This is what we did yesterday.
We had a class in chocolate making. They taught us the techniques for making filled chocolates, chocolate covered strawberries, cookies, pretzels and truffles. Then they let us play with chocolate for an hour!
Remember the classic Lucy episode when she and Ethel are working the conveyer belt in the chocolate factory? The machine at this shop is lovingly called Lucy. They promised us it wouldn't speed up as we were "enrobing" our creations.
We each got to make a pound of chocolate. Mine only weighed in at 3/4 of a pound so I was told to pick another 1/4 pound out of the display cases.
Her chocolate above. My chocolate below, except for the small square truffles I picked out of the case.
The shop has names for all the chocolate in their display cases.
L to R- meet John Lemmon, Rush Lime-baugh and Mint Eastwood.
