What you'll do
We begin the class, learning the principles of tempering chocolate. Tempering is the most important part of chocolate making, this is where the shine and brittle snap comes from. We paint the chocolate molds. When the fist layer of chocolate is added to the mold, the color will adhere to the chocolate. We make a filling, dark chocolate ganache. Fill and cover. Take home what you make.
