GleeGum.com Review and Giveaway

Gleegum is a very cool website. It offers kits to make your own gum, gummies, and chocolate! Each kit offers history about the item that you are making.

I picked the make your own chocolate kit. Some facts about the kit:
Mixing elements of chemistry with world culture and history, this delicious kit contains everything you'll need to make 8 ounces of dark chocolate. Can be made on the stove or with a microwave - adult supervision is recommended! Great for class room activities, scout troops, birthday parties, home school, or after school. Makes a great gift for kids (ages 8 & up)!

Inside each Make Your Own Chocolate Kits you'll find: organic cocoa butter, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, starter crystals, a temperature indicator, paper candy liners, instructions, and the story of chocolate.

All you have to do is melt the cocoa butter, add the cocoa powder and sugar. Stir, stir, stir until it cools to the right temperature; add the starter crystals so that the chocolate "tempers," and enjoy delicious home-made chocolate from scratch! By the way, you also get some cacao beans - we thought you might like to taste a few.




It was a really fun project to do and was very easy to make! You follow all the instructions and then fill the paper cups with chocolate and let them sit in the fridge to harden. The chocolate wasn't very sweet, but it was still edible. It was very cool because when the chocolate had hardened it really looked like candy that you bought at the store, or that came in a box of chocolates! Very neat. I would like to try to the gummy kits too, I bet they would be good :)
