Raw Chocolate Making - Hands-on Chocolate Making Workshop with York Cocoa House
Choc Chick's Raw chocolate is made with the basic ingredients that go into chocolate making. You will work with the raw ingredients of cocoa powder, cocoa butter and agar nectar, a natural fructose used to sweeten.
During this hands-on workshop all participants will get stuck in, working with the raw ingredients to create actual chocolate. Once made you can add your choice of ingredients to make your chocolate into an interesting chocolate bar of your own creation.
You will need to allow your chocolate products to set before coming back 1 hour later to beautifully packaging your creation to take home and show off, share or maybe just enjoy!

When & Where
York Chocolate Festival
Join us for the 4th York Chocolate Festival taking place across York from 3rd - 6th April 2015
The city of York has had a long and distinguished history with the confectionery and chocolate industry, even back in 1781 the city boasted 8 confectioners for it's 17,000 inhabitants. Today the Nestle Chocolate Factory still creates a million Kit Kats a day, whilst the city has a pungent, comforting smell of dark chocolate lingering over it on roasting days. Many of York's population have had family that once worked in the confectionery dynasties of Rowntree, Terrys and Cravens, and everyone has a lasting memory of their favourite chocolate bar, many of which were created in our fair city.
