Edible Passover Makkot Treats

Written by Abbey on Monday, 11 March 2013. Posted in Tips And Tricks

While I love to include kids when I cook or bake, I'm not very creative when it comes to food crafts. In the past we've featured on our blog a few craft ideas for different holidays. When I met Abbey from Not2Shabby back in November I knew she would develop the perfect craft for adults and chlidren to enjoy alike. I can't think of a kid that won't love this Makkot package - CookKosher

As a mother and teacher I always find it so important to engage our children on the Passover night. We have them singing special songs, answering a multitude of questions, and engaging them in the overall Seder discussion. However, what I hear from my children year after year is “I’M HUNGRY!” And no feeding before the Seder helps. They are always starving, especially the bigger ones. This year I decided that I would pack for them a kind of “Seder Survival Pack” loaded up with some yummy goodies that would sure to enhance their Passover experience. When I was given the task to come up with an edible Passover craft for I knew what that survival pack would include – Edible Makkot!!
So Here’s what I included...... 
Dom (Blood) – Strawberry Applesauce
Tzfardaya (Frogs) – Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Frogs from Zelda’s Sweet Shoppe
Kinim (Lice) – Chocolate with white sprinkles 
Arov (Wild Animals) – Gummy/Sour Bears

Dever (Dead Animals) – Chocolate Bear Lollypops
Shechin (Boils) – XL Dot Candy on paper 
Barad (Hail) – Mini Marshmallows
Arbe (Locust) -  Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Locust from Zelda’s Sweet Shoppe
Choshech (Darkness) – Chocolate Pudding
Makkat Bicharos (Death of the First Born) – I know this is the hardest one. I wanted it to be positive instead of negative. So instead of going with bones or something yucky like that, I realized that the kids would be mighty thirsty after consuming all those treats so I got an apple juice and attached a note that says “I know you’re just dying to drink this!” 
I took all those tasty treats and wrapped them up simply with tissue paper and some curling ribbon. 
On the night of the seder they will go on each of my children’s plates to unwrap. I can’t wait to see each of their faces light up when they see their makkot sacks!

    This is such a great idea! In my cleaning frenzy I've forgotten to think about the kids on Seder night, thanks for reminding me !!! One thing: since my children are little I'll be going easy on the sugar and try to think of yummy, healthier and more satisfying treats.
    Any suggestions for a healthier makkot theme?
