Chocolate Base:

  • 300g Finger Sticks, Plain
  • 4 35g Dark Chocolate Bar
  • 4 35g White Chocolate Bar


  • 2 tbsp. red & white sprinkles
  • 3 tbsp. crushed peanuts
  • 1 pack crushed Oreo

You also need:

  • 10 pcs. Box with Pasty Pouch 5×6 or 10 pcs. Acetate Box
  • 10 pcs. Paper Belt or Logo Sticker optional


  • First, we need to prepare our toppings, crush nuts of your choice as fine like bread crumbs as possible and set aside.
  • Discard, cream filling of Oreo’s and crush it and set aside.
  • If using dried fruits, dice it as tiny as you can.

To Melt the Chocolate:

  • If you’re planning to melt in a double boiler, break your chocolates into small pieces and place it in a heat proof bowl.
  • Melt over in a slow simmering pot and stir until melted and smooth. Carefully take it off, from the heat and set aside. Repeat process if using assorted chocolates. And if you’re using a microwave oven, for the Milk and Dark Chocolate just heat it for 30 seconds, take it off and stir until smooth. And for the White Chocolate make it 1min. & 30 seconds. (Idk why it takes a little bit longer to melt the white chocolate than the others.

Let's Assemble Our Pepero:

  • Dip Finger Sticks or Pretzel Sticks individually in melted chocolate, leave at least 1½ inch plain on the other end.
  • Coat properly and shake off excess melted chocolate. (Warning: Finger Sticks are so light and breakable, so please shake it lightly.)
  • Decorate Pepero with your prepared toppings, be generous and creative as you can.
  • Arrange Pepero on a tray lined with parchment paper and let it set.
  • Repeat the process and have fun, until you are done with 10 dozen of Pepero.
