If you notice it, it's late September. I think there are many people who couldn't fully enjoy the summer because of the rainy days this year. For those who are not satisfied with the summer, we recommend the educational confectionery Popin Cookin series "Fun Festival" sold by Kracie. The estimated price is 200 yen (excluding tax).
This is a handmade sweet that you can make a menu of a festival that looks just like the real thing. You can enjoy 4 kinds of apple candy, potato, corn, and chocolate banana in one box.
When I was little, I couldn't buy educational sweets because I couldn't eat them even if I made them. Perhaps because of that, even at this age, when I see educational sweets, I get really excited . Returning to my childhood, the festival is open!
■ Preparation for openingFirst, read the explanation firmly. All you need is clean hands and water. Carefully cut the bag containing the ingredients with scissors to make a potato case and a festival sheet. Cut the tray with scissors and break it apart.
■ Candy applePut two measuring cups of water and "Candy Apple" in the tray marked with a star and mix 30 times with a spoon. Immediately after mixing, pour it into a mold and you're ready to go. It seems that it takes about 10 minutes to solidify.
■ PotatoWhile waiting for the candy apples to clump, I rushed to make potatoes. Put a cup of water and "potato base" in a tray with a jagged bottom and continue mixing until it is no longer powdery. At first, you may be worried, "Is it really organized ...?", But let's keep mixing patiently. Someday it will come together .
When mixed and lumpy, flatten with your fingers and remove from the tray. The trick is to press it so that the jagged pattern is firmly formed. Turn it over and place it on the cutting board of the festival sheet, then cut it with a spoon along the jagged edges.
■ CornNext is corn. Roll and stretch the "source of corn" by hand according to the "size of corn" printed on the festival sheet. When the size is just right, cut it with a spoon from the center.
Once you have a corn core, put the "source of crushing" in the crushing tray and tilt the tray so that the grains are evenly distributed. At this time, the explanation says, "Put about half of the bag in the base of the crush", but if you put too much in it, it will fail, so it may be just right to fill all the holes with grains.
Roll the corn core you made earlier by pressing it against the crushing tray, and sprinkle the grains. This is quite difficult! The point is to carefully roll it slowly from the edge . This completes the corn!
■ Chocolate bananaPut 2 cups of water and "Banana Source" in a jagged tray and mix well. When it is organized, take it out and knead it by hand about 10 times to make it round. When it becomes a sphere, put it in a banana mold and press it with your finger to shape it.
Preparing chocolate sauce while lumping. Similarly, put a cup of water and "chocolate sauce" in a jagged tray and mix. When it looks like chocolate, take the banana out of the mold, put a toothpick in it, sprinkle with chocolate sauce and toppings, and you're done!
At this point, the candy apples should be solid, so insert them from the round side of the toothpick and take them out. Put the cut potatoes in a potato case to make them look good, and arrange all the sweets on a sheet with a stall printed on them.
It will take about 20 minutes. I praise myself for the quality.
■ What is your favorite taste?Apple candy is "apple-flavored jelly-like", potatoes are "pine-flavored sweet and sour crispy sweets", corn is "grape-flavored chewing candy", and chocolate bananas are "banana-flavored crispy something". "was. sweet.
Don't lick it, "Isn't it for kids?" "Fun Festival" that adults can fully enjoy. If you are not satisfied with the summer, why not immerse yourself in a festive mood at home?
