It’s a fun day out to have with your friends or come on your own and meet new people who share your love of chocolate!
What you’ll learn…
The Chocolate Journey
In class, you’ll learn all about where chocolate comes from, how it’s processed commercially and then see how it’s made in small batches by artisan chocolatiers the world over using a stone grinder.
The chocolate they make and use in class is all natural, plant based and free from refined sugars.
Tempering chocolate is what gives it the shine and snap we all know and love.
It also makes it more shelf stable – meaning it won’t melt in your hand.
They’ll show you how to easily temper chocolate, so you can do it at home.
An absolute classic in the world of chocolate treats!
They’ll show you a quick and very easy way to make the bounty filling, form them into little balls, cover them in dark chocolate and roll them in chopped almonds.
These are seriously good and taste just like Bounty Bars minus the glucose syrup, emulsifiers and dairy.
Chocolate Covered Stuffed Medjool Dates
These are a fantastic treat to make any time of year!
You can use any variety of soft date; the filling can easily be changed by simply swapping a few ingredients and you can choose whether you dip them in chocolate or not.
They also have a great shelf life, which makes them an ideal addition to a chocolate selection box.
These truffles are so easy to make and only have 2 ingredients!
You can change this base recipe by switching out the nut/seed butter and shade of chocolate you use.
Of course, they can add freeze dried fruits, spices and essentials oils to make these pop with originality!
This is another place where you can choose to either dip them in tempered chocolate or easy chocolate coating.
They’ll cover various easy finishing techniques to make your chocolates beautiful, without having to spend loads of time in the kitchen.
Learn A New Craft
Unlike some crafts, chocolate making can be done at home using a few easy to find tools and some good quality chocolate.
In fact, as you’ll see in this class, you can even make your own artisan chocolate at home.
Whether that interests you or not, you can still take your newfound skills and embark on a creative journey that’s also very tasty!
Take What You Make
You’ll take home a box of what they make in the class, which typically ends up being a nice little chocolate haul.
All the chocolates they make in class will keep for several weeks…. if you can resist for that long!
All chocolates are dairy, wheat, gluten and refined sugar free.
10 people maximum. All abilities welcome.
