Meiji DIY Apollo Chocolate Kit Review

Posted on


Today I’m sharing my experience with Meiji’s DIY Apollo Chocolate Kit. I was excited to try it out, especially because the candy looks so cute.

The kit includes three tubes with different chocolate flavors: normal, white, and strawberry. It also contains a mold and little stirrer.

Before you start, put the chocolate tubes in hot water. You need the paste to be as soft as possible for the best results. The chocolate cools up quickly so I put it back in the water after using it every time. Just make sure to have the opening facing up.

I thought the stirrer was mostly for mixing the flavors or pushing the candy beads, and it wasn’t until halfway through that I realized it was useful to spread the chocolate evenly in the molds. I wish I had noticed it earlier as my results would have turned out better. So, use the stirrer to fill any empty spots you notice through the transparent mold.

Layering flavors is a lot of fun, but be careful because the chocolate gets hard quick. Make sure you’re getting it to look how you want as you’re layering it, before it gets hard.

Something else you should know early on: there’s more candy balls than it seems! So, get as creative as you want with the candy. I even used some of it to spell an “S” in the bottom of one.

Once you finish layering chocolate and adding beads, let it harden. Even though it hardens quickly, I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes, just in case.

From the results, you can tell that I had a clumsy start, but I think the candy still turned out super cute. I was sad to eat it afterwards, because it was so pretty, but it tasted so good that it didn’t last long!

This kit is available from Tofu Cute. I hope you can use these tips to learn from my experience and create perfectly cute candy when you try them out.
