the only negative comment I had was it would've been better to print the recipes up for us, then explain them to us, otherwise i really enjoyed the hands on experience and walked away with my new candy and new knowledge. Would definately like to take another class.

What You'll Get

Explorers arriving in the new world searched relentlessly for gold and chocolate, but disappointed monarchs when returning with sacks full of fool’s gold and raisins. End the centuries-old search with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a three-hour Divine Art of Chocolate Making class at Canady Le Chocolatier (a $200 value). This Groupon is only valid for redemption at the South Wabash Avenue location. Classes are offered at 6 p.m. every day except Wednesday, with additional classes on Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m. This Groupon is valid through May 17 and makes a great holiday gift.

Led by owner Michael Canady, a class of five to seven chocolatiers in training dive into the course, learning the skills of modern chocolate production as well as how to recognize and harvest it in the wild. After a discussion on techniques and a tasting, students get hands-on experience in the class kitchen by tempering traditional choco-sweets such as cream-filled delights and custom assortments. Rich dark-, milk-, and white-chocolate techniques zoom into students’ brains during the lesson, augmented by such sweet topics as covering orange slices, coating coffee, and slathering high-school diplomas with chocolate. After the course, students take home creations, giving friends and family members the chance to taste treats as decadent as a chocolate-covered model of Versailles.

About Canady Le Chocolatier

Rich dark, milk, and white chocolates filled with ganaches, soft caramel, and fondant lie nestled inside Canady Le Chocolatier's gift boxes, and their hand-made thai parchment paper wrapping—imprinted with an orchid and soft-green leaf design—ensures that eager fingers unwrap the decadent chocolates with care. Once they're free of their delicate packaging, truffles and bonbons prepared for special occasions, such as holidays and gourmet food fights, flood mouths with creaminess.

Those who are too eager to wait for the treats to emerge from their wrappings can venture into the shop, where owner Michael Canady whisks together his own gelato with fresh fruit and natural ingredients and griddles a selection of sweet and savory crêpes. Canady even teaches people how to replicate his confections at home during hands-on classes for small groups.
