Class Description:

Join Chocolatier Ruth Kennison for a sweet, playful, and scrumptious chocolate adventure. This exclusive class is like a golden ticket to your very own chocolate factory, with room for just 10 lucky participants. It's all about having a blast and indulging your inner chocolatier.

Chocolatier Ruth will work her magic, turning melted chocolate into tempered chocolate bars. You'll be left in awe as you witness the chocolaty transformation, but that's just the beginning of the fun.

Time to strut your stuff at the toppings bar, where you become the artist. Go wild with sprinkles, pretzels, nuts, raisins, and more, creating your very own chocolate bars that scream 'YOU'! And speaking of screams – the hot chocolate bomb! It's the bomb-diggity trend that's taking the world by storm. Imagine a shiny chocolate sphere with a secret stash of cocoa and mini-marshmallows. Drop one into a cup of warm milk (or your fave milk alternative), and watch the magic happen as it unleashes a flavorful explosion, transforming your drink into a rich and velvety hot cocoa extravaganza.

Each participant goes home with not one, but two custom-made hot chocolate bombs and several of your very own chocolate bars. Don't miss out on this delightful, whimsical, and oh-so-playful chocolate-making party! Grab your spot now for a chocolatey adventure that's as fun as it is delicious.

About the Artist:

If you truly love chocolate, here’s your match: Ruth Kennison is L.A.’s “bean-to-bar chocolate queen” and number-one chocolate educator according to KCRW’s Good Food, The New York Times and others. Her sold-out classes cover every aspect of the chocolate-making process, from sourcing cacao to sprinkling pixie dust on delectable bonbons. Ruth is resident chocolate diva and chocolate instructor at The Gourmandise School, and founder of the The Santa Monica Chocolate Society (yes, a real thing). She trained at The French Pastry School in Chicago and the Callebaut Chocolate Academy, and travels the world, tasting, speaking and learning about the best chocolate. She is a popular international speaker about all aspects of chocolate and a frequent judge for chocolate awards. She created The Chocolate Project to share her love of chocolate and to help people find their “chocolate palate” and become better chocolate consumers. Find her at @chocproject and @smchocsociety.
