Seriously delicious chocolate and amazing ice-cream! Friendly staff and everything made on site. A real treat to find and, once found, we were back almost daily!

We visited the chocolate factory recently to try one of their chocolate making experiences. We did the 15 minute express package which meant each member of our party flavoured and decorated three 100g bars of chocolate. You can choose from dark, milk, or white chocolate for each bar. After you’ve decorated your chocolate you need to leave your bars with them for 30+ mins to harden so we had a walk round Mijas to explore a little.

There was a wider range of flavours to choose from.

Staff were friendly and spoken English well.

If it would have been even better, we were not offered a look round the museum, which we would have liked to investigate a little. It would also be good to offer an option for perhaps having less chocolate. We partially chose our package as we came away with 15 bars of 100g chocolate, had we chosen a longer package we would have ended up with even more!!

Chocolate tastes fantastic and we’ve enjoyed eating some with a glass of wine!

Great place
Went back especially to have some of the mint choc chip ice cream which I think is pretty amazing. Also did the short chocolate making workshop (15 mins) but takes a while longer as it needs time to set. Set in the corner of the Mijas plaza virgin de la peña it’s a must even if you get the kids in the group to make the chocs while you enjoy a cooling drink ice cream desserts

We went for the 30 minute Bonbons & Bars Workshop...and it was great fun. The most fun was decorating/flavouring the bars and choosing from over 50 ingredients to do so - not an easy task!
Shortly after the workshop (and just enough time to enjoy a coffee and an ice cream from their cafe), your chocolate creations are ready for you to take home. I can confirm that they are tasty - well at least the ones we created were.
I would suggest booking in advance to ensure availability. The staff and teachers are a friendly bunch and made our experience one to remember.

We had a wonderful time at this chocolate making experience. We were a mixed group of 10 children and adults. They looked after us brilliantly from the time of booking right through the entire experience. Lots of interaction, really interesting and most of all great fun for the whole family. Highly recommended!

Couldn’t fault this place.
Very very good. Kids loved the experience as did we.
My only slight problem was that trip advisor charged more than the actual price for the experience. Disappointed by that, it shouldn’t of been the case.

This was our first return post-pandemic, having thoroughly enjoyed our previous chocolate-making workshop last time we were in Mijas. There are more options than there used to be in terms of what workshop you can choose, and this time we opted for bonbons and bars for a different experience.

There were two groups during our allocated timeslot, but we had our own table and post-covid you preselect your ingredients into little bowls before you start making your chocolate bars.

This workshop allows you to make six bonbons and three chocolate bars; the bonbons for the group all have to be the same type of chocolate, but the bars can be a choice of white, milk or dark chocolate. We opted for dark bonbons and then filled with either white milk or dark chocolate gananche. These were then left to set, and we make our bars. You can also add flavour such as mint, orange, cinnamon and coffee. Staff were attentive and helpful and we all enjoyed creating our chocolate masterpieces.

These then needed time to set, so we went to have an ice-cream - the workshop gives you 10% off shop purchases so it's worth waiting until afterwards. The coffee ice cream was especially delicious! We then had a little stroll around the streets until our creations were ready to take home.

Highly recommended and will definitely return!
