September & October
Be a chocolatier for a day!
We'll meet in my private chocolate production lab, learn a bit about chocolate by tasting different chocolates, then dive right into chocolate-making activities. Guests will get to mix ganache, hand-roll chocolates, decorate molds with colored cocoa butter, demold chocolates, and run chocolates or pretzels through our chocolate waterfall, depending on what's in progress. We'll learn a little science and some art, too!
September & October
Make & Take: Chocolate Pumpkin
We'll meet in my private chocolate production lab, decorate a pumpkin mold using a variety of techniques including painting and stamping with edible, colored cocoa butter. Then we'll cast the mold in delicious dark chocolate. When it's set, we'll demold the decorated pumpkin and have a beautiful finished chocolate bowl and lid, perfect for filling with caramel or other treats. Students will take their own pumpkin home to display or eat.
From our class participants
“Just a wonderful experience into a world I knew little about. Robyn was very engaging. Excellent teacher. This experience, Robyn and St. Croix's chocolates are hidden gems in the St. Croix Valley.” —Sue
“This was an experience my 10 year old daughter will remember for a lifetime. This would be an awesome date, time with friends, or in our case a great way to spend time with our daughter. It was her favorite thing we did on the whole trip. It's well worth it, and I can't recommend it highly enough.” —Ryan
“Super fun and learned a ton about chocolate in a relaxed atmosphere. They were great hosts and kept us busy. Oh! And of course, you get to eat the results!” —Kirk
