What Can I Expect

We love choc, so this deluxe chocolate making offer is a cocoa-filled winner of an experience for all chocoholics. This fun workshop gives you the chance to pipe, shape, coat and create your own chocolates. What's more, it's socially distanced too. Count us in!

When you arrive at the Manchester, Birmingham or Leeds hotel venues, you'll be greeted by the expert chocolatier, who'll explain how everything is going to work. Each household or social bubble will be assigned a specific workstation, with all the ingredients, utensils and things like disposable aprons and gloves all ready for you.

Your host will have even prepared some tasty chocolate covered delights for each table, laid out ready for you to tuck into. As you're enjoying your treats, you'll hear a little more about the chocolate making process from bean to bar. It's fascinating and you might be surprised to hear that cocoa and chocolate is no new thing - we've been loving it in various forms for centuries!

After the chat, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. You will be using good quality 65% cocoa dark chocolate to create Belgian truffles by hand. Once you've made the ganache, you'll turn to cutting, rolling, dipping and decorating with desiccated coconut, cocoa, icing or tempered chocolate.

As this is the Deluxe workshop, you'll be making a decent quantity of chocolates. Even with sampling a few of your creations as you go, the most fervent chocoholic won't get through all the truffles you'll have made. Expect to have between 30 and 50 chocs that you can take home and offer as gifts or just scoff by yourself!

It's also worth noting that these workshops can be adapted to suit vegans, vegetarians and those with lactose intolerance, using soya cream rather than dairy cream. All other ingredients are gluten free and chocolate can be Kosher if required. Just let the team know when booking your date.

And finally, we know it sounds cheesy, but this chocolate making offer won't be around forever, so if you fancy a couple of hours creating, coating and packaging deluxe Belgian truffles, grab this special deal now.

An enjoyable afternoon. Well presented, organised and the end product taste great. I thought the offer I got price wise was reasonable but not sure at full price. Would also have been nice to have made some with the flavourings she mentioned you could add from various essences.

A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. A great activity for parents/children or partners to enjoy together and best of all we got to take home some lovely home made truffles!

A well taught class, good fun, and a delicious product to take home. Just a shame that so few of the people in the class were willing to volunteer to assist with the demonstrations (good job I was there!)

This was a very enjoyable experience. Great for family, friends and couples. You get to make around 30 Belgian truffles each from scratch and even decorate them in cute little bags with ribbons at the end. The experience does involve using dark chocolate, so if you are not a fan you may not like the taste of the end product. However I found them delicious. A nice day out which you could complete with a meal in Birmingham or even a nice stay over in the Novotel hotel where the class is held.
