Purim Treats for Kids, Adults
Made from Kraft Food Products

Ingredients needed to make "Groggers" are: 1 14-oz. bag Kraft caramels, 2
tbsps. water, 4 or 5 medium size apples and 4 or 5 wooden sticks. Utensils needed
are a saucepan, wooden spoon, wax paper, shortening to grease wax paper and a
cookie sheet.
- To make "Groggers" follow these directions as depicted above: 1. Unwrap
caramels. Place caramels and water in saucepan. Cover. Cook over low heat,
stirring occasionally with wooden spoon until caramels are melted and sauce is
smooth. 2. Place sheet of wax paper on cookie sheet. Lightly grease wax paper
with shortening. Wash and dry apples. Insert wooden stick into stem end of each
apple. 3. Holding stick, clip apples, one at a time, into hot caramel sauce, turning

apples on a stick, for Purim.
McIntosh, Jonathan, De-
licious and other eating
apples can be used. Store
iia the refrigerator or
in another cool, dry place to
keep them at their best.
Teach beginning cooks to
adjust the heat carefully as
caramels must be melted
with water in a saucepan
over low heat to prevent
scorching. The saucepan is
covered while the caramels
are heating so that the
water won't evaporate. Lift
the cover to stir occasionally
until the caramels are com-
pletely melted and the
sauce is smooth.
.Explain to the smallfry
cooks that until the
caramels begin to melt


they do not need to be
stirred. To keep begin-
ners from becoming im-
patient during this step,
show them how to wash
and dry the apples very
well. Caramel will not
stick to moist apples.
Once the caramels begin
to melt they melt quite
quickly and must be care-
fully watched. Stir gently to
prevent air bubbles from
forming in the caramel mix-
ture. Show children how
this must be done.
When using a microwave
oven, be sure boys and girls
have been taught its correct
use before allowing its use

without parental supervi-
sion. To melt caramels in
the microwave oven, place
them in a deep glass bowl
with the water. Microwave
on high for 21/2 to 3 1/2 min-
utes or until the sauce is
smooth, stirring after each

Recipes Help Children Make Their Own
Shalakh Manot for Purim Celebration

The giving of sweets has
long been part of the Purim
tradition. How special it is

Successful cooking ad-
ventures depend on correct
measuring, especially with
baked goods. These tips are
a good starting point in
teaching children to meas-
ure accurately:
• Use standard measur-
ing equipment.
• Spoon flour or
granulated sugar into a
measuring cup; level with
a spatula.
• Dip measuring spoon
into ingredients; level.
• Pack brown sugar
firmly into a measuring cup
so that it holds its shape
when inverted.
• Assemble all measured
ingredients before begin-
ning to combine, so nothing
is omitted.
After measuring is
completed, allow refrig-
erated ingredients to
come to room tempera-
ture before combining.
To insure success,
suggest these cookie bak-
ing guidelines at the
appropriate moment
while working with chil-
• When baking two
sheets of cookies at a time,
stagger them on two racks
placed nearest the center of
the oven, not directly over
each other or touching sides
of oven.
• Use hot pads or mitts to
protect hands when reach-
ing into the oven. -
• Cool cookie sheets be-
fore baking a second batch;
dough will spread on hot
• Allow two inches be-
tween cookies since most
cookies will spread as -
they bake.
As you work with begin-
ning cooks, a quick "trans-
lation" of some basic cook-
ing terms may be necessary.
To beat margarine and
sugar, thoroughly combine
the mixture until it is light
and fluffy. A wooden spoon
or an electric mixer works
nicely. Margarine beats
easily if it has been softened
to room temperature.
"Blend" ingredients by
mixing until the mixture is
smooth and creamy in tex-
ture. "Stir" by mixing
around and around with a
spoon until ingredients are
thoroughly combined.
Stick margarine is often
used for cookie baking, and
regular Parkay margarine
has measuring markings on
the wrapper.
