Glee Gum provided me with a free product to write a review. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own.
Do you like chocolate? I do and you probably think I’ve lost my marbles just asking that. I mean, who doesn’t love the rich creamy goodness of chocolate? For me dark chocolate is my favorite followed by chocolate and peanut butter, so when Glee Gum gave me an opportunity to review their make your own chocolate kits, I said YES! Make my own chocolate? How can I not say yes to that?
This chocolate kit was easy to use and when it arrived, I almost did back flips. It was for dark chocolate!! My favorite! I couldn’t wait to dive right into this kit. Everything I needed to make myself a decadent chocolate dream was included in the kit; organic, Fair Trade cocoa butter, organic, Fair Trade cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar, starter crystals, a temperature indicator, paper candy liners, instructions, and the story of chocolate.
Each kit makes 8 ounces, which would be about 20 chocolates by using their wrappers. The best part? Hubby does not like dark chocolate, so they were mine… all mine… <insert evil laugh here>.
Upon unpacking the kit, I saw everything all packaged separately and an easy to follow instruction sheet to help me make my perfect chocolates. Everything is pre-measured so it’s just a matter of adding ingredients as you go.
I think the hardest part of the process was waiting for the chocolate to cool. This is dark chocolate folks, I want to start munching now! So I busied myself in the kitchen while my chcoolate cooled. They provide you with a little temperature strip so you know the exact millisecond you can move onto the next step.
The instructions encourage you to think outside the chocolate and add your favorites to the candies. As I said, peanut butter & chocolate come in second to dark chocolate, so I took some of the little wrappers and dropped some goodies at the bottom to enhance my candy making experience. I added peanut butter to some, peanuts to a few, almonds to others and peppermint as well. If I was making my own candy, why not customize it?
Surprise of all surprises, hubby actually tried these. And bigger surprise then that, he said it was the best dark chocolate he has ever had! I almost fainted! But then started to worry about where I’d hide them…. well, I guess I’ll let him have one or two. This kit was easy to make and yielded excellent results. I highly recommend this kit for you and your kids to make. They’ll have a blast.
Here is one with crushed peppermint. So good!
Glee Gum does not just stop with chocolate. They also have other kits for gum and a gummies candy kit I had the pleasure of reviewing last year. Can’t decide between the three? You can buy the combo pack and get them all! They also have other novelties and supplies too. Head on over and check them out.
