"Yum!" - Optional Cooking Challenge

For the next optional learning challenge, we are focusing on baking and cooking. The challenge is to prepare a tasty dessert following the guidelines listed below:
  • The dessert must be nut-free.
  • It can include a cookie or cookies, but cannot be just cookies.
  • You can only bring in one serving (the judges will share - too many plates of desserts cause chaos in a 5th-grade classroom...)
  • It needs to be made primarily by the student (assistance can be provided, but the majority of the work should be done independently.)
  • Adult supervision is required.
  • It doesn't have to be made entirely "from scratch," but it cannot be made from a single box kit.
  • The process must be documented through either photographs or videos shared to Mr. Salsich through Google Drive. (Here is a tutorial for uploading and sharing media on Google Drive from a desktop and here is one for uploading and sharing through a mobile device.) 
  • It must be delicious!
  • Please include an index card or similarly sized slip of paper with the name of your dessert on it. (But not your name.)
  • Presentation will be factored into the judging
  • Entries are due Monday, November 6th
The entries will be judged (anonymously) by Mr. Keith, Mrs. Brucoli, and/or Ms. Selinger. They will determine a winning dessert and a runner-up based on presentation and taste.

The winner will get to pick one of these boxes of "food" from Japan and the runner-up will receive the other box.

Sushi in a box? Hamburgers in a box? What in the world...

Bon appetit!
