Any day is a good day for Chocolate!  Going all the way back to 1920 Morkes Chocolates continues to make high quality confections from scratch with all natural chocolate, pre butter, and fresh ingredients.  Today we will take the class called “Touch, Taster, Temper & Take Away”  This chocolate experience is the most academic of all, yet lots of fun!  We will make our own chocolates as we learn about different chocolates, some chocolate history, and practice the professional technique known as tempering.  And of course, there will be plenty of chocolate to take home! Just in case we still need more treats, we’ll stop at the Fisher Nuts outlet on the way home to sample, browse and maybe buy some candy/nuts.  We will eat lunch at the Parkside Pub across the street and then walk over to Morkes. Bring money for lunch.

Registration deadline is January 6.
