Pokemon Cookies

August 14, 2016

Pokemon Go is the big craze this Summer. The girls are really enjoying playing it and so we decided to have a Pokemon themed day where we played some fun games and did some Pokemon crafts. After all the hard work of catching Pokemon they needed a fun snack to keep them going so we decided to make Pokemon cookies shaped like Pokeball’s. These would be great at a Pokemon themed party.

If you are looking to make these even easier then you could just buy any round biscuits and decorate them. We used this easy biscuit recipe to make our biscuits.  Once they were cooled this is how we decorated them.

Ingredients

  • Round cookies
  • black icing
  • red icing
  • white icing
  • royal icing/jam

We also used a round cookie cutter, a sharp knife, and a rolling pin and board. To make the middle circle we used two lids one slightly bigger than the other. They were from the food colouring and vanilla pots.

Roll out the red and white icing and cut into circles. Cut each circle in half. Cut the black icing into thin strips. Cut a white and a black circle using a small lid, we used one from a food colouring bottle. Cut a hole in the black circle

Cut a white and a black circle using a small lid, we used one from a food colouring bottle. Cut a hole in the black circle and place on top of the white circle of icing. Put the pieces together to make a Pokeball. We stuck the pieces on using a little bit of royal icing, but you could use jam.

Although I made the four on the plate below it is totally possible for children to make these themselves and look good. Above is my daughter’s Pokemon cookie. She is aged 9 and did this completely on her own. She didn’t use a cookie cutter to cut the shapes but simply moulded them with her hands. If you have a steady hand you could use royal icing and pipe the black lines on, but I think that would be much fiddlier.

After we made these cookies we went for a real life Pokemon hunt. We decorated Pokeball’s and hunted around the garden for Pokemon toys.

Pokemon Cookies

To go with the Pokeballs the children also designed their own Pokemon biscuits. They made  their favourite Pokemon creatures using the cookie dough and lots of different animal cookie cutters. They also make Pokemon trainers using gingerbread men. The animals which worked best were ducks, pigs, dogs, mice and zoo animals. It didn’t really matter as they used their imaginations to make them look more like the Pokemon.

Once the cookies had cooled they used different coloured icing, icing pens and chocolate buttons for the eyes.

The good thing about the children making them themselves is that it didn’t matter if they were a bit messy and not Pinterest perfect – they loved them.

We had a whole litter of Pokemon pigs.
