Make Chocolate From Scratch!

Chocolate is a food that is easy to get yet very few people know how chocolate is made and the differences between the various chocolate types. Even fewer have actually set their eyes on a cocoa bean, much less a cocoa pod.

In this class you will learn how to make dark chocolate from scratch for consumption, as well as learning the different typologies within the chocolate family. We will be using cocoa beans from different parts of the world, but primarily from Dominican Republic for its good-clean flavor. All cocoa beans are fair trade and organically certified.

The only ingredient we will use is cocoa beans and cocoa butter (optional), and a few tools to help us go through the process of making your very own chocolate. And if your family and friends love chocolate, imagine how they'll feel when you hand them a bar of your very own homemade chocolate.You'll be surprised how easy it is to make.

Cost is $35 + $15 of materials (MakerBar members pay only $15). No computer or tools required.

      Hi Jamie! Unfortunately I won't be in town until that night. As Janice suggested, sometime in 2014 would probably be easier (after all the holiday travel). I definitely want to attend though!

      Thanks for the feedback Cory! Yes, I am planning on repeating this class early next year. This was a great class. We were able to share everyone's chocolate bar creations, so expect to eat more chocolate that you're use to during class.

      Hi Jamie. The holiday season is no good for me. If you hold it in 2014 it would be better.

      No problem Janice. I will leave it for early next year. Thanks for the feedback!
