Love the idea of making chocolate at home? Discover the secrets behind crafting glossy bonbons and learn why tempering is such an essential step to crafting these chocolates in this online class.

Belgian chocolatière Emma from Emma’s Delights will teach you how to temper chocolate to make your very own chocolate rocks by hand or glossy bonbons with a poly-carbonate mold. You'll be delighted by the results!

During this virtual experience, have time to ask questions, give feedback on the tasting, guess some answers to questions about chocolate making and storing, and finally, you will also have a chance to win an extra box of 5 assorted Belgian chocolates during our pop-up quiz. Nut-free and vegan options are available.

We will send you a craft kit with chocolate and ingredients for topping or making rocks, but you will need to provide a few tools.

Know any other sweet-tooths like you? Why not get together and try making chocolate as a fun group activity? It's a fun thing to do at home with really tasty rewards.

Please note:

  • Booking your event at least 3 weeks in advance (5 weeks during holidays) will help your chances to secure your preferred day/time.
  • Please inform us of any allergies before booking and we are happy to accommodate.
  • We ship by USPS Domestic First Class shipping (1 day for CA - 2-3 days outside of CA) but allow for a few days for unforeseen delays by the shipping company.
  • If we have to ship to warm weather locations ( 78°F+) we will need to add cold packs and will charge for the applicable kits after booking ($15).

Hi, I am Emma Martens, a Belgian chocolatière and owner of Emma's Delights, Belgian chocolates. I handcraft traditional Belgian chocolates in small batches and make all my own fillings from scratch with your well-being in mind, as well as sharing my passion by teaching others about chocolate.

Our mission is to combine the luxurious decadence of fine chocolates with the purity of healthy ingredients. That is why we do not use glucose in any of our chocolates and we only use organic cane sugar if we want to caramelize an ingredient. Our ganaches contain NO added sugars.
We want to share with you everything we know and help you have a go at making your own.

We welcome everyone in our classes and will help you explore new flavors and a new way to appreciate chocolate.
