If your kids love cookies and you’re looking for something fun (and FREE) these school holidays, the Muffin Break Cookie Workshops could just be the answer!

On Tuesday 19th January 2016 Muffin Breaks around the country will see a kids’ cookie takeover at stores nationwide*, and you’re all invited!

For the first time across Australia Muffin Break will be hosting a fully supervised Kids Cookie Creation Workshop from 10am until 12pm.

Children will receive a cookie baked fresh in store to decorate or a ball of cookie dough to roll out and decorate before being baked by the expert bakers at Muffin Break. Each child can create their very own custom design with access to a selection of decorations including icing, hundreds and thousands, choc chips and smarties, before taking it home to enjoy!

Mums, dads, grandparents, uncles, aunties and other carers can sit back and watch the kids get creative in the kitchen, without the mess. The Kids Cookie Creation Workshop will be great training for little helping hands in the kitchen and a chance to discover their inner baker.

Children must be registered prior to the Kids’ Cookie Creation Workshops and spaces are limited so please register your interest in store as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. BOOK HERE!

  6. I love the look of excitement on his face the moment i grab the mixing bowl and sit it in front of him, and then the none stop “done? , done? , done?” until everything is cooked. He looks so proud when we eat what we have made together.

  8. Michelle Green Reply

    Peanut Butter Cookies are our favourite thing to bake with the kids.

    Five ingredient easy mix cake. I’m sure between my children and my day care children, we must have made this cake, or loaf, hundreds of times. It’s such an easy cake to make, the children could decide how they wanted the cup of fruit, chocolate, marshmallows, or nuts to be made up. They got to measure, count and stir, and my little day cares got to take their cooking home. Great fun, and if you had four child cooks all stirring and measuring together a lot of easy to clean up mess.

  10. Master four is very popular at play group he loves making his choc honeycomb slice everyone always comes back for more

  11. Julie Hodsman Reply
