What you'll learn in this chocolate class:

Treat yourself to sweets while learning the classic art of truffle making!

We begin with a guided tasting where we serve a bit of sparkling wine as a palate cleanser and welcome drink.

Highlights of this portion:
  • discussing and showing how chocolate is made 
  • guided tasting of cacao bean, nibs and chocolate made with the same beans
  • tasting a dark chocolate bon-bon made with our own direct trade chocolate from Belize
  • exploring a few other cacao growing regions and tasting samples of chocolates from these countries
  • discussion of direct trade and single origin chocolate vs. commercial chocolate and commodity cacao
  • telling the stories of the farmers we work with in Belize and the local folks learning the craft of chocolate making
  • fielding questions from guests who want to delve into a particular aspect of chocolate more deeply
  • talking about the health benefits of eating dark chocolate and cacao
Next we head to the kitchen for the two hands-on portions. First guests make a box of a dozen chocolate truffles, hand-rolling and finishing them in a variety of toppings. The students are so proud of what they've created and the boxed truffles are a lovely take home!  

Finally everyone makes a batch of fresh chocolate ganache to master that basic technique which they also take home to play with another day (or just eat out of the container with a spoon!!)

Minimum age to attend the class is 10 and must be accompanied by adult.

Please wear comfortable clothing -- not your fanciest please, and sensible shoes (you will be on your feet for most of the class).

Question from Amanda B.
Hello, are the ingredients dairy free? Thanks!
Answer from Rhonda K. Verified Educator
Hi Amanda, No- our usual materials include local Hudson Valley heavy cream in the ganache. We can make a dairy free version for guests which requires advance notice & an additional fee of $25 to help offset the additional labor. Hope that helps! Roni-Sue

The class was really informative and a great intro to chocolate. It would have been nice to make at least one more thing though. 3/4 of the class was instruction and chocolate tasting and only the last bit was spent working with the chocolate. Overall we really enjoyed it!

This class was a lot of fun, very interesting, and a great gift for Mother's Day. Rhonda was very welcoming and made this a great experience. It was exciting to try the different chocolates and make our own truffles and ganache.

Great class in a charming shop. The class was very fun and we learned a lot- from the origins of chocolate to making our own, it was a really unique Valentine's treat. Thanks, Rhonda!
