Yummy Nummies Mini Kitchen Magic kits were one of this week’s after school activities for us. Yummy Nummies are based on a craze that started in Japan, where children can create miniature food items that look and taste just like the real thing. They are edible, delicious even, but very small. This is a food craft and it’s not designed as a food replacement and you shouldn’t try to make a main meal out of your creations.
We started out with the cookie kit. Inside the box you get a plastic preparation tray, the mini utensils and three pouches of ingredients: cookie powder and two sachets of mini choc chips (white and milk chocolate). You simply measure out your cookie powder, add a little water and stir up your mixture.
It’s very easy to do and then you pop the mixture into the moulds and sprinkle on the chocolate drops. Then the cookies go in the microwave. You only need to cook it for a few seconds – I was a bit concerned about the plastic tray, but it was fine. Then you leave them for a minute to cook before you try to get them out. We have to use a knife to ease ours out and they were a bit underdone – they went in for 17 seconds, but the recommended time was 15-20 seconds, so we’ll give the next batch a bit longer.
