Afterward, learn to make your own chocolates with the help of a professional chocolate maker. Create mendiant chocolates, personalized chocolate bars, and lollies to take home with you. The chocolate making workshop takes about one hour.  

    This was a very fun activity to do with a group. Do not be late, we were because of the line outside and they started without us. We made up for it with making chocolate button blobs but we did have time to make chocolate bars and suckers. It was good high quality chocolate, milk and dark. The self guided tour after was nice but was a bit long. Make sure you get in line extra early for this. Very fun activity for a group to do!
