We are making handcrafted vegan chocolates that will rival any traditional candies you’ve tried before.

At the end of class, supplies will be provided to create a customized origami valentine box to showcase your vegan chocolate creations - take them home or share them as a gift! It's all free and sponsored by the University Heights Library!! Get there early, no registration is required, class is open to the first 30 participants.

    Liz, would you post a link to the recipes here? I'm in Carlsbad so I'm going to un-RSVP because I'd have to leave too early to get there earlier just to try and get a spot. I hope you do this again sometime before valentines. If not, maybe limit the number of rsvp's next year?

      Hi James, you can find the recipes on www.thevegangoodlife.com­. My website is under construction but you'll find them posted on my home page. I may come up and look into offering something through the Carlsbad Libraries soon!

    Thanks everyone for joining me at University Heights yesterday...next year I'll do it again...more demo, more sampling. The best part of last night was not really the class but the fact that all of you are showing up. Your participation is helping to grow vegan education and outreach. I'm working on building sponsors for food sampling and plan to schedule some food document film screenings and more classes soon. Thanks again for being there!

    Wow!! I'm getting ready for class tomorrow and see that we have a lot more people than seats. The library will take the first 30 people, for those of you that come and might not get a spot I will have extra chocolate samples for you and a link to get the recipes online. Many may be able to stay and watch the presentation if you miss getting a seat for the hands-on portion. Please remember, it's the first 30 people for hands-on and the library will set the rules on seating and participation. Thank you all for your interest in this class, I'll do it again next year!

    Happy Valentine's Day!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
