Class Description

How would you like to make your own hand-dipped chocolate candies? In this class you will learn how to caramelize sugar and make truffles and other centers for dipping in chocolate. You will learn the basics of tempering chocolate with a simple thermometer and the art of enrobing your centers in decadent milk and dark Belgian chocolate.
During class you will mix, whip, scoop, and form or cut your centers. Then you’ll dip your centers. Once the chocolate is set you will decorate your candies, put them in papers and foils, then package your sweets in a beautiful, festive box. You will take home more than a pound of high-quality chocolates worthy of giving as a gift–but you’ll probably want to keep them. Better yet, hide them in your sock drawer!
The techniques you will learn in this class will enable you to make many types of chocolate candies.
The kitchen will be very cool to allow the chocolate to set correctly.  A sweater or sweatshirt is recommended.
