Like crayons, chocolate comes in many varieties and tastes better when unwrapped before consuming. Scribble out cocoa cravings with today’s Groupon: for $38, you get a season-themed chocolate-making workshop at Chocolate Tales (an $82 value). Choose from a season-themed chocolate-making workshop in November, December, January, February, March, or April.
Chocolate Tales’ instructors unveil the secrets of making fine chocolates and sprinkle hands-on workshops with bits of chocolate history. During workshops scheduled throughout the fall and winter, a master chocolatier escorts participants through 90-minute lessons on making impressive sweets such as Belgian bonbons, chocolate soufflés, and ganache cell-phone cases. Seasonal themes inspire students who imbue cocoa constructions with fall flavours in October and November, and Christmas- and winter-themed adornments in December and January. Chocolate Tales provides all necessary chocolate-building materials, including kitchen utensils, high-grade Belgian chocolate, and cages for chocolate bunnies. All workshop graduates get to tote home ribboned boxes filled with their heavenly handiwork.
The chocolatiers at Chocolate Tales love a sweet bit a cocoa, but they love bringing people together even more. That's why they host chocolate parties, innovative events that combine the hands-on fun of chocolate making with the laid-back ambiance of a social gathering. These events can take the shape of mobile corporate team building or in-home kids birthday parties and adult soirées. The owner was inspired by his time in Europe, and brought back the continent's shared love of quality chocolates and social camaraderie, before adding his own, unique spin. At the end of each occasion, participants walk away with their own elegant, handcrafted chocolates—and the unbeatable feeling of being a chocolatier.
