The set dates for these classes has passed. However, you can contact us directly to schedule a class (minimum of 2 participants per class). 

In this kids course students will learn the basics of cacao, how chocolate is made and how to make and bake recipes with chocolate! Students will get hands-on experience with the techniques and tricks of chocolate melting, incorporation and baking. As chocolate can be used in a variety of ways, it can also come together with other ingredients to create tasty treats greater than the sum of their parts! Students will learn baking techniques that can be applied to any baking recipes, but especially those requiring chocolate, cacao, and cocoa butter! Each student will make their own cookies, brownies and cupcakes, yum!

Class Structure & What’s included

A brief familiarization with cacao, chocolate, and history of cacao gives the students a foundation in the ingredients and processes that make baking with chocolate possible! Kids get a chance to pass around and see actual cacao pods, beans and nibs to establish a real and physical relationship with the beginnings of where chocolate comes from!

Students will get to taste-test the difference between traditional stone-ground chocolate and European style chocolate to kick off the baking extravaganza! We believe that a recipe can easily be elevated when proper and quality ingredients are used. Even when combining ingredients to make something new, preserving the basic nature of each flavor creates something even more beautiful and tasty!

The chocolatiers/bakers-to-be will then learn how to melt chocolate to make scrumptious chocolate desserts from Cupcakes, Brownies, Cookies and Frostings from scratch! Learning how to make these various confections is all about portion, order of mixing and the process and technique of each step. When their hand-made treats are in the oven and resting, we will play Mayan and Aztec inspired games. Finally, students will learn how to frost and decorate their delicious creations!

Bring-Your-Own-Container: Each student will need a container to take home any left-overs and tasty treats to share with friends and family!

Our Cacao Beans are Different

We use an old technique called the Mayan method where the beans are less acidic and less bitter while maintaining a higher level of antioxidants. Taste the difference.

Minimally Fermented >
Lower Acid >
More antioxidants

Our beans are specially fermented for less than 3 days. This creates less acidity. Research has shown that less days of fermentation means more flavanols are maintained in the chocolate.
