A delicately prepared chocolate can make a woman's heart sing, a child's mouth smile, and a crossing guard's whistle taste even more like justice. Learn to craft tasty times with today's Groupon: for $38, you get admission for one to an adult chocolate-making workshop at Chocolate Tales (an $82 value, including HST).
The chocolatiers at Chocolate Tales turn the art of creating fine chocolates into an enlightening, accessible experience. The adult chocolate workshop whisks eager minds through a nougat-filled parade of chocolate history, including a discussion of Caesar's love of Snickers and four samples along the way. Workshop attendees will also be tutored in the ABCs of assembling bonbons, moulding chocolates, and making truffles before trying slightly more challenging assignments such as chocolate soufflé and differential chocolate calculus. Students get their hands sweetly dirty with genuine Belgian chocolate, experiencing the authentic feel and taste of the imported delicacy. The afternoon concludes with students carting home their semisweet concoctions in ribbon-tied bundles, which become ideal for at-home desserts, gift giving, or bribing witches to gain gingerbread-house admittance. Check the schedule for workshop dates and times.
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.
