Hi, I’m Eugenie. The day after tomorrow, it’s Pepero day. So today I’m making pepero at home.
So here are the ingredients.
Lotte’s Pepero is the Korean version of Japanese Pocky. And Nov. 11 is 11/11, which means four Peperos (to people working at Lotte company). So Lotte started celebrating Nov. 11th as Pepero day, which was a clever marketing strategy because it is hugely successful in Korea now.
- 2 oz chocolate of your choice, melted (55g)
- 20 snack sticks
- Melt your choice of chocolate. I will start with semi-sweet chocolate. Normally pepero is decorated at home. So you don’t really have to temper your regular chocolate.
- And cover a pocky with melted chocolate. Today I use Pepero and stick-snacks. And decorate your pepero. You can decorate with chopped walnuts and Oreos. And also Wilton confettis work great.
- Then I will also use violet and white couverture chocolates. You don’t really have to decorate if you use couverture chocolate.
