Chocolate Making Workshop at Chocolate Tales

I was recently invited to a free chocolate making workshop run by Chocolate Tales Inc., which is a company that provides entertaining chocolate making events for all kinds of occasions whether it be personal or corporate related.  I was pretty excited about the event and the host Cocoa Kelly did not disappoint.  She was very knowledgeable about the history of chocolate, how to temper the chocolate, and showed us a few different ways to decorate with chocolate.  The workshop involved a lot of hands-on work and of course some tastings and chocolates to bring home as well.  The event took place at the Miele showroom in Vaughan, so it gave me an opportunity to check out the showroom as well.

We were given a whole bunch of tools to decorate our chocolates with.  We baked some chocolate molten lava cakes, chocolate covered marsh mellows and made chocolate truffles with some ganache that was prepared ahead of time for the group.

Overall, the experience was so much fun and I would recommend it for special events such as birthdays or showers.  It is also a great way to spend an afternoon with your kids.  Special thanks to Cocoa Kelly for inviting us to this chocolate workshop.
