Learn to make chocolate truffles and more, with this fun,
creative, and delicious chocolate making workshop in Brighton! This
is a 2.5 hour chocolate experience, during which you will learn to
make different types of chocolate treats, and get a fascinating
insight into the chocolate making process from the cacao
plantations to the shop displays.
Your experience begins at the workshop with a welcome and an introduction to the experience. You will watch a chocolate making demonstration, complete with stories and facts about chocolate and chocolate making, told by the master chocolatiers as they create their signature exotic chocolate for the group to taste. Then it's time to get hands-on, as you roll up your sleeves and make a giant chocolate button, which you can get really creative with and decorate however you like.
Next up, you'll use a silky, glossy chocolate ganache, bowls of melted organic chocolate, and milk chocolate praline, as well as flavours and decorations to create rich, smooth and delicious hand made chocolate truffles that will melt in your mouth. The master chocolatiers will be on hand throughout your chocolate making class to help you through any tricky bits you encounter, and you will be given pretty bags with ribbon-ties to tke home your truffles at the end of the day, so you can share your creative genius with lucky friends and family! The perfect gift idea for anyone with a sweet tooth and a creative streak!

I had such a great time at this workshop. We had Emily who taught us lots about the history of chocolate and how its made. We got to sample some chocolates and make some chocolate using several different techniques along the way. Very happy with the course!
For someone who loves his chocolate I was a little excited to say the least when my wife booked the chocolate making workshop. Being down the road in Brighton made it easy and accessible to get to. Greg who took the class made everyone feel at ease and was very passionate about his job. We could not fault the clear instructions that were given. Great experience!
As well as participating in one of their fantastic chocolate workshops in London last week, I was also lucky enough to get an interview with Hannah Saxton, the founder of My Chocolate. With a range of experiences on offer, from corporate events to hen parties, there are tonnes of reasons to get your hands dirty making delicious chocolates!
1) Please explain your journey as ‘My Chocolate’ so far.
I left university nine years ago and used my saved-up student loan to set-up MyChocolate, the UK’s first chocolate making events company. For the first year, I ran workshops from my tiny flat in Shepherd’s Bush and spent evenings working as a waitressing to make ends meet! Once the word got out about MyChocolate, I was lucky enough to receive great press coverage and the bookings started to roll in. We now run around a hundred workshops a month in London, Manchester and Brighton for gift experiences, hen parties and corporate events.
2) What has been the biggest or most memorable event you’ve provided?
There have been so many! If I had to pick the top few I’d say appearing on The Apprentice and running a huge corporate event at the Ritz.
3) Is there any inside information you can give us?
There’s a little more to chocolate making than most people think! Our workshops focus on the fun side of chocolate making but we like everyone to leave with a few tricks of the trade. For example, we teach Tempering, the process of cooling chocolate down so it’s the right temperature to work with and how to use transfer sheets, which print edible pictures on your chocolates.
4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you’d like to tell us about?
We are currently working on a new product. I can’t say anything at the moment but we will have an exciting announcement soon!
5) What would you say is your most frequently asked question?
“Can I take my chocolates home with me?” The answer is always yes, unless you eat them all during the workshop!
