$16 for Chocolate Tasting for Two ($32 Value)
Chocolate tastings include samples of eight chocolates from different exotic locales or paired with different flavorings. Instructors lead groups around the world of cocoa with samples from Ecuador, Madagascar, and Columbia, or combined chocolates with mint, sea salt, peanut butter, caramel, or other delectables/spices.
Tastings are held Monday-Thursday at 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m.
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
The sweets at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory taste all the sweeter after witnessing the hard and delicate work that goes into their creation. During engaging visits, staffers entertain guests by hand-dipping crisp apples into burbling vats of caramel or fashioning silky bricks of fudge atop traditional marble slabs. They don't just tease the eyes, though. They also treat tongues to free samples, and even lead chocolate-tasting classes in which they provide mint- and sea-salt-infused samples of chocolate from around the world.
In addition to tastings, chocolate-making classes encourage customer participation, with instructors offering up the fresh ingredients stored on site to students who wish to learn the fine art of chocolate making. During these classes, they walk guests through the delicate process of making clusters infused with nuts or fruit, or melting milk or dark chocolate to fill a mold.
