I tried to invent a never-ending chocolate bar but it didn’t last 5 minutes lol!
But let’s be fair, there ain’t many foods that can cheer you up with just one bite.
I think you’ll agree with me when I say, chocolate is my lifeline.
And what could be MORE delicious than spending 2 hours inventing your own chocolate bar?
But before I go chocolate mad and tell you all about it, here’s the need to knows:
You can BOOK this chocolate workshop through Eventbrite.
Location: Rococo Chocolates Belgravia 5 Motcomb Street, London, SW1X 8JU
Cost: £39.50 per person

Rococo Chocolates Shop
With its unique and charming design, the shop itself is very endearing to passers-by. You couldn’t possibly miss this place if you tried.
Inside you’ll find a crazy array of sugary delights, from individual beautifully wrapped bars to delicious handmade fresh cream truffles.
You’ll need to take out a mortgage though – it ain’t cheap yall!
Yet the chocolate is extremely good quality and mostly organic #winner
If you’re reluctant to spend over £6 on a 100g bar, just do what I did…
…fill up on the freebie tasters ha! I probably ate £30 quids worth. 🤫
They have a little cafe inside but if you take the staircase down, it will lead you to a secret Moroccan tea garden that’s bathed in sunshine. ☀️
There you can peer through the window and catch a glimpse of the chocolatiers at work while sipping on your sickly rich hot chocolate – dairy-free option too! 🙌
Chocolate Workshop London
It’s hard to put into words, but when I enter a chocolate workshop I feel different.
Still me, but in some ways even more me. I have a fuller and more expansive sense of self.
And no, that’s not from eating A L L the chocolate.🍫
So here’s how it goes.
We were lead downstairs to the chocolate making workshop which is very small btw.
There wasn’t even enough room to swing a hubby…I mean cat!
Yet surprisingly, despite the room size, it fitted 8 peeps comfortably with a decent workspace.
First off, Nick, our chocolatier gave us some insight into the birth of Rococo Chocolates.
Nick explained the journey of chocolate from bean to bar pretty well.
But honestly, all I was thinking about was from bar to my belly!
With that over with, we now moved on to making our chocolate bars.
THIS is where the fun begins.
To decorate, we had an array of sweet and spicy topping to choose from.
I started with cinnamon sugar, then sprinkled some sugared Juniper berries and dried rose petals into my choc mold.
For a bit of a crunch, I added a few pistachios.
And for some crazy reason, I put paprika on there!
We then had to pipe Rococo’s delicious organic chocolate all over.
(seriously tempted to squirt in my mouth)
With my next bar, I just went the whole nine yards.
I just chucked the lot on.
Hazelnuts, rose petals, dried cherries, popping candy, sugared Jasmin, marshmallows, cinnamon, plus more…
I think my hubby went the whole hog also. Now that’s tasty! 😍
With the remaining chocolate, we made chocolate drops and decorated them too.
Once we finished Willy Wonkaring about, into the fridge our chocolate bars went.
In the meantime, back upstairs we went to the cafe for some blind taste testing.
SO MUCH FUN!
Wait! Don’t Chew
First off Nick explained the importance of smell when tasting chocolate.
And before you ask, no, my hubby didn’t let out a ripper!
That’s us experimenting with our sense of smell while sucking on a piece of chocolate.
Nick also taught us how to properly taste chocolate.
Simply place a piece of chocolate on your tongue and don’t chew! (I found this bit hard).
As it slowly melts, it begins to release its flavours.
WOW! I’ve never taken the time to taste chocolate before.
I found amazing flavours and textures that I’ve never experienced. It made me appreciate the quality of the chocolate, the skill of the chocolatier and much more.
Let The Tasting Begin
While blindfolded, we all had to taste the chocolate and guess what the flavour was.
This was the most delicious 10 minutes of my life! That and scoffing a load of truffles on Bettys chocolate course.
All in all, I think we tasted about 10 different flavoured chocolates.
Their chocolate is amazing! I could have stayed there all day scoffing.
Yeah, I’d be fat. But I’d be happy!
By now our chocolate was ready for demolding, so back down to the workshop we marched.
I was seriously chuffed how mine turned out.
This is one heck of an invention! Isn’t she a beauty👇
As for taste, I honestly didn’t know what to make of it.
But one things for sure, no matter how much flavour I threw at these chocolate bars, they still tasted A M A Z I N G!
We were given wrappers to pack our chocolates and a Rococo gift bag.
For £39.50, and 10% off in the shop, this course was well worth it!
If you ever have 2 hours spare in London, go on this chocolate experience. Buckets of fun!
It’s back to the chocolate grind for me
