GLEE Make Your Own Candy Kits Giveaway: Christmas Gathering & Gift Guide Day 15

logo I’ve heard of GLEE Gum before but had no idea that they had a fun selection of Make Your Own Candy Kits!chocolate Kit Ingredients


Now, I know this was an activity for my boys so I thought the Chocolate Kit would fit me our family the best.


IMG_4272Doodle helped me out with the Chocolate Kit from beginning to almost the end. I wanted him to read the history of chocolate with me and test the cacao bean. Oh, that was so gross, but it was funny to watch his reaction. We did it to his brother & friend. tee hee hee





IMG_4273Then we set about mixing the ingredients. Pretty quick and simple. The part that took the longest was the mixing. Let me warn you that when it says it could take 15 minutes of continuous stirring, they mean it!!


I sat at the computer stirring and stirring thinking I was off my rocker to believe the instructions, but guess what? They’re right! Go figure.IMG_4274 It HAS to hit the right temperature. I believe it was 92 degrees.


Then we set about putting it into the individual candy wrappers. We I filled up nearly all the wrappers since I was abandoned by Doodle for a movie. Then they were stuck in the fridge to hardened.





I was a bit cynical as to how it would taste. I mean, come on, it’s out of a box. I was supremely surprised at how fantastic these chocolates have tasted. They seem to be more on the dark chocolate side, but not so much that I won’t eat it. Trust me, I don’t willingly eat dark chocolate.


IMG_4561 Now, about the photo, there should be a LOT more candies on the plate. As in spilling off the plate there were so many, but I forgot to take a photo by the time they hardened. I’ve been eating them here and there (or all the time depending on who you ask).


The Make Your Own Chocolate Kit cuts the mustard with me!
