    We really enjoyed this chocolate truffle making class. It provides a great foundation for making truffles, and the class was such fun (with quite a few yummy chocolate covered treats). Roni-Sue is a wonderful fountain of knowledge, offering many useful tips. The truffles we made looked amazing and so impressive, especially all boxed up!

    The truffle making class that I attended a few months back was absolutely amazing. I felt very lucky that my friend and I had the space to ourselves to create chocolate masterpieces. The instructor was very kind and provided us a small breakfast since our class was early in the day. P.S. that snack included chocolate. The chocolate-covered strawberries and chocolate-covered bananas were absolutely tasty. The truffle making experience was simple and to the point. The best part was that you get to take a box of chocolates home along with the ganache that you made for your chocolate strawberries and frozen banana pops. I would definitely recommend this class to all chocolate lovers.

Discover the Best Chocolate Making Classes in NYC

Chocolate, a product of the beans of the cacao tree, is as old as the ancient Olmecs of Southern Mexico. In ancient Olmecian society, historians believe chocolate was taken as a bitter ceremonial beverage. Ancient Mayan chocolate, however, was consumed at nearly every meal whether by the wealthy and commoners. It was typically mixed with water, honey, or chilis into a thick and frothy beverage. And when the Europeans discovered cacao and Mayan chocolate, they began to experiment with it and transformed chocolate into the rich and tasty treat we recognize today. 

Today, much of the world’s cacao is produced in West Africa, not its native Central and South America. But throughout the colonial period from the 1500s onward, chocolate was being imported from Central and South America and enjoyed mainly by members of the upper class who could afford it. It wasn’t long before Europeans started changing the recipe by adding spices like cinnamon and cane sugar to their chocolate, which was still consumed as a drink. But once the Dutch figured out how to make cocoa powder, chocolatiers began to spring up and display all of the wonderful ways in which chocolate could be transformed into more than just a beverage. 

With the mass production of chocolate, almost everyone can enjoy it in a wide range of forms, flavors, and quality. It didn’t take long for working with chocolate to become a respected art form, and today you can find chocolate competitions, a wide variety of chocolates from dark chocolate to milk chocolate to raspberry chocolate, and even institutions dedicated to chocolate, like the Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute

Why You Should Learn Chocolate Making in NYC

If you love chocolate, then there are probably a million tasty reasons to learn chocolate making in NYC. But other than the obvious reason of being able to whip up the chocolate treat of your dreams to your specifications on a whim, harnessing the power of chocolate making could reshape your world and plug you into a new community. You’ll find cacao growers, organizations pushing hard for fair-trade chocolate regulations, chocolatiers, chocolate enthusiasts, and even chocolate scientists. 

Learning how to make chocolate in all of its different forms can easily become a hobby or even an obsession. Its versatility allows it to be found in the humble chocolate chip cookie or an ornate five-foot-tall chocolate sculpture. How good you get at conjuring chocolate confections is up to you, but the journey is going to be bittersweet. Chocolate is for sharing, so the more you practice, the more you’ll have to share.

Any way you stir it, learning chocolate making is fun. Whether you enjoy eating it or not, learning the artistry of chocolate could turn into a small side hustle that pays for your next vacation, or possibly even replace your full-time job. Making chocolate is relaxing and comes with a tasty reward at the end. The chocolate road can be unpredictable at times, but the adventure is worth it.

In this three-hour Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Making, students of all skill levels ages 14 and older will learn the basics of bean-to-bar chocolate.

Virtual Chocolate Making Classes & Schools

Online classes are very similar to in-person classes and can impart a lot of great information to further your knowledge of chocolate making. The greatest advantage to taking online chocolate making classes is that your learning happens on your schedule in the setting that works for you. There’s no need to worry about commuting to class, beating the traffic, or trying to rearrange your busy schedule to make room for chocolate. 

In most online classes, participants need to have their own supplies and materials to participate in the workshop, but some virtual classes send kits to students to make learning easier and more uniform. Although a hands-on approach in an online chocolate making class refers mainly to your hands, there are still a lot of ways for your instructor to help students that need assistance. Clear verbal communication is essential in an online setting.

Students will create three different chocolate truffles that do not require baking in this no-bake vegetarian Chocolate Truffles class. This is an all-inclusive class, so each class participant will have a kit delivered to them with all of the materials needed to make the truffles. Students will still need to provide kitchen equipment like bowls and spatulas. The class will be a live demonstration that should be followed along with for a full experience. Although these truffles aren’t vegan or gluten-free, participants can feel free to substitute the Oreos and the honey to fit their dietary restrictions. 

A French Macaron Step-by-Step Class is a great way to stretch the culinary prowess of cooks ages 16 and older. Participants will level up their cookie-making with delicate macarons. Students will learn how to get the perfect macaron every time, and by the end of the class, students will have their own batch of delectable macarons to share or not to share. This class also features a different and unique macaron in every workshop.

It’s no secret that Cookie Decorating requires a steady hand and an artistic eye, and this course helps participants hone their cookie-decorating skills. This class covers techniques including flooding, marbling, and wet-on-wet cookie designs. Although this class is held online, students will be sent a kit containing the needed ingredients to participate in the class; however, basic kitchen equipment like mixing bowls and spatulas will need to be supplied by the participant.
