Review of ChoconChoc melt and make
chocolate egg heads
For a chocoholic, this is the ultimate heaven isn’t it? Layers of chocolate all melted together to make a chocolate egg! Yum!
We tried out this pack that came with full instructions, a mould, a cute little chef’s hat. decorations and, importantly the belgian chocolate drops.
I could have eaten these quite easily on their own but ‘luckily’ our 8 yo daughter was there to keep me on the straight and narrow…
So we started off melting the chocolate and because it was good quality, it was a smooth operation. We then followed the instructions and added a layer to the moulds.
When I read the instructions, I thought it sounded a bit complicated, long-winded and far too techy for a chocoholic mum and her eager 8 yo. Layering, leaving to cool, layering again and again… I was a bit sceptical at how our egg would turn out.
At the risk of sounding like a cliche, I was pleasantly surprised. I mean, we’re not going to be chocolatiers anytime soon but the layers actually worked! We had made our own chocolate egg. Very impressive… er so impressive that we broke a bit off to try and ended up devouring the whole lot before my camera had a look-in! Now that’s a testimonial to the taste of the chocolate. I don’t ‘do’ cheap, tacky chocolate. Life’s too short and I’d rather have good quality stuff that melts in your mouth and leaves you licking the inside of your mouth deliciously.
On that basis alone, I’d highly recommend the chocolate egg kit as a fun activity. It goes great with a decaf. Oh and wine too! It’s often the case that with kits containing sweets or foodie things, that you don’t quite get enough, or ‘just’ enough to do the job properly. In this case, we got generous helpings and even had enough to stick with tradition and lick the bowl. I say ‘we’ but you know that never happens when you’ve got an 8 yo in tow!
At £12 a kit, this is really good value and I’d highly recommend doing this.
