A thoroughly worthless pursuit Mmmm…. 36 steps including waiting for warm water to melt the chocolate plus 15-20 minutes in the fridge to cool. So far I haven’t managed to get a decent embossing result either, and I’m actually rather capable so heaven help those who aren’t. And when you’ve finished you can “bag `em” can you? Righty ho, but you’ll be a long time filling a bag when you have to repeat every stage, including waiting for melting and cooling, two coins at a time. Doesn’t sound like the great idea you thought this “machine” would be, does it? My recommendation is that you buy your children some nice superior, ready made chocolate coins from the shops and invest in a gift that is actually worthwhile. Oh, and you will be making your coins from silver kitchen foil sooner than you think, since the gold stuff supplied is only good for a handful. But it really saved my day to learn I could send off for more. I write facetiously because the marketing description for this “toy” seems to glibly gloss over its…

A great rainy day activity!! I was very worried about getting this after reading the reviews, but it was a toy that my little boy wanted really badly, so got it anyway.I have to say I am glad I did.I would higly recommend that you give up on the warm water melting method though (I think this must be what made everyone else give up completely) used it to melt 2 coins and it took about 10-15 mins then it wasn’t warm enough to melt anymore. JUST MELT THE CHOCOLATE IN THE MICROWAVE!! Once metled they only take a few mins to harden in the freezer. Whilst they are in the freezer get your foil cut and then the coins are very easily covered in foil and I think the impressions with the stamper are pretty good too. I think the people who say they aren’t must have left the coins in the freezer too long!!My son is only 4 and a half and very active and he didn’t lose intertest at all, in fact he was so proud of himself he didn’t want to stop until there was no chocolate left!But I should point out that…
