Confession time: I always get unreasonably excited when I see Kracie has released new candy kits. So much so, that after binge-watching people make the new ones on Youtube, I may have impulse ordered a few. Today I’m reviewing the Pokotto Colorful Chocolate Kit, which was the first of the bunch to arrive.
The kit comes with the mold, one pack of multicolor strawberry chocolate pieces, one pack of chocolate pieces, and one pack of cookie crumbs. Illustrated instructions are included on the back so that it’s easy to understand what to do right away. You will need a 500-watt microwave to melt the chocolate for this one.
One fun thing about this kit is that there are several you can get, and the mold you receive is a surprise. The penguin in mine was adorable!
You simply cut the mold in half, so that you have the actual mold and an insert to compact your chocolates with. Then you just start placing the chocolate bits however you want!
I placed the colored bits at the bottom and then placed the regular chocolate on top.
Once you get them to look the way you want, you just pop the mold in the microwave for 15 seconds, throw the cookie crumbs on top, and then use the other half of the mold to press down the chocolate.
Once the insert is pressed into the mold, you just pop it in the refrigerator for about an hour, and then they’re finished.
Here are my completed chocolates. I think they turned out really cute!
When it was time for the taste test, I will say I was less than impressed. I’m not a fan of strawberry chocolate, so in hindsight I probably should’ve made a couple that were regular chocolate. Oh well. At least they were cute!
I sometimes struggle with finding the time to sit down and do more step-heavy kits, so I was pleased overall with how simple but fun this one was. If you like strawberry chocolate or simple kits, then I think this would be a great pick. Even if you’re not a fan of the taste, this is a cute kit to make just for the fun of it.
You can purchase this kit from shops like napaJapan (JP), Tofu Cute (UK) and Japan Candy Store (HK). Let us know what you think if you try it out! You can also find more candy kit reviews in our archives.
