Hello

Chococo Chocolate Experiences

origin chocolates for tasting at a Chococo chocolate tasting event

We now offer a range of different chocolate experiences in each of our Chocolate Houses for both children and adults. These core ideas can be varied to suit the age & interests of your group if you are interested in booking a chocolate tasting or chocolate-themed party with us.
We can also offer more complex chocolate workshops at our Swanage Chocolate House as we can use our old chocolate kitchen opposite for events when it is not being used as our bakery.  

Chocolate Tastings for adults

We offer 2 hour tutored chocolate tasting events for adults at each of our Chocolate Houses in Winchester, Swanage, Exeter & Horsham - perfect for team building, a relaxed party with friends, a hen party or even networking with clients. These events start with each guest enjoying a glass of prosecco whilst one of our team will take you on a voyage of discovery into the world of fine chocolate from tree to Chococo. We include lots of tastings of fine single origin chocolate along the way (& top tips on how to taste, what to look for in fine chocolate & how to work with chocolate at home for keen cooks). Each guest will receive a goodie bag & a £5 gift voucher at the end of the tasting event too. 

If you would like to know more about our tutored chocolate tastings & how to book one at your nearest chocolate house, please send us a message via contact us or email us directly on: info@chococo.co.uk

Chocolate Tastings for school groups

We can also offer mini talks & tastings for school or scout/brownie etc groups in each Chocolate House. They would need to visit us for this activity, but we can then give the children an overview into the world of fine chocolate from tree to Chococo, complete with props such as our cocoa map, photos of how cocoa is grown & processed, breaking open freshly roasted cocoa beans & tasting a few chocolates too.

Children's Chocolate Parties

Our children's chocolate parties are hugely popular for birthdays!. We offer parties from x1 hour long (for the youngest chocolate lovers out there who might not be able to concentrate for too long) up to 2 hours, which would be more suitable for older children.  They will get to make & decorate a lolly, bar (and more if for one of our longer parties), find out about the world of fine chocolate with a mini talk & tasting & enjoy a chocolate fondue with fresh fruits, bananas & other scrumptious treats.
They take everything they make home with them & much (messy) chocolate fun is had by all!
If you would like to know more about costs or discuss your ideas for a private party for children, please send us a message via contact us or email us directly on: info@chococo.co.uk

Chocolate-themed Parties & Events for adults

We can host tailored events for groups of adults, especially hen parties & baby showers, networking & corporate groups in each of our Chocolate Houses. Popular options include a shorter talk & tasting followed up by a chocolate fondue, hot chocolate or chocolate afternoon tea. Some groups also like to make & decorate lollies or bars (release the inner child we say!) & then enjoy a chocolate feast. Also, if you can get to us in Swanage, you could book our old chocolate kitchen for a full chocolate workshop if you prefer that option too.

Chocolate Workshops in Swanage

We run two types of chocolate making workshops in holiday periods in sessions designed for children or adults.

Children’s workshops run for 1 hour and are designed for children age 7-12ish years old. Whilst the content will vary by season, they could get the chance to make and decorate lollies, make their own chocolate bar, dip treats into chocolate & make a chocolate rocky road sausage  Everyone takes their creations home at the end of the workshop. Hairnets & aprons are provided but we do ask that all long hair is tied back and no jewellery is worn.

Adult workshops run for 2 hours and include key chocolate making techniques such as making a ganache, dipping truffles, how to temper chocolate at home and more. These run less frequently to be honest as they are usually requested to be held over weekends & resourcing can be tricky.

Dates & prices for workshops will be posted on the news section of our website and on our Facebook page when available. We do recommend booking upfront as places do fill up quickly!
