Chocolate Candy Making
If you have kids and you want to try out candy making, this is the kit for you. I recently used it with my four-year-old and we had a blast. The kit comes with such a fun variety of chocolate, toppings, molds, and utensils needed to make the candy, and the recipes went beyond just melting chocolate and pouring it into a mold. My son really loved the dinosaur egg mold because we put candy pieces inside — which he thought was super cool. We’re excited to use this kit again.
