CHOC chick kit review and a giveaway

Just before Christmas we were sent a Choc Chicos kit to review. I took the pack up to my Grandma's and, the day before Christmas Eve, the children and I set about making chocolates. The pack is bright and appealing and the children loved the idea that we were making little chocolates. We followed the instructions and chose to add some raisins into the little cases. The only thing I would mention is that the mixture is quite warm and I wasn't happy with the children mixing it because I thought it was a bit too hot. However, they helped me spoon the mixture into the cases and carefully carry them to pop them in the freezer. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the finished product because they disappeared too quickly!



What they say
Making chocolate at home is super easy and fun! This CHOC Chicos chocolate making kit includes everything you will need to make CHOCalicious raw chocolates that are free from dairy, gluten, eggs, soya, additives, E-numbers and processed sugars (oh and absolutely no wiggly worms or squiggly spiders!)

Inside you will find:
50g organic cocoa powder, 50g organic cocoa butter, 100ml Sweet Freedom (natural low GL sweetener made 100% from fruit), 20 mini cases to fill with delicious raw chocolate goodness, a simple recipe booklet with more fun facts about chocolate and even a few cocoa beans straight from our cocoa trees (some say they might be magic beans!).
Good points
Really easy to make
Low in fat
Absolutely delicious

Bad points
It was quite warm so I didn't feel comfortable letting the children stir the mixture. They did spoon it into the cases though.

Would I buy it?
Definitely. The chocolate tastes fantastic and is very easy to make. They chocolates would make a wonderful gift for friends or family, or even just for yourself! Have a look at the full range on CHOC Chick's website.
