Halloween Pocky Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Homemade Halloween Pocky Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

My daughter loves Pocky, especially after our trip to Japan earlier this year.

For those of you who don't know what they are, Pocky are crisp light cookies dipped in chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream, etc. They're crunchy, sweet, and delicious!

And now you can make some fun ones yourself for Halloween, and they couldn't be easier!

Halloween Pocky Recipe

Ingredients:
  • Thin Italian Breadsticks (we got these at the grocery store bakery)
  • Candy Melts, Various Colors
  • Candy Eyes
  • Ziploc Bag
  • Black & Orange Jimmie Sprinkles
  • Coconut Oil
  • Wax or Parchment Paper
  • Baking Sheet
Directions:

Step 1:

Melt candy melts according to package instructions. Add ¼-½ teaspoon coconut oil to the melted candy to make a smooth consistency. We used blue, lime green, orange, white, red and purple candy melts.

 

Step 2:

To make the monster pocky, dip the mini breadsticks in the purple and blue melted candy melts. I recommend using a spoon to scoop the melted candy onto the breadstick. Gently tap off the excess candy melts. Place the dipped breadstick on a parchment lined baking sheet and chill until candy sets.

Repeat the dipping process to get vibrant colors. Add the candy eyeballs after while the melts are still wet. Place in the fridge to set.

Step 3:

To make the Halloween sprinkle pocky, dip the mini breadsticks into the orange and lime green melted candy. Gently tap off excess candy and place on a parchment lined baking sheet to chill. Repeat the dipping a second time but add the black and orange jimmie sprinkles to the wet candy coating. Chill pocky to set.

Dipped the mini breadstick into the orange candy melt | CatchMyParty.com

Step 4:

For the white and red pocky, start by dipping the breadsticks in white candy melts. Repeat 2-3 times and place in fridge with each dipping to let the candy melts set. Put the red melted candy in a piping or ziploc bag and cut the tip off. In a back and forth motion pipe the red candy melts over the white dipped pocky. Place in fridge to set.

Happy Labor Day, everyone! It has been so crazy hot here in Palo Alto, (107 degrees on Friday and 111 degrees on Saturday), that we checked ourselves into a hotel (that we found cheaply on Hotwire) because we have no air conditioning in our house.

The funny part was that, even though we were a mile from our house, it felt like a real vacation. We went swimming in the hotel pool, we ate take out, and we mostly lounged around in our freezing room. It was seriously fun! I'm not hoping for another heatwave, but if there is one, I will do this again!

I hope it's not as hot where are as it is here. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm ready to get to fall.

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich Recipe -- perfect sandwich to feed your kids for back-to-school | CatchMyParty.com

Here's the perfect back-to-school breakfast for your kids! They're simple to make and great for on-the-go families, like mine!

Waffle Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

Ingredients:
  • Favorite waffle recipe (I use mix from the store)
  • Spray oil
  • Crispy cooked bacon
  • Sliced cheese
  • Baked eggs
  • Wax paper
  • Whisk
Optional: Maple Syrup

Directions:

Follow the package instructions to make the waffle batter. Trim off any excess waffle around the edges. I found that when I used my electric handheld mixer, it made the waffle batter light and fluffy!

Make the waffle batter | CatchMyParty.com

There are two ways I like to cook bacon to make it nice and crispy; the first is to bake the bacon at 400 ℉ for 15 minutes, turning the bacon halfway helps so it cooks evenly.  Once you remove the bacon from the oven, finish it in a frying pan to make it extra crispy.

The second option is, if you have a griddle available to you, fry the bacon on the griddle, turning halfway through to get both sides cooked evenly.

Place cooked bacon onto a plate covered in paper towels to soak up the grease.

 

Crispy bacon | CatchMyParty.com

To make the baked eggs, whisk eggs with 1-2 tablespoons of milk. The milk helps to slow cook the eggs. Scramble the eggs or pour into a baking dish and cook at 350 ℉ for 15-20 minutes until eggs are no longer runny.

Add a little butter to the waffles and assemble the sandwich. Start with the waffle.

Sliced the waffle into 4 parts | CatchMyParty.com

Next add the slice of cheese.
