In the Kitchen

So, what's a girl to do when you can't buy chocolate in Honduras? And - what's a girl to do when she has 40 kids every week that come to Kids Club, and she needs play-dough for all of them? Well - make them of course!

Our friends who live up in the mountains of Honduras brought us some nibs. What are nibs you may ask? Well - it's what you need as the primary ingredient for making chocolate. So, after much grinding, chopping, adding ingredients, we ended up with some amazing Dark Chocolate! We actually made two types - one sugarfree, lactose free, the other good old fashioned butter/milk dark chocolate! We all enjoyed it for our after dinner treat!

Play-dough IS available in La Ceiba, but it is expensive, and for the vast quantities I was going to need - not feasable to purchase. So - I broke out the flour, salt, and food coloring and went to work making 40 bags (two colors each) of play dough for our Kids Club - and of course - did the lesson on the Potter and the Clay. A big success.
