Sweet Education

This year, some of the youth sold candy as a fundraiser for an upcoming missions trip. There’s a lot of work involved, but it is fun… and educational!

Here’s what I learned from chocolate molding:

1. When you lose your temper, cool off a bit and try again. (

2. You can re-melt chocolate that has gotten cold and hardened, but you can’t re-use chocolate that has gotten too hot and burnt. Avoid burnout. (

3. Sometimes, you just need to let things chill. (

4. Mistakes are just as tasty as the perfect pieces!
