An Occasional Chocolate-Review and Giveaway!




Here's a giveaway for all you chocolate lovers out there! An Occasional Chocolate sent me their Kids Candy Making Kit for review, and boy did we have fun with it! This kit comes with supplies for Heart Suckers, Koala Suckers, and Dipped Oreo Cookies (we haven't made these yet...that will be our next project!). The kit came with easy-to-follow directions, and the suckers turned out great! They looked professionally made, and tasted delicious too! I made some extras to give some kids at our Church, and they really enjoyed them as well.

An Occasional Chocolate sells all kinds of chocolate making supplies, kits, instructional books and dvds, and more!

"Chocolate candy making is an art form. Who doesn't adore indulging in the occasional truffle? Most of us will pay at least twenty dollars for a few delectable truffles, but they don't have to be expensive. Chocolate candy making is so easy to learn. You'll find candy making has never been as easy as it is using our many mouth-watering recipes. Making chocolate candy may be an art, but with An Occasional Chocolate, this art is easy for folks of all ages.
