How To Make Domo-kun Pocky


WARNING: You might consume a lot of sugar while making this.

Some people dream of flying or winning the lottery. As for me, I dream of strange things like Pocky with Domo-kun faces. Yes, this idea came to me in a dream. So what did I do? I went down to the store and bought some Pocky of course. I had to test the idea out, right?

Supplies:
1 single pack of Pocky (will yield 2 Domos)
Small marshmallows
Frosting
Red fruit roll-up
Black food marker

Line up 9 Pocky. If you want them to stick together, try melting the chocolate until they stick together and let dry.

Cut out a rectangle from the fruit roll-up for the mouth. Attach it to the Pocky with frosting.

Flatten marshmallows and cut into 8 small triangles for teeth. Attach with frosting.

Cut out two small circles from the marshmallows. Color black with food writer marker. Attach to Pocky with frosting. Done.

* You could also use frosting for the teeth and the eyes instead of marshmallows.

Nice :)
Just wondering, have you ever tried Banana Pocky? I found it once at World Market and LOVED it, but I haven't seen it there anymore and have never seen it at any Asian market.

I love Pocky. I love Domo-kun. This is just perfect! I can't wait to show this to my son; he'll also appreciate it and probably demand one immediately. What a fun idea for a Domo-kun birthday party for my youngest nephew!

If you haven't seen Domo-kun's episodes for NHK, you can find them on youtube. They're in Japanese, but some of them are subbed on this site: http://hellodomokun.com/

They're hilarious ... enjoy!

I don't get it...how can you resist eating the Pocky long enough to turn it into Domo-kun?! Very clever!

So cute!! Love me some domo-kun! I went to a grown-up halloween party as Domo-kun several years ago and, uh, none of the adults knew who he was (duh)... So geeky. :) I love it when I dream of a project that ends up working out in real life!
