastry bag or a sandwich bag with a cut off tip to drizzle candy melt on the waffle, then immediately cover with sprinkles.
My waffle flavors were totally influenced by the Pocky flavors! I loved mixing the matcha waffles with the Strawberry Pocky and the strawberry waffles with the Matcha Pocky! So fun to mix and match! And you know I was snacking on the Pocky while I was making the waffles! To learn more about Pocky, you can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I found Pocky in my local grocery store in the asian food aisle, but if you need help finding Pocky at a store near you, be sure to use this store locator.
