11th November 2016

By Jennifer Watts

Mum, Wife, Gadget Lover & Foodie


I’m still a bit sore about Cadbury's stopping making their chocolate coins at Christmas. I hate the cheap quality of the other types of coins you can buy, so I thought I’d do better making them myself. The Golden coin maker doesn’t come with chocolate, so you can use whichever chocolate you like the most and you’ll know you’re going to get a coin that tastes good. I’m partial to a bit of Galaxy myself but we found that using those small chocolate buttons was better because they melted faster. I tell people I bought this for my daughter, but really I bought it for me! It’s not perfect, but it gets the job done.

Unboxing

I was a bit disappointed when I first opened the box because you don’t really get much stuff in it really, but it’s not too bad if you think of this as a golden coin starter pack. It gives you everything you need to have a go (except the chocolate of course). I’d definitely recommend buying the refill pack that comes with more foil wrappers, some extra moulds, a few more designs, and some more bags. It’s only cheap (I think I got mine for a couple of Pound) so it’s worth it. You can just use regular kitchen foil to wrap the chocolates if you want to, but for the proper gold coin experience, you really need the real wrappers.

Ease of Use

The box says the Golden Coin Maker is for 6+, and I think this is probably about right. I know it might seem like a good present for younger kids who love chocolate, but honestly the process of making chocolate coins isn’t quite as fun as eating them! It works brilliantly, but there are a few bits that are quite fiddly, and obviously there’s a bit of waiting around for the chocolate to melt and then cool.

I was impressed though that my daughter (who’s 5) didn’t lose interest at all while we were making our first batch of coins. I even found it a good way to teach her about solids and liquids so I felt good about myself buying her an educational toy! She was a bit bummed that she couldn’t eat the coins straight away and that she had to leave them to cool, but she’s old enough to understand and be OK with that.

I think the best advice is to pretty much ignore the lengthy instructions that come with it. There’s more than 30 steps and it just makes the whole thing seem overly complicated and a bit regimented. It’s melting chocolate, putting it into a mould, cooling it, then wrapping it. It’s not rocket science!

Any Good?

I know a few people who have the Golden Coin Maker and haven’t been very fond of it. I like ours, and our daughter has had a lot of fun making her own chocolate coins. As long as you’re not expecting them to look exactly like they do in the shops, and you’re not expecting results in 30 seconds, then I don’t see why you wouldn’t like this. As far as I’m concerned, a slightly misshapen golden coin made from good quality chocolate is better than a perfectly formed coin made from that cheap stuff they use these days! This is a nice little gift, it makes for a great rainy day activity, and leaves you with some tasty treats.
