You're sure doing a good job of keeping our interest up in making these. I need to dig out my ingredients and recipes again and give it another shot. In class, we were told to use the organic fair trade brands of cocoa like Trader Joe's sells. And I bought some of the gel food colorings as suggested.
So. How many did you screw up first? My first batch went in the trash.

I try! :>

Yeah when I was shopping for the coco I was really wishing I had a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods in town! I did manage to find a good one, from Scharffen Berger that I'm super happy with.

I only had 2 trays that I actually had to toss. (I get about 4 trays per batch). The rest were varying levels of not-so-great but still eatible. At least my family didn't complain about them. :>

Yes, Scharffenberger was one of the chocolates they also recommended.
Sadly mine weren't even worth trying to eat, unless you like gummy bears.
