A Night of Chocolate Socializing at The Wine Bar

Recently, I was invited once again by Cocoa Kelly of Chocolate Tales to attend a Chocolate Social at The Wine Bar.  I was very excited about this event because we had a great time at the Chocolate Making Workshop that we were invited to the last year.  This time the event was hosted by Diana.  The whole concept of the chocolate social is to bring together the fun of chocolate-making with the social aspect which involves an evening of relaxation and a few drinks.  This is definitely a session that I would recommend for a birthday party or a shower/bachelorette party.

Unfortunately, my husband bailed on me because he had to work late that night, so I attended the event on my own!  Luckily, there was a group of three in that day's session and I was able to join their table.  Thanks to Mike, Lizzy and Matty!

We started out with three chocolate tastings including a real white chocolate, a 32% milk chocolate and a 80% dark chocolate.  Their chocolates are couverture (high quality containing at least 32% cocoa butter), so of course they tasted great and melted quickly and smoothly in our mouths.

Then, we went on to some chocolate truffle making as you can see in my picture below.  There weren't that many truffles left because I ate some along the way.  :)

Lastly, we made some chocolate art with some coloured white chocolate squeeze bottles.  I must say I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

One of the perks of the chocolate social is that you will get to order drinks at a discounted price.  If you are interested in the event, you can get 55% off with this Groupon deal.
