MAIN Arrow to Toy ReviewsToy Reviews Kid's Mini Oh Fudge Yummy Chocoloate Fudge Kit

Yummy Chocolate Fudge KitKid's Mini Oh Fudge! Yummy Chocolate Fudge Kit

Kid's Mini Oh Fudge! Yummy Chocolate Fudge Kit, by Sassafras Enterprises, Foods made in the USA, parts made Taiwan and China, assembled in the USA, recommended ages 5 and up, suggested retail $12.99 - $14.95 Chocolate fudge, yummy, yummy, is exactly right.

Having never actually made chocolate fudge before I was not sure what we were in for. I was very pleasantly surprised. This little kit which makes two rather small bricks of fudge was very simple to use. Our fudge was a bit on the soft side but I cannot guarantee that we measured the water and butter exactly right because we were working with a mixed age group of kids.

We aim more for approximate than exact, and even though the fudge was soft it was a huge hit from start to finish. The children ranged in age from 3 to 11 and were able to work together and complete the entire project with little more than a watchful eye on our part. Of course there is no cooking involved so they were able to work more independently.

The kit comes in a clear, zippered, reusable bag and includes: chocolate fudge mix, paper trays, paper chef's hat, and a real whisk. The recipe and directions are written in rhyming poetry form, a cute extra. The portion is geared for one or two kids; the kit makes a great gift, or an enjoyable rainy day activity. A family working together in the kitchen, following recipes, preparing meals, is a lost art in many households. It's hard for busy parents to take time out to cook at all never mind teach their kids basic cooking techniques. The fact that including the kids in cooking meals requires time, patience, and some extra clean-up, especially when the children are younger doesn't make it any easier. But the truth is that it is well worth the effort. Cooking with the kids has tremendous educational and health benefits in addition to being fun.
