Make your own Chocolate Kit ... fun for the whole family.
This Make Your Own Chocolate Kit contains everything you'll need to mix elements of chemistry with world culture and history. Each kit provides valuable background information that connects children to the part of the world where the raw ingredients are produced, and even includes real cacao beans to examine and taste. Best of all, this activity gets your child away from the television and into the kitchen learning something new. Your new candymaker will recieve an all-in-one experience that is easily created and rewards the learning experience with a tasty treat.
Great for class room activities, scout troops, home schooling, or after school groups. Makes a great gift for a rainy day with kids or a birthday party. One make your own candy kit would yield enough chocolate for a birthday party of 6-8 children. However, if you wanted this to be more of a hands-on activity, you can easily split a larger party into two groups, and give each group of five their own kit to use.
Inside each Make Your Own Chocolate Kit you'll find:
- organic cocoa butter
- cocoa powder
- confectioner's sugar
- starter crystals
- a temperature indicator
- paper candy liners
- instructions & the story of chocolate
To make the chocolate, all you have to do is melt the cocoa butter, add the cocoa powder and sugar. Stir, stir, stir until it cools to the right temperature; add the starter crystals so that the chocolate "tempers," and enjoy delicious home-made chocolate from scratch! Use either the stove or microwave to make your chocolate.
Each Make Your Own Chocolate Kit makes 8 oz. (approx. 20 pieces) of dark chocolate.
Made in the USA. Adult supervision is recommended. Ages 8 & up.
