This snack is an intellectual training kit for small children that allows them to make candies that are visually reminiscent of popular foods available at omatsuri (Japanese festival) sites. Further, this DIY candy kit is free of synthetic colorants and preservatives.
Before use, prepare a glass of water and wash your hands. Avoid using mineral water as it may not blend well with the mixes.
Open the box and plastic bag inside it, take all the contents from the bag, and cut the tray into four pieces: triangle measuring cup, large tray (it has a banana mold, bumpy bottomed tray, and candy apple mold), medium-sized tray with jagged bottom, and tray with a star mark. Meanwhile, spread out the plastic bag to make the Matsuri sheet, which will be necessary for the later steps.
Use the measuring cup, and add two cupfuls of water to the tray with a star mark. Then add the apple candy mix (red package) to this tray, and mix them well with the attached spoon. Pour the mixture into the candy apple mold (i.e. two round holes on the large tray) immediately after mixing them. Wait for approximately 10 minutes until the mixture gets solid.
Open the corn mix (white package), roll it with your hand and stretch it to the recommended corn size that is marked on the Matsuri sheet. Then cut it in half using the attached spoon. Meanwhile, add corn grain (blue candy) to the bumpy-bottomed tray until the content covers the whole bottom. After this, roll the corn on the tray so that the grains can adhere to the corn.
Use the jagged-bottom tray, and mix two cupfuls of water and banana mix (yellow package) together to create banana dough. When you make a mixture, knead it well and press it into the banana mold.
Use the small side of the included measuring spoon, and add one spoonfull of water to the jagged, white tray. Add the shaved ice ingredient powder from the green/white sachet, and mix thoroughly with a spoon until it becomes the consistency of shaved ice. Add this mixture to the included kakigori cup. In the smaller, round, white tray add the kakigori syrup powder from the blue/white sachet, and one spoonful of water from the larger side of the measuring spoon. Mix until smooth. Pour the kakigori syrup over the kakigori shaved ice.
Add a cupful of water and chocolate mix (brown package) into the jagged-bottom tray again, and stir thoroughly to create the chocolate sauce. Meanwhile, press the back of the banana mold to squeeze out the mixture, and divide it into three pieces of banana-shaped candies. Then skewer these candies with the attached toothpicks, dip them in the chocolate sauce, and add toppings.
Finally, remove the apple candies from the mold by turning them with the toothpicks in a circular motion. Once you turn over the candies, put the toothpick into the round side of the candies. Then finish creating the apple candies and they are ready to eat.
