10 STEPS TO MAKING CHOCOLATE
- Send out notice to parents for ingredients. I like to use www.signupgenius.com. I will add a list of ingredients! (I recommend 1 bag of chocolate per 3 students)
- The morning of making the chocolate, bring a crockpot, spatula, wooden spoon, and serving spoon.
- Melt the chocolate chips on low. Stir occasionally. We were drooling from the smell of melted chocolate!!
- Set up the other ingredients in bowls around a table with a spoon for serving.
- Cut paper approximately 2 inches by 4 inches for labels.
- Prepare the foil. Tear approximately 2 ft per student and fold it over once.
- Tear out another piece of foil approximately 4 inches.
- Write each students’ name on a quart sized baggie.
1. Create and color a unique label for your candy bar. Set aside.
2. Students need to use the foil to create a shape of their choice leaving a hole to pour ingredients.
3. An adult will put your foil on a paper plate and place a scoop of creamy chocolate in the foil.
4. Next, fill your foil with your choice of ingredients!
RICE KRISPIES, M&M’S, MARSHMALLOWS, GUMMY BEARS, OREO PIECES,
TOFFEE PIECES, SPRINKLES, CARMEL PIECES, ANY OTHER CANDIES!
(I TRY TO AVOID NUTS AND PEANUT BUTTER.)
5. Then, stir ingredients together with a plastic spoon.
6. Take the smaller piece of foil and seal the opening.
How do I keep children from tasting? I let them taste! I usually have so many ingredients. I tell them ahead of time to keep their plates and spoons so I can give them some warm chocolate with ingredients left over to taste! Happy chocolate makers!!!!!
