Cookies & Cream Pocky Cat Cupcakes

Spooks and black cats may soon alight upon your doorstep demanding a Halloween treat. Given the Star Wars revival, Stormtroopers and Princess Leias will also inevitably appear. (Probably a Trump or two, too!)

Want to make the Halloween mini monsters happy? Present Japanese Pocky. Any flavor Pocky in the hands of a trick-or-treater will prompt huge smiles. Maybe even a “May the Force be with you” from the Star Wars gang.

Homemade cupcakes are guaranteed crowd-pleasers also. So, I created Halloween kitty cat cupcakes whose whiskers are Cookies & Cream Pocky. If you celebrate Halloween, you’ll already have the other ingredients such as candy corns and chocolates on hand. Amazon Prime can deliver the candy eyes and Pocky to you. If you have a Japanese market near you, however, I guarantee you won’t have to go online. Pocky is a household name and staple in Japan.

Pocky makes for a perfect flower arrangement,
garnish and Halloween treat!

Just in case you’ve not been properly introduced, Pocky is a classic Japanese treat. Originally slim biscuit sticks were coated only in chocolate. Today every flavor from green tea to sweet potato is available in Pocky form. Its’ cousin, Pejoy is also exponentially expanding in variety and popularity. Pejoy treats are also slim biscuits, but the chocolate, green tea and other delicious flavors are tucked inside.

歴史的にハロウィンはケルト人のお盆と考えられます。死亡した親戚は地球に遊びに来る祭りでした。 大抵のアメリカ人は歴史を忘れております。伝統的にアメリカでパーティーを開いて魔法使いとか黒猫の衣装を着ました。今も人気がある衣装ですが毎年新しい衣装とか面が出てきます。今年大統領になりたいトランプの面が確かによく売っております。子供の為にTrick or Treat?(いたずらか美味し物?)の伝統もあります。意味はお菓子をあげないと人自宅に卵を投げる、いたずらをすることです。ポッキーを上げると安全です。(笑う)ポッキーは本当に素晴らしいトリトです。どんな種類でも子供のTrick or Treatersイトリクオトリターズ)を喜べさせます。カップケーキの上にも飾ることができます。完璧な風蝶草にもなります。ハッピーなポッキーハロウィンを過ごして下さい。
