The One Where We Learn To Make Chocolate Candies

As part of our anniversary weekend extravaganza, we went to Oh! Chocolate for their chocolate class. I was lucky to get discounted tickets through LivingSocial for the class. At $60 a person it's not cheap but well worth it.
So Saturday we headed to Bellevue Square and Oh! Chocolate:
Once you arrive they give you either hot chocolate, tea, coffee or a mix of hot chocolate and coffee. We both choose the awesome mocha :)
Once class starts they talk to you about chocolate. Where it comes from, how it's made, etc. Then you taste some different chocolates:
Starting at the top it goes coco nibs, baker's chocolate, dark chocolate, a mango habenaro truffle, semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. White chocolate is not really chocolate. And I never really like white chocolate but theirs is pretty good.
After the tasting then we got to the dipping:
We each got a cup of milk and dark chocolate. They had pretzels, potato chips, marshmallows, oreos, graham crackers, strawberries and blueberries to dip.
Here's Tai tempering his chocolate before he started dipping.
Here's what we walked home with:
A ton o'chocolate! I highly recommend this class. It was so worth the money.


  1. Holy Chocolate...that looks divine!!!!

  2. I'm drooling over here. Think I might have to go have a Nutella snack now!

  3. Wow, that looks like so much fun! I admit, I'm incredibly jealous, I would love to take a class like this with hubs!


Shiny! I love comments.
