Join us at York Cocoa House to discover how chocolate is made from Cocoa Beans to Chocolate Bar
Take a journey through the world of chocolate, discovering how chocolate becomes chocolatey and how it started off originally being used as money. We're very pleased the Aztecs persevered with the acidic tasting little bean, and you'll understand why when we show you how chocolate was originally created into something gorgeously sweet and creamy as we know it today.
If you're feeling very adventurous you'll even taste cocoa liquor, cocoa nibs and the raw cacao beans themselves as you learn your own chocolate favourite, you'll then learn how this wonderful ingredient is made into the chocolate bar we think of today. During the process you will have a chance to come up with your own chocolatey creation and make your own little chocolate bar using whatever ingredients you fancy.
