Review: Chocolate Picture Maker from Magic Choc UK

We were recently sent this Chocolate Picture Maker kit from Magic Choc UK, so yesterday I suggested to Charlie (8) that we give it a go seeing as though we had a very quiet day indoors due to the weather.  Charlie is a chocolate fiend so I thought this would be right up his street!  The idea is that using the contents of kit you can create your very own chocolate bar, either using the stencils provided or you can use your imagination and create your own design.

This kit contains:

Enough chocolate to make 4 chocolate bars
Plastic activity trays
and of course instructions.

After choosing which design Charlie wanted to try first we simply sellotaped it to the bottom of one of the plastic trays provided.  One pouch of each different type of chocolate (milk, white and dark) then needed to be melted in warm water for a few minutes.  This was great as it didn't involve boiling water or microwaves...and no chance of being scalded.

Once the chocolate had been left for long enough to be smooth we had to take the dark chocolate first and snip a very small hole in the corner of the pouch.  He had to carefully follow the outline of the stencil, which surprisingly was quite easy for him to do.

Then we took the white chocolate pouch and filled in the outline.  You do not have to wait for the dark chocolate to set. 

Once that is done we took the milk chocolate and covered over the whole lot!  After a little bit of manipulation to get the milk chocolate evenly distributed in the tray we then popped it in the fridge for half an hour.  

Charlie and I were both chuffed with the results of our chocolate picture making and couldn't wait to get stuck into it...

I also was happy for Charlie to have the chocolate bar he made (well, a 1/4 of it as he had to share it with his Brother and Sisters) as all Magic Choc UK's chocolate is:

100% Belgian Chocolate
Gluten Free
Suitable for Vegetarians
and has no artificial flavourings, colours or preservatives.

Charlie was even more impressed when he lost a tooth whilst tucking into his chocolate as it meant the Tooth Fairy would be paying him a visit!

There are also lots of other stencils on the website for you to download and print too should you feel like it.

I actually really enjoyed doing this activity with Charlie as it was completely mess and fuss free, which I wasn't expecting.  We definitely give this product 5 out of 5 stars.

You can buy the Chocolate Picture Maker from The Entertainer Website for £4 for a 1 bar kit and £7 for a 2 bar kit.
