If you've ever been interested in how they make chocolate taste so good, now is your chance to have a go yourself! Learn the art of chocolate making with Belgian chocolatière, Emma, from Emma's Delights in this tasty virtual experience.

Emma will explain what tempering is and why it is essential to the chocolate crafting process. She will then demonstrate how to temper chocolate and guide you through your own tempering process at home.

Once you've had a go at tempering some chocolate, you will then be crafting your own bites. You can choose to make molded chocolate by learning how to pour chocolates, top them, and release them after they have set. Or you can choose to make chocolate rocks using fruits and nuts.

We will send you a craft kit full of 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 (more than 80°F) we will need to add cold packs which will increase the price per person. Please add this on at checkout if your location frequently experiences warm weather.
  • Store your chocolates in a cool dry place away from strong odors. Please do NOT refrigerate because humidity will cause sugar bloom.
