Course Overview

Half Day Chocolate Making Workshop

Two and a half hours of pure wicked indulgence!

On our half day chocolates course you’ll discover the secrets of making confectioner-quality, filled chocolates.

We’ll make a salted caramel, which we’ll use as a sumptuous filling. We’ll then temper dark chocolate to create the cases for the salted caramel.

Tempering is necessary in order to give chocolate that characteristic ‘snap’ and shine. It also allows you to handle chocolates without getting too messy!

Considered by many to be a bit of a dark art, we’ll take you through each step needed to perfectly temper the chocolate you’ll use to enrobe the salted caramel filling you made earlier.

At the end of the course you’ll get to take home everything you made in a pretty purpose made box with ribbon and a gift label.

These are examples of the kind of dishes you could be making

  • Handmade chocolates

  • Ganache for filling
