Traditional Chocolate Truffle Making Class

April 24, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Learn how to make simple but delectable traditional hand-rolled chocolate truffles. We will make two kinds.

You will learn how to make a basic ganache for hand-rolled truffles, troubleshooting, how to infuse the cream, how to roll, finish, and store them. No tempering skills needed for this class as we will not be coating them in chocolate.

Anyone who wishes to learn how to make chocolate from scratch. No kitchen experience necessary. Children accompanied by guardians are welcome.

How Much:
$69 pp + tax
