Chocolate, one of your essential hen party five a day.

GoHen Testimonial

chocolate making hen do in manchester

The Beatles declared that "All you need is love…" But they'd clearly never tried making their own chocolate truffles because once you learn the secret (and the best secret of all is that it's a lot easier than you think), you'll soon realise that all you need is love and a steady supply of gorgeous truffles.

This devilishly delicious session will begin with a welcome drink. This is based on the Mayan "xocoati" as seen being drunk by the equally tasty Johnny Depp in the movie Chocolat. This ancient drink is actually the root of all chocolate as we know it and a fine place to start.

Secondly there'll be a chocolate gift for the bride-to-be, then everyone will be given an apron as things are going to get messy.

This is a wonderfully hands on class, you'll get chocolate all over your hands and a fair amount in your mouths because there's no point being so close to so much rich runny chocolate without having a taste. You'll be shown how to make two kinds of ganache, you can choose from;

All the truffles must be hand rolled which is fabulous fun and almost spiritual if you're a true chocoholic. The truffles must be allowed to set so during this time you'll learn a little about the history of chocolate and also the link between chocolate and love (yes, that's actually a thing).

Once your truffles have set you'll get decorating using a whole array of ingredients and tricks; cocoa powder, chocolate curls, coconuts, sprinkles and more…

Finally you'll place your truffles into presentation boxes or bags to take home. Each hen will make 30-40 truffles. All you need to worry about is where to hide your new secret stash when you get home to keep everyone else away from them.

All chocolate is made from green coloured beans.
The beans are 100% natural.
Therefore chocolate is one of your five a day.
You're welcome!
(Please note, that factoid is not based on any actual science whatsoever.)
