1. In a shallow bowl, combine the icing sugar, matcha powder, and hot water. Mix well to get a thick consistency. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.
2. Scrape off the chocolate from the pocky sticks, and break them into smaller pieces to form the alien’s antenna. Insert this to the inner part of each donut.
3. Dip the donut in the glaze and let it dry.
Note: You can also insert the pocky stick after you’ve dipped the donut in glaze. Just dip the pocky stick and insert into the glazed donut.
