A dream gift for anyone with a sweet tooth and who loves fine Belgian Chocolate.
This chocolate filled day starts in the best possible way, with a chocolate fountain tasting session - you'll find yourself melting away to chocolate heaven as you dip and coat marshmallows and taste succulent chocolate covered strawberries.
As if that wasn't enough gourmet chocolate fun, you'll then learn all about what chocolate actually is - soon chocolate lab jargon like refining and conching, roasting, cracking and winnowing will all make sense and you'll know your Criollo from your Forastero cocoa beans.
Then it's over to you for the hands-on confectionery creation. You'll be enrobing your sweets in fine Belgian chocolate, then adding tasty toppings to produce your delicate, hand-made chocolates, gift-wrapped by you!
Using the finest raw ingredients to create your very own moulded chocolate, there's also plenty of opportunity to taste the results. By the end of your chocolate creating day, you should leave with between 30 and 50 chocs and flavoured truffles.
