My family (my husband, myself, and two teenagers) went there for family night. You are shown a quick video on the process of making candies, shown where everything in the workshop is, then provided some melted chocolate and set loose to create your chocolate heart's desire.

My family loved this. They had so much fun picking what to put in their candies. The chocolate is good. One thing I worried about as I am a bit of a chocolate snob.

Things to note: We were planning on doing the family night pricing, and while we could have still done that, they suggested doing the pricing by the pound as the family night pricing is meant more for toddlers or young kids that "help" the parents. Just keep that in mind if you are booking this that if you want to make more candies, and I suspect you will, you will want to take that into account.

I would recommend this experience.

The class was fun. The instructors we super nice and funny (young guys and I can't for the life of me remember their names). Lots of different varieties to suit your tastes that you could make. My daughter went well over the allotted weight for the group and it didn't cost too much for the additional. Fun little outing! Thanks!

We recently stopped in for the Monday family night to create some chocolates, and it was a lot more enjoyable than we had expected! The staff was fun and relaxed, and after some instructions you are quickly able to start creating your own chocolates. Our little group consisted of myself, my husband and our four year old daughter and we all had an absolute blast!

One word of advice, the scale is your friend! If you go over your allowed 1 pound of chocolate it is an additional charge of $16.50 a pound, and although that is very reasonable, it is shocking how quickly you can make a pound. Even if you end up going over, It is well worth it and a excellent deal!

We highly recommend this fun family activity!

I would love to tell you about the experience of familynight, but we were wait listed and they didn't have the courtesy to call to let us know that they were booked solid. Not like we didn't leave a message through their website and leave a phone number. I checked email throughout the day and nothing, Luckily we were in Orlando for dinner at Hawkers ( Awesome !! ) and this was a throw in. Still, my daughter was looking forward to getting her hands on some chocolate and was a little disappointed. My recommendation is to CALL ahead, get a name and a confirmation.

I took a t our bus of 56 senior ladies there to make candy. It was so much fun. The owners were wonderful and the chocolate was the best ever! You should go.

My friend and I wanted to have a foodie experience while in Florida, but one of our planned activities got cancelled. We decided to do Farris and Foster's chocolate making class on a Friends and Family Night.

I thought we had booked for 5pm, and as we were milling about outside the shop I got a reminder text that our class was scheduled for 7pm. Oops! We went in and asked about changing to the 5pm since we were already there, and lucked out. The later class had 17 people scheduled, the early one had only two others. So we made candies with a grandma and her teen grandson and had a splendid time.

The front is where they sell their candies, all of which have very clever names like Mint Romney. The candies are rich and decadent and really pretty to look at. The prices are standard for upscale chocolates.

For the class, you are set up with a cup mold (think the chocolate part of a Reese's), a placemat and the papers that chocolates come in on a stainless steel table. There is a machine with a melted chocolate behind one side and a wall of candy molds on the opposite side. Both ends have tall baker's racks with tubs of goodies on them: toffee, gummies, graham crackers, rice krispie treats, caramels, strawberries, pecan turtles, etc. One shelf is devoted to fillings: chocolate ganache, caramel, peanut butter, hazelnut, cherry, in pastry bags and another is toppings: sea salt, chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc. One of the workers demonstrates putting stuff on the conveyor belt through the chocolate bath, dipping fruit, filling the cups, how to make a cup, and drizzling. There are large cups of dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate. The cups have a hole in the bottom which is stoppered with a stick that has a ball on it. This enables the chocolatier to open the hole, drop chocolate into the mold, then stop the flow quickly. After the demo is over, you get to it. All the stuff in the store is fair game. You can coat and drizzle and sprinkle all you like. A 1/2 lb is included in the price. If you make more, you pay by the pound. It's pretty reasonable considering that you can make some pretty gourmet candies. The staff also provides as much chocolate as you can eat while you're making, and will make special requests. They also have a chill unit to help the chocolate harden in warmer weather. We didn't need to use it in January!

Overall, this class is super fun and you get a pretty cool souvenir out of it. It's something that kids would really get into, but is fun for the whole family.

We visited here after dinner and got a couple pieces of chocolate. Each piece cost $1. Expensive chocolate and small portions. It calls itself a chocolate factory and you can have a party there.

I decided to take the family here for our weekend trip out just to try something different. We went to an evening chocolate making class. They had a blast making their own chocolate creations (pretzels, strawberries, molds of different shapes, etc). On top of that, the chocolate is actually good. As some other reviews have mentioned, the per 1/2 lb cost is a bit pricey, but that goes along with the experience. Sure, I could have bought my 4 year old a $5 box of chocolates, but the look on his face making his very own was well worth it. If you're thinking of going to one of the classes, go for the experience and not for wanting to walk out of there with a big box of chocolates.

The experience itself was 5 stars. Where I found the chocolate factory lacking was in the restroom. I have pretty high standards when it comes to restrooms in places that make and serve food. And while the restroom wasn't as bad as many fast food places, it's a small enough establishment that it should be able to spruce it up a bit, especially since there's only one (ie - paper towels vs. hand dryer, etc).

I went there recently on a trip with others and it was HORRIBLE. I've taken chocolate making classes in the past and this was a joke. Everything was already made you just had to put what you wanted together. THAT'S A FAR CRY FROM MAKING CHOCOLATES. Such FALSE ADVERTISING & A RIP OFF.

If you want to learn how to make chocolate candies this is NOT THE PLACE TO GO.
