Every year we like to throw a party all around one of favorite things— CHOCOLATE. We celebrate the upcoming Holidays, teach new ideas and recipes, and have a whole lot of fun. As a thank you to our many great customers we offer a whole lot of free classes (and some smaller paid ones) over two days and fill the classroom with our favorite people–YOU! Along with the classes you will also find, store-wide sales, giveaways, samples, fun and lots and lots of chocolate. Join us for the day, an hour, or even just pop in with the family-all are invited for the store events!
Below you will find a schedule of the 2-day event classes- please note that some classes will overlap in time- so please be mindful when registering so that you are not taking spots in both classes.
