WTF – Chocolate Mushroom Maker

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.

  5. I love those “chocolate biscuit” shrooms. Our local Korean restaurant sells them. Whenever my daughter gets them, I sneak as many as she will let me :)

  6. This is not related to this video and I have no idea where to post it but what are your guys opinion on Zico’s “Tough Cookie” and how it uses a homophobic slur and the confederate flag?

  7. I have been eyeballing these ‘shrooms’ for a while now. I think I’m going to get them now. The standard package at least, I just want to shove it in without waiting for it. I was born ready for these chocolates.

  9. So the spudgy love in the background was quite distracting. Lol. I had to rewind a few times to actually hear what you guys were saying. Haha.

    These candy making vids look fun. Sadly I’m too lazy to make candy…I just wanna buy it and eat it and open the happy. HA! See what I did there…

  10. Hobby Lobby has those candy making ones that come with the popsicle sticks and different flavor chocolate, and cute little trays.

  11. Why was I not surprised when the first thing I saw in the EYK studio fridge is a big bottle of ranch. HAHAHA

  13. I suggest updating your WTF opening, I think Simon would look even more pirate-ty, which is totally a word (no it isn’t), with a beard. :)

  14. This is totally not related to the video, but are you guys coming home for the holidays? The last time you guys had your meet and greet in UofT I wasn’t able to go because I didn’t know when it was. Where do you post your announcements because I follow you on instagram and twitter but I didn’t see anything. (wow that sounds so stalkerish) haha!

    • Not this winter, no. We’ll be heading to Japan for a bit, I think for our vacation in January. Otherwise, we might be in Toronto in March.

      And, no, that wasn’t stalkerish at all :D

      • …Did I miss the announcement for Japan!? We are going to South Korea from Japan for a week in January.. I hope we don’t miss each other! We have to move back to the US in the spring. :(

  16. Simon sounded like an ajusshi finishing a glass of soju after he ate the sweet chocolate.

  17. Anyone ever tried to make their own Reese’s peanut butter cups? I thought I would use homemade (unsweetened) peanut butter, melted down some chocolate chips, layered them in a mini cupcake pan, and froze them bad boys. And oh man where they not good. First, I had to destroy each one just to get them out of the pan and then they tasted nothing like Reese’s peanut butter cups. A huge disappointment. Since then, I haven’t attempted to make anymore candy. However, this chocolate mushroom maker is completely adorable and has inspired me to try again! Thanks for sharing!

    • That actually sounded like it would work as a recipe. Hmm. Gotta try to find another way…

      • Right?! Like a more healthy, less guilty Reese’s cup. According to my sister, the super baker, you have to add a lot of powder sugar (or regular sugar and melt it down) to make it taste good. But I was thinking what if you started with really sweet chocolate, like the chocolate mushroom kit, and then a less sweet peanut butter? Not sure, but I might give it a shot. Though definitely not using a metal pan this time!

        • When you say you used a metal pan, do you mean you melted the chocolate in it? Chocolate should be melted either in the microwave (give it a few short blasts and mix it between them so it doesn’t burn), or in a bowl dipped in hot water. You should also use paper cups for easier peeling.
          I’m mostly repeating stuff I’ve learned from watching YouTube cooking channels (they’re so addicting!), you should try looking one up, popular snacks always have a ton of them.

  18. You’re going to need to re-record this, no matter how hard I try to concentrate my attention was always drawn to Spudgy. I particularly like the part where Leigh was giving him some love, and his little tail was wagging, made me like her ever more!

  19. You guys met Ann Reardon, right? She’s pretty much a chocolate wizard. You should check out her YT tutorials, especially the ones for truffles. She also made videos explaining what chocolate you should use when and how to make tempered chocolate at home which is extra relevant to what you said at the end of this vid.
    And while I’m recommending things, you should also check out Cooking with Dog (the dog is the chef, not the main dish!).

    • Yeah! We shot a video with Ann! She was super fun and wicked smart. Wish we could have hung out with her longer :)
