Create your own Chocolate with Cadbury Inventor

Create your own Chocolate


Over the summer holidays the normal daily routine for us all goes out of the window and we tend to embrace the moment as well as indulge in a few treats a long the way. We love to bake and get creative and naturally my boys love chocolate (as do I) and I still have memories of baking chocolate cakes and brownies with my mother and it's something I like to do now as a family as it's a chance for all of us to get a little creative as well as experiment with different flavours.

I know at one point or another we all wished that we could own our own chocolate factory and have a go at making our own mad-capped inventions while now you can have the chance with Cadbury Inventor which is a fun interactive website that allows you to create your own Cadbury Dairy Milk with the chance of it being made into a real Limited Edition Cadbury Dairy Milk bar. There are over 90,000 possible combinations which means you can get as crazy and weird as you want with flavour combo such as popping candy, mixed berries, cashews or even spicy chilly and fiery mustard, the options really are limitless. Each participant can submit up to three of their favourite flavours with the chance to become one of three finalists whose creations will be sold in stores, just imagine that!




So while I personally would go for something fairly safe like pecans and cranberries I thought we would mix it up a little more and include the whole family on this important decision making so after plenty of debating and going back and forth we decided on Apricots, Cornflakes and sprinkles which I'm not really surprised by as it's a combination of some of our favourite things right now, but how they would work together? I thought it would be a fun idea to make our digital dream Cadbury Dairy Milk bar come a reality by melting down a bar of Cadbury and use some of our heart shaped moulds and see what they come out like. It was fun and a nice simple summer craft, all you have to do is pick up a chocolate bar, melt it down and add your chosen additional extras, we simply popped the apricots and cornflakes into my small processor, whizzed them around and added it to the melted chocolate topped with sprinkles. Admittedly we didn't make as many as we thought we would as chocolate was definitely consumed along the way.

While the apricot and cornflake combo made for an interesting and slightly crunchy texture the boys wolfed them down and declared their creation the best! If you don't feel like going through the mess though, go wild online with the inventor page then make sure you do it before the 31st July to be in a chance of your creation being made into a real Cadbury Dairy Milk bar.

  5. Oh the possibilities. I think I would have to have fudge pieces, mint choice chips and some jelly sweets included in mine.

  7. Thank you for the reminder - we saw this at Cadbury World and I had completely forgotten all about it. What I mixed there was amazing so fingers crossed they like my idea.

  8. That's such a good idea. I usually steer away from baking but as this doesn't involve much I think I'll try it out with my son this summer. It's a great activity to get kids involved with!
