You guys are all incredibly helpful. I'm really grateful.
I think it has to be a hobby for now since I dont know what in the world I'm doing. I just really want to give my family chocolates at Christmas time. 🎄
It would be really nice to do for work. Our cottage laws in Utah just got changed to be a lot less rigid. It would be very possible for me to sell at farmers markets and street fairs just with stuff made at home. But I need to make sure I can actually do it first! I'm not bad at caramels or fudge, but I've yet to ever try tempering.
What's really getting me is the chocolate. I got some callebaut because it seemed to be pretty common, but the price is taking the fun out of it. I feel like I can't mess up or make mistakes.
I delved a little into the packaging costs and to get what I would want is outrageous. I've read several of the threads here and that seems to be the norm. Has anyone used Bell Printers before? They're based in India (I think) and I just love their designs.
So it looks like I'll need:
Maybe one kind of the colored cocoa butter
And some will power
I think I've got everything else
Wish me luck? 😁🎉
