You can’t spell “fundraising” without C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E
OK, maybe you can. But you shouldn’t, really.
Well, in addition to asking all y’all to donate, my friend Kim, who has decided to join me in playing this crazy 10-day long hockey game, came up with the brilliant idea of making chocolates to sell as a fundraiser! But not just any kind of chocolates. Oh no, these are very special chocolates, as they are chocolates in the form of hockey sticks and pucks!
Since Kim and I will be staffing a booth at the Non-Profit Expo at the Northern Voice conference on Saturday, we figured that would be a good place to start selling such chocolates! And thus, on Sunday, we spent the afternoon making them!
We started out with 8 kgs of chocolate – some dark, some milk, and even some white1:
And not just any chocolate. Callebaut chocolate. Mmm, Calleabautlicious!
Look at how freaking creamy and delicious that looks when it’s melted down:
Next we poured it into the molds2:
And after some chillin’, we got these babies:
And then repeat that 64 times!
Here is just a part of what we ended up making (there were more in Kim’s downstairs freezer):
So, if you are going to be at the Northern Voice conference, be sure to stop by our booth and buy a chocolate hockey stick or ten!
