Get the highest score by the judges for what you have created

Items Needed:
Baskets (Large Bowls),
Random food items (same random items for each team List at bottom of article)
Kitchen Items per team (spoons\knives\forks, mixing bowls, Toothpicks etc.)
An Assortment Of Food Items Teams Can Use Every Round - peppers, onions, sprinkles, frosting, butter, etc. as much or little as you want
A Plate per team to present the final product on.

How To Play:
Divide into teams of 4-6 players. This game can play 2-4 teams at a time, but for this example we will use 2 teams of 4. Teams are given a covered bowl. In the each team's bowls are the same set of ingredients. Once all teams have the bowl you can reveal the ingredients inside the bowls! Each team is then given 5 minutes (for a longer game if you have time you can do 10-15 minutes.) In that time they must use all the items in the bowl to create a brand new creation which will be judged by the judges (youth workers\adults you can have as many or few judges). The food must be on the presenting plate before the time is up. If not, then they are chopped (eliminated from the round). Let the judges talk and analyze the dish it adds some fun and drama to the game! Whichever team is the best is the winner the other teams have been CHOPPED!

Basket 1 (Make The Best Tasting Dessert): 1 pkg. Oreos, 1 pkg. cream cheese, 2 chocolate bars, pretzels, 

Basket 2 (Best Looking): Celery, Raisins, Peanut Butter, bag of marshmallows

Basket 3 (Best Tasting Appetizer): 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 bottle of Chipolte Dressing, 1 red pepper, 1 pack of Velveeta Cheese, 1 bag of tortilla chips 

Basket 4 (Best Looking and Tasting): 1 pkg. sugar cookies, 1 pkg. cream cheese, 1 c. sugar, 2 orange juice boxes, a variety of fruits

*** If you do lockins or a youth activity night or just a long youth group activity you can make it a contest of elimination just like the show. Play the same way but instead of just having one team win the round make one team be eliminated each round. ie Start with five teams of 6 each team is given basket 1 and 5-10 minutes. At the end of the round have the judges taste, analyze, and discuss which team is eliminated. Have all the teams line up in front of the judges and have the judges tell which team has been chopped. second round is a different basket and gameplay is the same. Each round eliminate a team until you are down to one winner.

As you advance rounds you can make them more difficult if you would like by adding more time, adding a weird ingredient (like pepperonis to one of the the dessert rounds), make the time shorter, etc.
