Making our own chocolate

Class 7 have made chocolate..yes we have made chocolate!

We wanted to be like Willy Wonka and make our own so we collected the utensils we would need and then gathered the ingredients: cocoa butter, cocoa powder, coconut oil and honey.

Each group also had a different ingredient to add to their chocolate; biscuits, cranberries, raisins and marshmallows.

We blended the butter and oil together to soften it and then Mrs Rowe melted it on a small hob.

Then we added the cocoa powder which turned the mixture brown.

 

Next we added our own ingredient, mixed them together and transferred each of them to a baking tin.

 

The mixture was then put in the fridge for an hour until they had set.

Our very own handmade from Fairtrade ingredients…delicious.
