$34 for a Chocolate-Making Workshop for One ($82 Value)
Students sip Belgian hot chocolate prior to the outset of the 90-minute workshop, when a master confectioner narrates the history of chocolate. As the storyteller drums up intrigue, tracing chocolate's evolution from an obscure tropical bean to a ubiquitous pantry staple, three platters of sample origin chocolates circulate from student to student, causing mouths to water with happy tears. When the history lesson concludes, the instructor helps participants in handcrafting various delicacies, such as truffles and mould chocolates, and in decorating a molten chocolate lava cake. Finally, the delicacies are nestled into a box, fastened with a ribbon, and sent home with their maker.

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. 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. There are events for all ages—kids can celebrate Halloween or Easter by making seasonal treats, and grown-ups hand-roll truffles and learn which drinks best pair with their gourmet chocolates.
