If you have a sweet tooth, then no doubt chocolate is one of your favourite treats. But imagine if you could make your own, with your specific additions, to suit your taste.
This is much easier than you might imagine, and is a quick win for your bucket list! There are numerous classes available throughout the UK, and it is a great way for the family to spend time together.
You will get to meet other chocolate enthusiasts, and of course, get to take your creations home.
Chocolate Making Classes
A quick glance at the internet reveals hundreds of options to choose from, and a chocolate experience can often be found on gift sites, to be purchased in advance for a special occasion.
Typically, the class will last around two to three hours and may include a brief introduction to the history of chocolate.
Initially, you may start by tasting different chocolates and discover their relationship with the cocoa bean.
What is Included?
Of course, each class will offer their own options, but typically, all the necessary ingredients and equipment will be included in the price. If you prefer to specialise, you could find classes that focus on truffles or perhaps filled chocolates.
Hygiene is of the utmost importance, and you may be asked to remove any jewellery. There could be a certification at the end of the class, and you will be able to take your hand-crafted goodies home with you!
This bucket list experience could inspire you to start your own business. There are many options for more in-depth courses, lasting for up to five days, that cover all the requirements for selling your creations.
No matter whether this is a just way to pass a couple of hours, or you require more in-depth knowledge, learning to make chocolate is a skill you will always treasure!
