Pokemon Go is a sweet new game, so we’ve created a sweet new treat to take with you while you play!
Hey Pocket Change Gourmet friends! I’d love to introduce you to my son! He has been helping us behind the scenes with photography and writing. Our family has had a great time hunting for Pokemon with the new Pokemon Go app. It’s all the rage now!
So when he wanted to create a Pokemon Go Treat and share it with you, I thought it would be really fun. You will be seeing Andrew, along with his girlfriend Caleb, more and more now that they have joined our team.
As you may know, a popular phone game named Pokemon Go has got everyone talking. Just about everyone is playing this game (including my dad even!), and for good reason. It’s fun! It has gotten everybody out and about and talking with each other. But all of this walking around works up an appetite. That’s why we’ve got these Pokemon Go Treats for your catching adventure!
These treats are easy to make, and great for when you’re on the go. The best part of these treats is they’re on a stick, meaning you won’t stick while playing your game! Just grab and go! That’s what I did for my venture to catch Pokemon. With a snack in hand I set out. Catching Pokemon was even better with a tasty treat. Bringing the treat around also caught the attention of others, so think about bringing some with you for other trainers. The treats are very easy to make so you can make a whole bunch for you, your family, and anyone else who might want some.
The ingredients used in these treats are easy enough to find. Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and red food coloring (be sure to use No Taste Red, it’s not bitter) make up the body of the treat. Just make two batches, roll each batch into balls, cut each ball in half, then stick them together on a stick. It’s that simple!
For the decorations we used Wilton prepared black fondant and white candy eyes (turning them backwards). Any candy will do, but if you choose something particularly big or small then you’ll have to change the size of your treats, so keep that in mind. If you’re not a big fan of fondant, you can substitute it with any candy that is thin, malleable, and long enough to wrap around your treats. Black licorice was my second choice, so you could try that. Once you’ve put all of your treats together, you and your family can go out on a sweet Pokemon adventure!
These treats are perfect for Pokemon fans of all ages. In fact, they’re great for treat lovers of all ages too! So the next time you find yourself going on a Pokemon picnic, think about bringing along some of these treats as a dessert. Your family will gladly eat them all while they catch them all!
