Okay. WTF are these? Mushrooms? Icebergs? The verdict is still out on what these actually are but we settled for mushrooms because we’re used to seeing those in the Korean grocery store. Which might I add are addictive and delicious so beware.
We seem to be on a make your own stuff kick lately which I personally enjoy because I love arts and crafts and all types of exciting hands on activities. Glitter! Glue! Construction paper! Get me an empty toilet paper roll and ten pounds of feathers so I can form it into a replica of my dog immediately! If you can’t tell yet, it’s Martina here. Simon has been indulging my arts and crafts love lately, so watch him struggle with the finer art of pressing chocolate out of a tiny tube in this video.
Honestly I was skeptical about this kit because I’ve had a lot of bad luck with getting chocolate out of their moulds when it comes in a cheap kit. If I’m making it at home with silicon trays they are perfect, but the cheap kits sometimes mega suck. This, however, was not one of those. Even though the chocolate sauce didn’t taste like high quality stuff, it was actually very fun to make and hardened up really nicely. I’m starting to think of hacks to work on with it like using different cookie sticks or even a Peppero/Pockey stick! Maybe even hide a tiny nut in there. Oh yeah! I think this would be a great activity for kids and also giant kids such as Martina and Simon. Has anyone else tried this little kit before? If you know any other Korean tiny food making kits let me know because I mostly seem to find Japanese ones.
