This is not a sponsored review and because of this I won’t mention where I bought this set, if you do an online search using the name of this kit you’ll be able to find this one in several webshops.
Heart – Oekaki Stick 2 – Simple
Price: ± €4
Extra supplies: Scissors, Spoon, Refrigerator, Microwave*, Heatproof Bowl or Cup
* Instead of melting the chocolate in the microwave you could heat it au bain-marie, with a heatproof glass bowl on top of a pan with a small layer of boiling water. Stir gently until all of the chocolate has melted.
With this kit you create a cute chocolate lollipop and a small chocolate. You create a pattern on these using the pink, yellow, green and blue chocolate candies that are in the package as well. This is a newer version of this kit, the main difference appears to be the colours of the chocolate candies and the different patterns you get to use. The end of the stick also has a different pattern than before, there are several available and you get one at random.
These were just as tasty as I remembered from the previous version, so I don’t think the flavour changed much at all. They might’ve made tiny recipe changes, but these weren’t noticeable for me.
The milk chocolate was nice and creamy and the chocolate candies had a sugary outer shell that gave it a little bite and a chocolate filling.
Time needed: ⧗
You can take as little or as much time as you’d like to create your patterns, if you follow the ones in the packaging it doesn’t have to take long to make these at all.
Difficulty level: ★
All the steps of this kit, and there aren’t many, are very simple. There isn’t much that can go wrong other than moving the mould too much so the chocolate candies move, or not waiting long enough for the chocolate to set.
As you can see the end result is very similar to the picture on the box. If the chocolate candies moved then the pattern might not be as clear in some places, but this mainly depends on how careful you are when handling the mould.
TIP: You can use a spoon to fill the mould, but if you’re afraid that’ll get messy you could use a piping bag or sandwich bag instead.
Want to enjoy this kit again?
Clean the mould with warm water, after using it, and let it air dry. Don’t use soap to clean the mould.
If you want to reuse the mould you could use any kind of chocolate you’d like to use. You could replace the chocolate candies with sugar pearls, but you could also leave them out. The mould could of course also be used to make gummies or shape fondant if you want to use it for something like that.
