“Great chocolate making workshop.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Got given this as an Xmas present. Voucher comes as a Golden ticket and with a bar of chocolate.
A really lovely place. On arrival you get given a drink with some homemade chocolates.
Upstairs to the workshop. Useful and interesting information about the types of chocolate and where they are from. Which you get to sample.

Then we made our own filling to go in chocolate cups, where you get to choose what flavour. You come away with a box full if these and they are very yummy.

Then you have a break where you go back downstairs to the shop and have a cup of warm melted chocolate and some biscuits. Extremely yummy.

Back upstairs to make your truffles. This is the fun messy bit. If you are not tempted to lick the chocolate off your gloves, then you have more self control than I do lol.

Again you come away with at least two bags of the truffles.

The guy that did our workshop was hilarious and me and my partner had such a laugh. We learnt so much, it changed the way we eat and buy chocolate and would definatly recommend this experience.

Word of advice, you eat loads of chocolate and take loads home...go on an empty stomach!!
The chocolates and truffles are so yummy that we will probably use their home kit to make truffles for our wedding favours.

Wish these guys and their company all the best and for us it was a great experience, better than we expected it to be.

Thank you so much for an excellent experience.
