The ultimate experience for all those chocolate lovers out there, which takes place at our Chocolate shop in Eastwood, Leigh on sea, Essex, SS9 5UZ.
Session times: 30 - 45 mins in total, please allow the maximum time for your class session. You will be making your own chocolate decorated Halloween themed shape (weighing approx 200g - 300g depending on how many toppings they use, as some don't get to see the chocolate ha-ha plus 4 individual chocolate lollies.
What you make and take home: Upon arrival, the class members will, first use the foot pedal hand sanitiser in the main reception area, pop on hair nets and apron, ready for action, once in the back room, we will provide hand washing stations and more sanitisier.
To start the fun, the kids will get to decorate a large Coffin or Skull Shaped slab mould, which contains 150g of chocolate and then they can top with approx 150g of toppings. Then they move onto making 4 x individual topped lollies, weighing approx 75 each. Sometimes we will start with the lolly making.
We use Milk Chocolate for our classes, as we find it sets quicker for us. Each child will be given their own moulds and sweets to use, and their own sprinkle pots, to reduce cross contamination of toppings being picked up.
ALLERGY: Please note that we do cater for Vegan, Gluten and Dairy Free as well, this will need to be highlighted at us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We cannot cater for Nut Free at this premises unfortunately.
We will host a little quiz related to the season we are in, then they will wrap their goodies with the help of staff (if time permits they will decorate up their boxes to take the goodies home in, and then finally settle back to watch a short video of where the journey starts for chocolate, from bean to bar, and the process it goes through to land into our fingers to enjoy as a sweet treat. You may start to look at chocolate in a whole new light when you discover the journey it has travelled to be here.
Arrivals: We ask that you allow plenty of time to park and be ready to start promptly at the start time, as we will be running several classes throughout the day. Just to note, it’s very hands on, so it can get messy.
Dropping off: Parents/Carers will be asked to wait out the front of the Eatery, as we cannot have more than the numbers of the class in the back room. All of my staff are DBS checked and we run 24hr recorded CCTV at all times on site, should the situation arise that we need to play back the session. If it is sunny, we do have a small terrace garden area at the back that can be used, as well as the inside dining and front terrace area.
Please note: At our classes we will have milk chocolate on tap. If you have any allergies, please advise us in plenty of time to ensure we have alternatives available.
Allergies: Please advise of skin allergies, and the same for food allergies. We do use and make products with nuts on the premises, so must stress this as a warning to anyone who has an extreme nut allergy.
