Homemade Candy Bars

This is a fun activity for kids. Line a small cookie sheet or plates with wax paper. You will need one Hershey's chocolate bar per child. Let the kids break their candy bar into pieces. In a microwave safe bowl microwave the chocolate until melted. For about 20-30 seconds at a time on half power. Stir in between. Then let the kids pick toppings to stir into their chocolate. When they are done let them pour their chocolate mixture onto the cookie sheet lined with wax paper. They can pour the chocolate to make shapes if they want. My kids wanted to put more toppings on after they poured the mixture onto the wax paper. Put in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes or until the chocolate has set. My kids had a lot of fun making these and loved eating them.

Here are the finished products. My son made a cookie and my daughter made a butterfly.


Here are some mix-in ideas:

Chocolate chips (white, milk chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch)
Mini-marshmallows
Peanuts, walnuts or almonds
Toffee bits
Rice Krispies
M&M's (regular size or minis)
Coconut

It is prudent to make broad examination of online banks with the goal that you locate an individual auto advances at aggressive rate, regardless of the fact that you have an imperfect record. These moneylenders don't more often than not asylum an advance to terrible credit individuals. payday loans
