Cookie, chocolate, and marshmallow: the delicious flavors of a s’more, rearranged. Store-bought marshmallows are fine, though this dessert is even better with the homemade version. Try mixing and matching marshmallow and Pocky flavors to find your favorite combination. For example, strawberry-flavored marshmallows with matcha-flavored Pocky evoke the traditional combination of a cup of hot matcha accompanied by a strawberry-filled daifuku mochi.


Serves 2

1 packet of Pocky, your favorite flavor
1 bag of marshmallows, your favorite flavor

Step 1

Open the packet of Pocky and the bag of marshmallows.

Step 2

Carefully skewer several marshmallows (depending on their size) onto each Pocky. It may be easier to make a hole in the marshmallows using a skewer before threading them onto the Pocky, as the Pocky are prone to breaking. Do not overload the Pocky, as they may break under the weight of the marshmallows. The marshmallows can also catch fire, so leave enough Pocky to keep a safe distance from your hand and the marshmallows should this occur.

Step 3

Using your stove, a kitchen blowtorch, or, preferably, an open fire, toast the marshmallows, being careful not to burn the marshmallows or yourself. Allow to cool slightly before devouring.

How would you rate Pocky S’Mores?

  • Haven't tried making these but have the following questions: I like my marshmallow - a nice golden brown with a little crispy burn, how do you keep the Pocky from melting while cooking the marshmallow? Realistically, don't you think an open fire is probably not best since it would be too hot for the pocky stick plus too hot for one's hand?

  • I haven't made these, but what a smart idea! Chocolate Pocky with cinnamon marshmallows, anyone? You can serve it to garnish a warm frangelico hot cocoa for an adult camping treat.
