As children grow up, they must learn that money doesn’t grow on trees, dinner doesn’t make itself, and real dogs are awful at basketball. Let kids be kids with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for a candy-making workshop for one child (a $50 value)
- $650 for a chocolate party for 10 children (a $1,300 value)<p>
During candy-making workshops, kids create two gourmet candy bars and a pound of chocolate-dipped pretzels with gourmet Belgian chocolate. Parties similarly satisfy creative minds and sweet teeth, allowing kids to decorate and devour an assortment of treats that includes 10 ice-cream sundaes, 10 molded-chocolate items, and 30 hand-dipped strawberries. Thick rivulets of chocolate pour down a fountain, dazzling partygoers and up to 10 parents as they embellish pretzels, graham crackers, and Oreo cookies with help from an old-fashioned enrobing machine. Pizza, drinks, and a popcorn machine make a meal out of the experience, and each child gets a goodie bag to take home for their third or fourth dessert.<p>
Chocolate Works NYC
Candy comes in every color at Chocolate Works NYC, where the rainbow of confectionery pairs naturally with the sunny dispositions of those who roam the store’s aisles. Hints of red peek out from chocolate-dipped strawberries, jordan almonds model this season’s pastels, and self-serve bins nearly burst with Jelly Belly jellybeans. Wrapped in shimmering foil or cellophane, kosher truffles and edible replicas of famous paintings momentarily distract eyes from a chocolate fountain, which bubbles into a rich brown pool framed by a marzipan “No Swimming” sign.
Headlined by master chocolatier Joe Whaley, an all-star cast of instructors takes the helm during the shop’s signature candy-making classes. Among other delicious, hands-on lessons, teachers demonstrate how to swathe pretzels in Belgian chocolate at an old-fashioned enrobing machine. Kids also learn how to dip, mold, and decorate during one-hour workshops and birthday parties that teem with edible crafts and sugary confetti.
