Inspired Chcolate has been a regular stop on our yearly holiday to North Yorkshire. Me and my girlfriend visited today and as always the staff were lovely, helpful and gave us a really warm welcome. We watched the chocolate bombs being made and ended up with a huge chocolate reindeer half price! As with our last visits we walked away with some beautiful chocolate which tastes better than any big brand. We efinitely recommend stopping by and can't wait to come back in spring.

Visited today for the first time. Fairly well hidden off the main road through Leyburn, address is Leyburn Industrial Estate. Lovely staff, small tea room at the back, and a gift shop where you can select your chocolates for various sized gift boxes.
Highly recommended. 😋

We walked into this little chocolate shop and was amazed at the welcome we received from lovely Codie ! She inquired from us as to whether we are being served etc.. and when we inquired regarding participating in a chocolate making class she immediately said yes, in half an hour she would be able to instruct us . Codie explained the process step by step and was very professional.She made it a very interesting and an enjoyable Truffle making afternoon for my husband and myself. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We will definitely share our experience with our friends. We came back happily with the truffles we made and lots of other yum treats !

We attended as a couple for a chocolate truffle making session. We were able to fill 8 truffle shells each with ganache, coat them with chocolate and then decorate with a range of flavours / sprinkles. Overall a very good and fun workshop, however it would have been nice to be given the opportunity to make the truffle shells ... or be able to see how the shells are made? Thank you to all the staff, a lovely and cosy chocolate shop with plenty of sweet treats to try!

I am pleased you were able to enjoy your visit. The truffle shells are made in an industrial process, and this not something that you (or we) are able to make here I am afraid. These are typical used by all artisan chocolatiers for this type of truffle. We do sometimes make a stiffer ganache that we then roll into balls for coating in chocolate or rolling in cocoa, but the process takes a lot longer and is not something we offer as a workshop. The aim of the workshop is to enable the experience of going through the whole truffle making cycle in a sensible time frame with out the waiting for crystallisation, tempering etc etc. Hopefully this helps to clarify a little.

Booked a truffle making class for my wife & I as part of her Xmas present, obviously due to Covid it was delayed but was worth the wait. Maria our instructor was great, what a lovely lady. We had a glass of Prosecco while we were making the truffles, took just under an hour, great fun, and we came away with 2 lovely trays of truffles. Highly recommended.
