Everyone leaves with a certificate as well as a sample bag of items made on the day.

We require a minimum number of 6 participants to run the class. Should there not be sufficient numbers the week prior to the class date, we will contact you to reschedule your booking. The class runs for 1.5 hours.

This can be held as a PRIVATE class just for your family and friends or work group for 6 or more delegates at no extra charge. Please call Rebecca on 0414701477 to book a private date of your choice.

Please note this class uses MILK chocolate. (If you book a private class of 6 friends you can chose other options)

The 1.5 hour class of tempering and chocolate making is less theory based than the 3 hour class and more finished chocolate making. Therefore if you would like to book to MAKE chocolates and take MORE home, this 1.5 hour class is the class for you as in the 3 hour class your fee go to paying for the instruction and theory elements.

In ALL classes, students can eat as much chocolate as they like during the classes. Licked clean bowls are encouraged!!!!

Loved it, highly recommended

We had so much fun. Rebecca was awesome at keeping everyone involved and explaining the processes as we went. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone. We had a cross section of people in our group - young and old, family groups and singles. We all had a great time. The chocolate was delicious and the 'all you can eat' mantra went down really well.!! Thanks Rebecca - fantastic fun.

Curious about chocolate? Look no further! This is one of the best ways you could spend an hour and a half on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Rebecca and her staff took us on a chocolate-making odyssey, from the characteristics of different types of cocoa bean, to the tempering process itself, to the moulding of the finished product. Rebecca's energy was infectious, as she explained some theory behind the process of tempering, all the while guiding us as we spread 6-7 kilos of chocolate on a marble slab, spread it out and then gathered it up again. We were able to make a block of chocolate (decorated with lollies if you wish), raspberry hearts (with real organic raspberries from NZ), chocolate lollipops (with edible cocoa butter decoration) and finally giant chocolate freckles. All of these were divided among the students to take home at the end of the class! Needless to say, we were invited to sample as much chocolate as we could during the class. I am now the proud holder of a Sydney Chocolate School certificate, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone of any age who loves chocolate and has a curiosity about how it is crafted. Five stars!
