We welcome lots of lovely hen parties to the chocolate tank. It’s a great way to celebrate with friends & it’s also perfectly suitable for auntie, mum & future mum-in-law too!

Our fun parties last approx two hours, each hen will:

  • Work with delicious Belgium milk chocolate
  • Pipe a chocolate lollipop – (I’ve seen many an interesting design from the hens!!!!)
  • Fill spheres with caramel – for those that remember, it’s just like The Generation Game!
  • Dip a variety of chocolate fillings into the tank – of course this will include some ‘heart’ mallows!
  • Enjoy a drink & treat (you may bring your own fizz along , or keep it alcohol free, it’s up to you)
  • Yummy chocolate tasting – a small prize for the best palate!
  • Lots of ribbons and pretty bags to take your creations home – or on to the next leg of the party!

What the hen’s have said:   

“We just wanted to write and say thank you so much for making Claire’s hen party so special.  The whole ‘chocolate’ experience was instrumental in making the day as successful as it was.  All the girls had a fantastic time and it was so kind of you to deliver the goodies later.  We would certainly recommend your activity and wish you all the success possible in the future” Jane and Joanne (mum and sister of hen)

“Thank you so much for hosting an absolutely fantastic morning for my sister and us hens yesterday! We all haven’t stopped raving about it since, great fun! :-)”  Jude

“Just wanted to say thank you very much for hosting us on Saturday.  We all had a fab time and Claire loved it!  It was great to catch up with all the girls and thank you for making it so relaxing, so fun and so perfect for Claire’s hen.” Lisa
