This Online Easter Chocolate making session enables us to work through 2 chocolate recipes plus learn other skills together while you are in your own home or workspace, all the while being able to communicate and see myself and other participants...as near to a face to face course as possible, while apart!
WHAT WILL WE BE MAKING? You will make approximately 18-20 delicious truffles/chocolates and create lollipops with Easter designs using transfer sheets, which you will be attractively packaging in a patterned half chocolate egg shell (supplied) with a hollow chocolate Bunny! (supplied).....and an additional chocolate treat! It is a perfect way to introduce yourself to chocolate making, or for those who just want a fun and productive time making an Easter gift at home!
Not only will you have your pretty creations, you'll have the recipes too, so you can use them another time!
