Homemade Peanut Butter Pocky from TheBakingRobot.com

One of my classes this semester was Korean, and I was surprised at how often my classmates and professors would talk about Pepero. Korea even has a Pepero Day on November 11. Get it, 11/11? Like the shape of the snack? It’s actually kind of adorable.

But I’d never had Pepero (or the more popular Japanese version, Pocky) until last week, when a classmate brought strawberry Pocky to celebrate the last day of class. My fellow classmates cheered and I was just like, “Uhh did NO ONE else see these Japanese lemonade gummies behind the Pocky? No? Good.”

Let’s take a moment to reflect on how weird it is that we only ate Japanese candy in Korean class.

Christmas Dark Chocolate Fudge Red Velvet Ice Cream from TheBakingRobot.com

The following is a long overdue explanation, from a human-pretending-to-be-a-robot-on-the-Internet. (That’s a weird thing to admit.)

Hi, fellow humans. Please, refrain from screaming! Suppress those gasps! Stop crying, please, I’m begging you!

Count Chocula Cream Pie | The Baking Robot

Good Monday morning, humans! Call in sick to work, skip school, do whatever you have to do to free up your morning and make this cereal pie. It’s the only way to start the week. The only way, I said!

General Mills contacted me again this year to create some recipes using some of their Monsters cereal. Since cereal has always been one of my favorite ingredients – you know this by now, right? – I was really excited to have an official reason to hoard boxes of cereal. For research purposes. 

Last year, I made Count Chocula Donuts and Yummy Mummy Pudding Pops. (The Yummy Mummy flavor isn’t available this year, but the pudding pops will taste just as delicious with any of the other flavors.)

Rainbow Trail Mix Popsicles | The Baking Robot

Summer is winding down and I can feel it in my metal frame. And by “I can feel it” I mean “I am aware that classes begin next week and suddenly I won’t be able to stay up until 3 am marathoning TV shows on Netflix.”

Which is what all robots do in the summer months. 

So! In my effort to prolong the feeling of summer and laziness and no responsibilities (a perk of being a robot student) I’ve made a classic summer treat even more summer-y by transforming it into popsicles!

And popsicles are my most favorite summer treat, so there was no way this recipe wouldn’t be awesome.

Baked Pineapple Donuts with Chocolate Glaze & Toasted Coconut | The Baking Robot

That recipe title is a mouthful. But so are these donuts. It’s fitting.

They’re a mouthful because you’ll want to eat the whole donut in one go. And I would not blame you at all.
