Hi, Welcome to Kid Fun. A place to share ideas of games and activities to play with children. Never hear them utter the words, 'I'm bored' ever again! Come and write for us and you will get a share of the revenue made, plus it's really fun.

You can consider this chocolate melting pot as the equivalent of either a piggy bank or a swear jar, depending on how you want to use it.
The idea is is that you break off loads of rand pieces of chocolate from different bars, put them in a jar, melt them together, and get a blast of different flavours.
If it is used as a piggy bank, then all the kids need to do, is save their last piece of chocolate from every bar they have, and deposit in the jar until they have enough. If you use it as a swear jar, then you can confiscate their chocolate when they behave badly, put it in the jar, and allow them to have a melting adventure when they have been good again.
Tea light & stand
Jar with lid
A variety of different chocolate
Fruit & nuts (optional)
Collect lots of different types of chocolate. It can be dark, milk white, cheap or high quality. I used Montezuma's Adam & Eve, Dairy Milk, drinking chocolate, and supermarket brands.
Break off pieces and fill the jar.
Put a tea light under a stand and light it with a match.
Put the jar on the stand, and allow the chocolate to melt. Use a spoon to stir occasionally.
You can then eat the melted chocolate off the spoon or dip in fruit and nuts.
You can let the remaining chocolate cool once you have finished, and it will create an interesting mottled shape.
You can continue to top up the jar with more chocolate and repeat the process.
