I don’t know about you but I’ve been on a big Pokémon kick lately. Also, I’ve been beyond-inundated with work lately (as I’m sure you’ve noticed with my late posts) and needed something fun. What could be easier or more fun than making Poké Ball Candy Piñatas? This recipe (if you can even call it that) is as easy as it gets: Candy shell, decoration, filling. Best of all, no actual cooking required! If you’d like, you could even get creative and use decorating icing to create other types of Poké Balls: Great, Ultra, Master… have fun with it! These would be perfect party favors at any Pokémon-themed birthday party or event.
Just… don’t throw these at people. Or animals. Or anything living, really. Non-gaming violence is bad, mmkay?
I decided to fill my piñatas with a playful combination of Nerds candies and Everlasting Gobstoppers, with a few of my favorite Gym Badges and The Boy’s Pikachu Amiibo. Because Pikachu, that’s why. You either love Pikachu or you’re lying.
Ready to catch your first Pokémon? Let’s go.
