Customers can choose to attend any of Hot Chocolates' regularly scheduled classes. These include options such as Cookies for Valentine’s Day on February 2, during which students decorate one dozen prebaked cookies with royal icing, buttercream, and chocolate. On March 2, the Goodness Gracious, Great Balls of Cake course unveils the secrets to creating cake balls in various flavors and designs. Light refreshments are provided throughout each class. Alternatively, customers can take home treats such as handmade chocolates ($30/lb.) and custom cakes ($12+ for a 6" single-layer round cake).
Don't be fooled by Hot Chocolates' name—the bakery focuses on more than one flavor. In fact, even the handcrafted chocolate candies come in more than 40 varieties, such as dipped Oreos, peanut-butter creams, and 12 types of truffles made from imported ingredients. The staff also bakes custom cakes in 35 flavors, including piña colada and devil's food. To personalize these desserts for special occasions such as parties, weddings, or breakfast, bakers top them with assorted icings and buttercreams. These creations once caused a customer to describe the patisserie as a place “where everything tastes as good as it looks,” which the business uses as its motivation to create new eye-catching delicacies. Hot Chocolates' bakers also teach the secrets behind many of their treats in group classes, during which students learn to decorate cookies and bake desserts.
