Choose from Three Options

  • $25 for a chocolate-tasting class and box of chocolate truffles for one (a $50 value, including tax)

Participants can attend any class in the Chocolate 101+ series. Check their website for class listings.

During one-hour sessions, pupils explore the flavour and creation of chocolate, touching upon the growth of cacao beans, the ethics of production, or the fillers used in mass production. Students sample cocoas of varied origin and composition culled from numerous manufacturers before tasting Xoxolat's blended bars, such as dark chocolate brimming with sea salt and peppercorns, tortilla chips and lime, sour cherry chile, bacon, and many others. After class, guests receive a box of chocolate truffles to savour at home or share with friends. A schedule of class times is available here.

Modelled after sweets from classic European chocolatiers, Xoxolat's award-winning chocolate makers concoct an assortment of bars, truffles, and artisanal chocolate creations.

In addition to selling an assortment of gourmet chocolate bars and truffles, Xoxolat holds a Chocolate 101 class where participants learn cacao bean-facts and the ethics behind eating chocolate Easter bunnies.

A very informative introduction to chocolate and how it is made. Came away with a better understanding. Also bought a few yummy bars at the end of the session.
