We had to keep checking them often and reshaping as they spread out and went a bit flat during the baking process. As soon as they were crispy on the outside and not too bendy we took them out to cool and set to making the chocolate coating. Note that the sticks cooling in the picture are half size - we stuck them together with chocolate later.
The soon-to-be Pockies were transferred with extreme care to two glass mats, to prevent kitchen messing-uppage. We then melted the chocolate for 1 minute in a 750W microwave and coated the biscuits to make a delicious giant Pocky that even (in our opinion) tasted vaguely (Oz says: quite!) like the real thing as an added bonus.
So behold! Our sumo-sized Japanese snack!
