My daughter got a Make Your Own Chocolate Kit for her birthday this past year, and we just found it in the pantry during Winter Break. It comes with all of the ingredients the are necessary to make the chocolate, except a bowl and spoon. The directions were easy to follow, and the kids were able to read them to me. The ingredients included in the kit are cocoa butter, ground cocoa, powdered sugar, starter crystals, thermometer, and candy wrappers. There was an informative instruction sheet included as well as 2 cocoa beans for your child to examine and taste while you are waiting for the chocolate to temper. You can also add some filling to your candies. Some of the suggestions are nuts, marshmallows, peanut butter, and dried fruit. My children chose to put 2 mini marshmallows in each candy wrapper, and then we filled each wrapper with the tempered chocolate. Then we had to put the chocolate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, so the chocolate would harden. When we chocolate was ready, we all tried a piece of candy. It was actually delicious! I was very impressed with this kit, and I would recommend this product.
