Ever since reading Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and visiting Hershey Park, Harris has developed a fascination with chocolate- specifically, making chocolate. So he was thrilled to receive a chocolate making kit from my sister and her family for Christmas.
It was especially fun for him (and Grace) to see the cacao bean. We have read about these beans a lot but it was really wonderful to hold, smell and taste the bean.
The kit comes with everything you need to make chocolate including a stick on thermometer to get the chocolate to the right temperature for tempering.
When all the steps are followed you are left with some delicious chocolate to enjoy!
