4 Easy Pocky Dessert Recipes

Born in Japan, Pocky is a world-famous snack that is loved by fans of all ages. Featuring chocolate-covered crunchy biscuit sticks, the name ‘Pocky’ is inspired by Japanese onomatopoeia for the addictive snapping sound made while eating the snacks. When it was launched in 1966, Pocky exploded in popularity which led to the release of many new and limited-edition Pocky flavours including crunchy almond, strawberry, white chocolate, cookies and cream, yuzu, blueberry, watermelon and many more.

The very first few batches of Pocky were made by hand-dipping biscuit sticks in chocolate while one end of the stick remains bare as the handle. This allowed for an enjoyable, fuss-free preparation and no-mess eating and sharing process. As the demand for Pocky grew, the method of preparation evolved, but the signature biscuit handle remained a distinctive feature of the snack. For easy sharing, the packaging of Pocky has also shifted to allow for simple access with a push-to-open concept.

Staying true to its tagline – ‘Sharing Happiness’, Pocky is certainly a well-loved and fun snack to indulge in during parties, snack breaks, tea time and virtually anywhere. Apart from being eaten on their own, these crispy sticks are great as garnishes on cakes, ice creams and all sorts of desserts.

In this article, we share 4 easy yet irresistible Pocky dessert recipes that are bound to tickle your sweet tooth.

Matcha No Bake Cheesecake

What you’ll need:

For the crust:

For the filling:

  • 500g of cream cheese,
  • softened 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
  • Fresh whipped cream or extra Pocky to decorate with (optional, but do it!)

How to prepare:

  1. In a food processor, combine the Pocky and pretzels. Pulse until the mixture is a course powder.
  2. Remove to a small mixing bowl and stir in the melted butter. Give this a mix so everything gets coated in the butter. Now press the crust into the bottom of your pan(s) and pop in the refrigerator.
  3. With an electric mixer or stand mixer, blend together the softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract. Be sure to scrape down the sides to ensure there’s no clumps of sugar.
  4. Next, in another clean bowl, add the heavy whipping cream and the matcha green tea powder.
  5. Be sure to sift the matcha powder to help eliminate clumps. Beat on high until medium soft whipping cream peaks begin to form. One you have that, fold the two mixtures together with a rubber spatula.
  6. Now add the batter to each crust, or to the pie pan, whichever you are using. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or overnight. Garnish with whipped cream, matcha Pocky sticks and a dusting of matcha powder.

Chocolate Pocky Pops

What you’ll need:

Cake Pops:

  • 2 3/4 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1 package 250g cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 600g chocolate confectioners’ coating
  • 21 chocolate Pocky sticks

Optional toppings:

  • 1/3 cup ground roasted salted pistachios
  • 1/3 cup toasted shaved coconut
  • 1/3 cup ground honey-roasted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup freeze-dried raspberry powder
  • 1/3 cup ground toasted walnuts
  • 1/3 cup ground toasted pecans

How to prepare:

  1. Line two or more baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine cookie crumbs and cream cheese in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until thick non-sticky dough forms (squeeze a little in your hand – it should hold together). Roll dough by the generous tablespoon into about 21 balls.
  3. Melt the confectioners’ coating in the microwave in 30 second increments until the candy can be stirred smooth. Dip the chocolate end of a Pocky stick into the candy and insert into a cake pop ball; lay on the prepared pan. Repeat process with remaining Pocky sticks and cookie balls. Refrigerate until set, about 5 minutes.
  4. Reheat candy coating if necessary. To dip, hold each Pocky pop at the Pocky stick just below the truffle ball with your thumb and forefinger (the Pocky sticks are prone to break if held at the bottoms); dip into the melted candy. Immediately dip or sprinkle over the toppings of your choice.
  5. Return the pops to the prepared pans. Refrigerate until set, about 20 minutes. Remove pops from the baking sheets by picking them up by the ball end and transfer them to a pretty serving platter.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
