Family Truffle Making Workshop with Ovedia Artisan Chocolates

March 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm


Celebrate your love of chocolate with the whole family! Satisfy all your wildest cravings and share a sweet moment with friends, family or a significant other making chocolate side-by-side.

  • First, our Ovedia Artisan Chocolate expert will present a short tutorial on where chocolate comes from including a real cocoa pod and cocoa beans, and the process a cocoa pod takes to get its final state.
  • Then, the chocolatier will teach the attendees how to make dark chocolate ganache. While the ganache is still warm, participants will be encouraged to think of the ganache as fondue, and will be invited to dip bread to taste this incredible treat.
  • Attendees will then be given instruction on the process of making (and eating, of course) a French Rolled dark chocolate truffle. Attendees will be given chilled dark chocolate ganache to participate in the technique and then presented with four to five different options to roll each of the 12 truffles. A box will be provided to take your confections home.

This class is designed for families with children age 5+. It is not a drop-off program; at least one adult is required to attend.

Decorations: We’ll provide 4-5 decorations in which to roll your truffles. Toppings may include, but are not limited to: ground chocolate, candy sprinkles, non-pareils, graham crackers, confectioners’ sugar and/or pretzels.

This class contains dairy and nuts; unfortunately there is no vegan or nut-allergy safe option for this class. Please email appletonfarms@thetrustees.org if you have allergy questions.

Member child: $28; Member adult: $28

Non-member child: $35; Non-member adult: $35
