Chocolate Making Workshops

Introduction to Chocolate Making

With a long and distinguished history of chocolate making, York really is the home of chocolate, Rowntrees created Kit Kat, Smarties and Aero, whilst Terrys created the Chocolate Orange and the rich dark All Gold collection. Join us to learn how to make your own chocolates that you can take home, show off and share, or maybe just enjoy. Our chocolate making workshops are an introduction to the art of chocolate making and take place in the gorgeous setting of the Mansion House, the official residence of The Lord Mayor of York.
