Make Your Own Chocolate Kit Review and Giveaway

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, the stores are full of candy and chocolate.  Why not make this year special and make your own candy with your sweetie, child, etc.!  Glee Gum's Make Your Own Chocolate Kit is perfect for this Valentine's Day!

Here is some info on the kit:
Mixing elements of chemistry with world culture and history, this delicious kit contains everything you'll need to make 8 ounces of dark chocolate. Can be made on the stove or with a microwave - adult supervision is recommended! Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!

Inside each Make Your Own Chocolate Kits you'll find: organic cocoa butter, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, starter crystals, a temperature indicator, paper candy liners, instructions, and the story of 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! By the way, you also get some cacao beans - we thought you might like to taste a few.

Chocolate Kit Makes 8 oz. of dark chocolate! 

I love chocolate! Seriously what girl doesn’t? I love to cook, bake and experiment in the kitchen, so I was excited to try out the kit! Not only is the chocolate making kit very educational to do with children, but it is extremely fun to make and tastes great! I made various little chocolates. Some had mini marshmallows, peanuts and pretzel bits! No matter what was added or nothing added, they tasted wonderful!
