Make-A-Bar Chocolate Factory - Review!!

We love chocolate here....We have never made our own chocolate bars before....That was until the weekend! We were sent a couple of the Make-A-Bar Chocolate Factory Kits to try out....


Make-A-Bar Chocolate Factory uses 100% Belgian chocolate, for a really tasty ‘home-made’ treat! Simple and easy to use, Make-A-Bar Chocolate Factory comes complete with all the ingredients you need to make your yummy chocolate bar. The possibilities really are endless with this craft kit!
 
In the kit you get Dark, White & Milk Belgian chocolate, a re-useable activity tray, eight stencils to choose from and an instruction leaflet.


You put the packets of chocolate in a bowl of warm water to melt them which only took a couple of minutes....While they were melting my girls chose a stencil each....Ellie chose the word "EPIC" and Becky chose some lips....We stuck the stencils to the bottom of the plastic tray cut the corner of the sachet with the dark chocolate and the girls got on making their masterpieces....

The instructions were easy to understand and Becky could have quite easily made this without my help....Ellie needed a little assistance....


They then filled in the white bits with the white chocolate and used the milk chocolate to totally cover their designs....They then left it to set in the fridge for about half an hour.....


The end results were fantastic! I was very impressed....I think we will have to have a go at making more of these....The bars must have tasted great to the girls because they were gone in seconds....I managed to have the tiniest taste and it did taste pretty amazing....

These kits cost £3.99 and are suitable for children over 4 years old.....There isn't anything that could harm younger children it would just be quite fiddly for them....These would make a great rainy day activity and they would be great to give someone as a gift....This is something I would definitely use again....The girls said they loved it too and already want to make more....

I was sent the Make-A-Bar Chocolate Factory kit free of charge for the purpose of this review....This is my honest review....All thoughts and opinions are my own!!

  17. These look brilliant - your girls have done a great job with designing their chocolate bars. Love the sound of this and the chocolate sounds like it was very yummy given the speed at which it disappeared! :-)
