Hello! For today’s’ review, we made a chocolate candy kit. This DIY Candy Kit is of Heart brand in Japan. We got this from a good friend of mine who is base in Japan. This is together with another DIY kit that we reviewed he last time, Soft Ramune Candy Kit. I am so excited about this because, this is my first chocolate kit that we made.
As I previously lectured Oekaki is a Japanese word that refers to an act of drawing a picture which comes from three Japanese word/prefix お: O which is a formal prefix, 絵: E which means picture, and 描き: KAKI which means to draw. This kit is like a pixel art type do-it-yourself kit candy. You make designs and picture using the stuffs included in the kit. AS other Japanese kits available, they can only be bought straight from Japan. People who sell this kind of kits still import them in Japan. I believe there are also box subscription which offers Japanese candies and other stuff which you can subscribe monthly.
Looking at the package, we have a hint that it will be very easy to make. Surprisingly, we didn’t get confused on what are we going to do with it. Even if the packaging is in total Japanese characters, and obviously we cannot read Japanese the picture instructions are very clear and doable.
What is inside the pack:
The Heart Oekaki Stick Chocolate DIY Candy Kit comes with:
- Pattern Card – it is a cardboard with print. This is where we place the Tray Mould to trace the pattern in it. We got the “Strawberry” pattern for the big stick and the “Ribbon” pattern for the small stick. The color dots on the prints represents the sugar balls that are also included in the pack.
- Sugar Balls – There are three (3) sugar candy packets included in this kit. They are in the form of balls made of sugar but in three different colors (green, orange and pink). The taste are all the same sugary like.
- Tray Mould – it has two moulds, one for the small stick and the other for the big one. This will be used to form the chocolate that will be poured to form the chocolate stick.
- Chocolate block – the base of this candy. Chocolate is in form of block which will be then heated to make into liquid and be poured into the moulds.
- Tweezers and sticks – it comes with a cute tweezers, which you can fold to use in picking up the sugar balls into the mould. Sticks are going to be the holder of the chocolates like lollipop.

The taste: The texture of the chocolate is smooth, yummy milky chocolate at melts in your mouth. It doesn’t taste too sweet even the sugar balls, which all the left overs was eaten by my daughter. Overall, my experience with Heart Oekaki Stick Chocolate is fun! We would definitely consider trying this again. It is very easy to do. No experience needed and the chocolate is yummy! BTW, if you are having second thoughts in making this because you don’t have a microwave oven to heat the chocolate block, don’t be. I also don’t have microwave oven, I only have convection oven but I didn’t use it too. Instead, I boiled water, pour it in a bowl, and heat my chocolate bar in a plastic container in it. Or if you are use to baking, you use a double broiler, or a bowl over the boiling water to heat your chocolate block into liquid state.
I hope I did a well judgement on this product. And I hope to post some more of these in the near future. I hope you enjoyed and leaned in reading my post. Good day!
