A good chocolate is as indulgent as a house where the beds are all hot tubs and the couches are all beds. Treat yourself to this Groupon.

As instructors illuminate the origins of chocolate and the distinguishing characteristics of the three kinds of cocoa bean, students sample Hawaiian cocoa beans, bonbons, and moon pies. After tasting the fruits of another confectioner’s labor, students get their hands chocolatey by making their own bonbons with molds and custom transfer sheets.

Kokoa Bar by Ricard Chocolat

Whether it’s silky dark chocolate draped over organic fruit fillings or lines of white bonbons stenciled with high-impact floral decals, Ricard Muszynski’s confections wow the eyes long before they touch palates. But Muszynski channels his experience as a gourmet chef to add a layer of depth to his creations not typically found in other candies. He sources his ingredients locally for the handcrafted confections, and Kokoa Bar uses local pineapple, papaya, and mango for their dipped fruits. It’s not just the confections that go above and beyond—bonbon fillings include chili lime, passionfruit, and honey blossom. Visitors can get the candies to go in white boxes wrapped with aqua ribbon, or linger in the café to savor gourmet coffee and ice cream.

Customer Reviews

This was a great learning experience and included samples throughout. I would recommend it to anyone interested in chocolate. My #1 takeaway: DON'T eat chocolate that doesn't have a percentage on it (candy bars, etc.) because they barely have any chocolate flavor and are typically made from coco powder... which is the least flavorful or the "leftover remains of what used to be coco" after the processing for better products is complete.
