Last week Freya and I went to a chocolate making workshop at Truly Chocolicious.
I had originally booked it for Leah and Freya but Leah decided that she didn’t want to do it so I took part instead. We had so much fun, admittedly Leah would have been the oldest there so may not have enjoyed it as much. She would however have enjoyed the activities, so hopefully soon there’ll be a workshop for teenagers.
The workshop started with us filling our chocolate moulds. There was milk and white chocolate in squeezy bottles, we used these to fill our moulds. Gemma showed Freya and myself how to make a simple circle pattern.
The children had a juice break and washed their hands if needed. Next we made giant chocolate fab lollies. Gemma handed out trays covered with baking paper with a lolly outline and a large lolly stick. She demonstrated what we had to do to start our lolly. We were to follow the lines using a good amount of chocolate so that it wouldn’t snap when lifted once dried.
We done our outlines then filled in each section with the chocolate of our choice. Freya done white chocolate at the bottom and added fizzy strips. Her middle layer was milk chocolate with sprinkles, for her top layer she alternated the chocolate making a stripe pattern.
These too were placed in the fridge, whilst waiting the kids played a chocolate game.
We decorated bags for the treats to go into. We were given clear bags for our chocolate squares and a sticker to seal it.
She then popped the lollies into a bag and sealed them.
If you have children aged between 5 – 10 definitely take a look and see if you can book in. There was a little boy there too who loved it as much as the girls. Freya has asked to go again so we’re going to see if we can do one of Gemma’s drop in classes.
This year we’re documenting all of the activities we do so be sure to take a look through our blog for more ideas of things to do!
