- Manchester (Greater Manchester)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
Enjoy a half day chocolate making workshop in Manchester, and
learn how to make a delicious giant chocolate button as well as
your own handmade chocolate truffles! The Mancheser chocolate
workshop is run by Master Chocolatiers who are incredibly skilled,
and very knowledgeable about the process of chocolate making from
the cacao plantations to the shop display.
The experience begins with a warm welcome to the workshop, and a briefing to introduce you to the day. The first thing you will do is watch a chocolate making demonstration, as the chocolatiers provide you with lore, facts and figures relating to chocolate and chocolate making while they make some of their incredible signature exotic chocolate for you to taste and enjoy.
Then you will start to get really hands-on, beginning by making a giant chocolate button. This will get you used to working with the molten chocolate, and when finished you can decorate it however you like! After this it's tie to make some delicious chocolate truffles using the finest organic ingredients. You will be provided with pretty ribbon-tied bags in which to take your handmade truffles home with you, so you can share your creations with lucky family and friends!
This is the perfect Manchester experience day gift for the chocaholics in your life - and if you're partial to a little chocolate yourself, its nice sweet gift to give yourself too!

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!
