Ideal for birthday parties, celebrations or just because they love chocolate! Suitable for children and teens.

Each workshop lasts approx two hours, they will:

  • Work with quality Belgium milk chocolate
  • Hear about how the chocolate has been tempered ready for action
  • Fill spheres with caramel
  • Pipe a chocolate lollipop
  • Dip a variety of chocolate fillings into the tank   The fillings might include fun mallows and yummy fudge!
  • Enjoy a hot chocolate or soft drink & cookie
  • Take part in a chocolate tasting – trying some real cocoa products too!
  • Decorate their chocolate bags and then package their creations ready to take home.

Note for parents:

The chocolate creations make a lovely party bag in their own right – containing their chocolate lollipop, caramels and hand-made chocolate creations.

The children will have a drink and cookies, but not a full meal during the workshop.

Most people do not bring a birthday cake, however, you are very welcome to bring along a cake if you wish. 

What the children say:

“Thank you for such a lovely party.  It was the best party I’ve ever had and I loved it! I loved it! I loved it!


“Well, this was yumminess and coolness and awesomeness all in one. Loved it!”


“Thanks for a great time, you were very welcoming and jolly.  Thanks again.”


“Thank you for my special birthday treat. Me and my friends loved it.  I hope to do it again!”
