Glee Gum Make Your Own Chocolate Kit Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED

Hey everyone! My next review is for Glee Gum. Glee Gum is a great company that not only has great gum but also awesome make your own candy kits. You may remember way back when I did a review of their Make Your Own Gummies Kit and you can check out that review here.

This time I chose the Make Your Own Chocolate Kit. I read a few other reviews of this particular kit and I heard it was really fun and cool and I mean who doesn't love chocolate?

They also had two cacao beans in the kit so you can taste what they really taste like without all the extra ingredients and it was pretty cool, kind of plain but you can taste were the beginning of the chocolate flavor comes from which is really cool.

I really, really liked the kit, I never knew how easy it is to make chocolate as long as you have the ingredients. Because this was super easy and fun! All you need, pretty much, is a microwave. You melt the cocoa butter and mix all the ingredients together, well most of them.

The hardest, or at least most intimidating part, is adding the starter crystals. You stick a little thermometer sticker on the bowl and wait for 94 degrees to light up. The instructions are the most intimidating part saying just wait for it to light up it will happen, it's not broken, etc. It has to be 94 degrees or else it will be too hot or too cold for the crystals to work. But they were right and it lit up 94 degrees and you mix in the starter crystals. The starter crystals are there to make sure the chocolate "tempers" properly. While you're waiting for it to temper you can add peanut butter, nuts, or whatever to the mix, I didn't just because I like chocolate just as it is.

Then you just pour them into the little candy wrappers. Put it in the fridge for a bit and eat!

I really liked the taste of it, it was not a milk chocolate and almost a dark chocolate. I love dark chocolate and I really liked this. I guess though because the wrappers looked like Reeses I was expecting the chocolate to be softer but they were hard chocolate pieces. Totally fine with me though because one little piece really hit my sweet spot. They were so good! I wish I could make more except add some nuts to the mix!

Overall, it was a lot of fun making this chocolate and my roommates and I really enjoyed the outcome. The pieces were really delicious! Perfect fun thing to do for a rainy day or a boring day, too! Definitely check it out, especially if you love chocolate!
