Great interaction with the host who makes sure you are doing the right thing and making good chocolates! We made the chocolate shells, ganache, circle chocolates (can't remember exact name) with fruit and nuts of our own choice and then we filled our own chocolates. Plus we drank hot chocolate! Definitely worth the experience and you get exactly what you pay for. Value for money compared to others that I came across.
Tasty and fun
Guy_M, Jul 2022
Oh my gosh, this tour was so much fun. It was started right on time. The ladies had everything well prepared. They explained step by step and was very easy to follow. The location is cleaned. We all made our own samples and got to take home a bunch. We also had some hot chocolate that one of the instructors prepared and it was delicious. Class was very fun, thank you ladies for wonderful memories.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? For anyone who enjoys a taste of local culture, enjoys this sweet treat, and enjoys learning something new/creative, this class is for you! It checks all the boxes- plus it’s FUN! The leader that we had was calm in the midst of a large group of people, she had everything impeccably prepared, she made it entertaining with her music and stories, and it was just an all around fantastic experience! Plus, you get to take home some delicious chocolates!
Great Experience!

Fantastic Experience.

This was and awesome experience. Our instructor Mara was knowledgeable, patience and kind. The chocolate was amazing including the hot chocolate drink at the end. I see why it sells out quickly.
Fun experience!

Nice experience, host was knowledgeable and helpful. Location is a bit tricky to find as no external signs . It does get Very hot in upstairs rooms that we used but cool and spacious in downstairs room. Came away with 21 praline chocolates plus half a dozen mendicant chocolates.
So Worth It

Krista_K, May 2022
We had so much fun learning about some of the history of making chocolate. The hands on experience was exciting for all of us, and of course, tasting the final product was the best! We had a great instructor who really made the whole experience fun.
Amazing Workshop, Great Instructor
Vannelyn_M, May 2022
The workshop was a lot so enjoyable. Gotta meet interesting people. Agatha, our instruction is amazing and always on the rescue when we have questions. She has a lot of stories about chocolates and is the life of the workshop. Of course, the chocolates are yummy...

Good but Could be Better
dboskie, May 2022
I enjoyed the idea of the class but felt like we were rushed and didn't get to ask questions or have time to learn more about chocolate. I wish we had at least 3 hours. I also would have liked to have other fillings other than nuts and raisins to cut the bitterness of the dark chocolate. Peanut butter, caramel, or nougat would have been lovely. I would pay extra for these recommendations also.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thanks for joining our workshop. We are planning on developing a longer and more advanced class, but believe me, 2.5h is the right amount of time for most people. Our staff always welcomes any question at any time during the workshop, especially during the moment we wait for the chocolate to solidify in the fridge. I am happy you had such a good time that you found the experience too short. Titch
Chocolate Belgium
Shannon_M, Apr 2022
The experience was good once we started however we had a session for 10 am and the worker just didn’t show up to work so we were standing outside for 30 min and if someone didn’t call I wonder if they would have even said anything. Also we felt rushed at the end, once we were collecting our chocolate we made the lady who was pushing them out with a ladle was rushing and broke at least 5 of the chocolates of ours which we spent 3 hours making , and that happened to the other guests as well. Overall I liked the idea but more execution on the owners of this workshops. Hopefully they aren’t always like this
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Dear Shannon, thanks for joining our workshop. I admit we had an issue that day as our colleague didn't show up for work. That's an extraordinary situation and that's totally our team's fault. We made it up to you by organizing a special session later that day and giving you an extra 1kg of complimentary chocolate so you could do the workshop again at home. I am happy to to read you had a great experience overall, hope you will make chocolates again in the future at home and look forward to see you at our other experiences.
Great experience
Louisa_G, Apr 2022
We would highly recommend this class! One of the best things we did in Brussels and the chocolates are so tasty!
A wonderful experience
Janette_F, Apr 2022
An excellent workshop with friendly, helpful staff. I would highly recommend this experience.and would gladly do this again when we return to Brussels.
Delicious workshop.
omdelia, Apr 2022
This was an excellent workshop on making chocolates. We learned about the tools and methods used to make chocolates. Our young instructor was an excellent teacher. We also used high quality chocolate and tot was delicious. We made enough to fill two boxes. When we were done, he made everyone a nice glass of hot chocolate from real chocolate and milk boy the powdered stuff. Nice use of time as we waited for our chocolates to harden in the feeder. I highly recommend this class. Wish we had time to do the waffles class.
Enjoyable experience!
Yushan_L, Apr 2022
It was a very fun experience! The teacher was great. She was straight to the point, funny and friendly. The chocolate we made came out very nicely so that was a plus. The venue was not difficult to find either. It was one of the highlights of our stay in Belgium and definitely would recommend to anyone who’s interested in making some Belgian chocolate.
