Experience the beauty of your own creations, creating the most tasty and desirable object of the lot - chocolate! The perfect gift for any choco-holic or chocolate lovers, as this great class will not only provide some delicious treats - but will teach for future reference how to make them! Learn how with a Chocolatier, who will be on hand to ensure your delightful little truffles and chocolates taste as good as they look with a mix of advice and practical demonstrations.

Your Chocolate Workshop will begin with an introduction to the history of Chocolate, tasting a range of delicious types including 'the fountain'! The chocolatier will start the session with creating some Truffles, which you can fill with a cream and other fillings - before decorating and testing other methods of creation that include: mixing, piping, rolling, cutting and dipping! The session will come to a close when you hand-wrap your beautiful little Truffle creations (around 30-50 of them), which you can take home and share (or keep them all to yourself!)

Perfect timing - just before Christmas, so could make these into unique handmade gifts.

Chocolate Workshop

This course has exceeded my expectations. It was excellent fun and I would highly recommend it! Upon completion, you will be able to start creating home-made truffles as presents for Birthday, Xmas or special occasions. They always look so delicate but yet are quite easy to make once you know how to do it.

Chocolate Workshop

Both my wife and I enjoyed taking part in the chocolate workshop. I would recommend this to anyone with an addiction to chocolate. You walk away with the chocolate truffles that you prepared in the session and knowledge of how to continue making them from your own home.

Chocolate Workshop in Cardiff City

I had to do the experience in Bath as could not get in to Cardiff before my voucher ran other, this was the only downside of the whole thing as once there we had a really great time. As a big chocolate fan it was the perfect choice for me, will highly recommend it to every one I know and since they have tasted the treats I brought home they will be wanting to do it themselves.

Chocolate Workshop in Chocolate Hotel

really good

11077929_10206318579668604_4680747623987791447_nAs every self-confessed chocoholic will know, there is not much that can beat the truffle when it comes to indulging your sweet tooth!  So, you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to attend a truffle making workshop, last weekend. Experience Days’ ‘Chocolate Workshop’, available in five different locations, is the perfect way to learn more about your favourite sweet treat whilst actually trying your hand at making truffles! Here’s how we got on…

The venue for our workshop was the extremely fitting ‘Chocolate Boutique Hotel’ in Bournemouth. We were greeted by the friendly receptionist and given directions through the gloriously chocolatey themed hotel. We passed bowls brimming with chocolate chips, portraits of celebrities hand painted in chocolate, and the luxurious décor made us feel like we were entering into a magical chocolate world.

19702_10206319023519700_7565035568108747156_nAs we entered the workshop we received a warm welcome from Chris, our master chocolatier for the day. We found our workspace and introduced ourselves to the fellow chocolate lovers who were taking part in the fun. To start off, we tasted high quality, 60% dark chocolate chips and as the bowl was being passed around the group, it’s safe to say we entered chocolate heaven. These delights, along with an actual chocolate fountain - complete with marshmallows for dunking - were available to be scoffed upon throughout the whole day.

11080900_10206318579348596_134955342793716599_nChris continued with a highly enlightening talk about the history, health benefits, origins and processes used in making chocolate. Who knew that eating dark chocolate and drinking red wine (in moderation of course!) is actually beneficial to your health? Or where the average bar of Cadbury’s actually comes from? As Chris’ fun and engaging talk came to an end, our sights set upon the bowls of shining, melted chocolate seated on the table in front of him. Time for the truffle making to commence!

11081122_10206318579068589_8923858684056603724_nWe were given a demonstration on the first stage of the process: combining cream and melted chocolate to form the soft centre of truffles. This required a volunteer from the group to lend a hand with the vigorous mixing that is needed for the two elements to combine and the piping that readies the chocolatey mix for rolling into bite size balls. As we donned our much needed aprons – we were about to get messy - we quickly realised that it was not as easy as Chris had made it seem! However, there was no need to worry as we all achieved truffle sized balls of ganache in the end.

19811_10206318579908610_5893304922809554961_nWe were then shown the second stage of creating truffles: tempering the chocolate (otherwise known as making it nice and shiny) to coat our truffles with! With a volunteer in tow, Chris amazed us with his skills in handling chocolate and we became eager to get coating and decorating our own chocolates. An inviting selection of chopped nuts, cocoa powder, icing sugar, coconut and white chocolate was available to decorate our truffles with and to finish it off, we were provided with cute gift bags and ribbons to take our creations home in. The end result looked very professional and was the perfect gift for a loved one – or just to devour, ourselves!




The whole experience was great fun and would be very well suited for couples on a romantic getaway, hen parties, or for those who just want to learn how to make delicious handmade truffles at home.
