Apologies for the slightly shoddy picture quality in this post guys, most of them were taken in a darkish room with lots of yellow lighting so I've had to tweak them a fair bit! I just wanted to give you a little sneaky peek into the amazing My Chocolate workshop that I went to on Sunday with my sister.
My lovely mum bought this experience day voucher as a Christmas present for me and Megan and we finally got round to booking it recently - and thank god we did! When we arrived at the location of the workshop we did feel a bit wary as it was in a slightly dodgy looking warehouse type building in central London but once we got inside all our doubts faded away - the My Chocolate office was full of sweetie jars, vintage knick-knacks and fairy lights and smelt amazingly of melted chocolatey goodness.
There were about 20 people taking part in the workshop including us and we were presented with a glass of bubbly before being separated into groups ready for our first task - making a chocolate martini. This was delicious but oh so strong which may have affected the following tasks a little bit: tasting samples from around the world, making flavoured chocolate and making and dipping chocolate truffles and fudge.
I came away three hours later clutching a bag full of my handmade chocolates, feeling slightly sick and also slightly tipsy and with a teensy tiny crush on our hilarious Canadian instructor. All in all a brilliant Sunday evening and definitely a gift I'd recommend for a chocolate loving friend or family member!
