What It Is
The Fortune Cookie Maker lets kids write, create, and decorate fortune cookies right at home. Just write down a fortune on the included strips of paper, combine the included mix with water, heat in the microwave for a few seconds, knead and roll out the dough, then place the dough in the Fortune Cookie Maker. With the push of a button, the cookie is folded and the fortune is sealed inside, and the cookie is ready to decorate and eat within 15 minutes. The Fortune Cookie Maker makes up to 12 cookies, and includes the maker, a mixing bowl, a spatula, a measuring tube, a rolling pin, a prepping mat, a drying tray, a cookie cutter, dough mix, icing, sprinkles, and six blank fortune papers and six pre-written fortune papers. Additional cookie mix packs are sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
The Fortune Cookie Maker is a fun activity for kids who like fortune cookies. The cookies could be great as party favors, with your child writing personalized fortunes for each party guest. And because the fortune cookies are edible, this gives kids the satisfaction of making food on their own.
Who It’s For
The Fortune Cookie Maker is for ages 5 and up. Adult supervision and participation is highly recommended.
What To Be Aware Of
It takes about 14 minutes to prepare and make the cookies, and then an extra 15 minutes to let the cookies dry. The instructions are good, but we had issues with the dough getting too dry, which made it difficult to work with.
Before you start, it is recommended that you wash your hands thoroughly with warm soapy water. Prepare your cookies in a clean, clear area, and write your fortune messages before you make your cookies.
Store completed cookies in an airtight container and keep in a cool, dry place. Consume cookies within 48 hours of making.
Wash the Fortune Cookie Machine and components before and after each use. Make sure to follow the Wash and Care instructions—the Fortune Cookie Machine is not dishwasher-safe.
Cookies contain wheat, milk, and soy, and may contain traces of eggs.
