Absolutely fantastic workshop with knowledgeable staff and a really friendly welcome. We came as a 3-generation group and I was a little worried it wouldn’t be accessible and engaging for my 9 year old. I didn’t need to worry - he loved it. I was amazed at the choice of toppings for our bars and he really loved the chocolate tasting too.

Booked this with my partner as a present. The chocolate history and tasting was so interesting, the woman presenting was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. We then proceeded to make a chocolate bar with special additions and chocolate truffles. The whole experience was perfect, very VERY good value for money. The shop owner was very welcoming and good fun too. We can’t wait to book on again!

Really enjoyed the workshop- divine chocolate, knowledgeable staff and great value for money when you consider all the chocolate you get to make and take home (and eat on site 😀), tutoring and drinks you get during the break. Just make sure that if you go after lunch you have a light lunch only!

We went on the truffle making experience, originally we booked to go in April 2020 but covid saw fit to delay our visit!
The staff are always amazing and friendly when we go to buy chocolate and the class was no different, Harry (10) enjoyed the talk and tasting session he says they were interesting without being boring so instant 10/10 and the truffle making was great fun if very messy 😂
I would say if you were considering doing this class - just do it! You will have lots of fun make some amazingly taste chocolate to take home!

Thank you Dan, Peter and team for doing such an amazing job!

Went to the chocolate workshop on Saturday and it was so worth it! SO much chocolate! Interesting to learn about the growing and making of chocolate before of course trying some. Made truffles and a box of chocolates to take away which was a fun experience, and it's really a lot of chocolates you end up with - on top of being able to lick chocolatey fingers whilst making them! The lady running the workshop made it really enjoyable (can't remember her name - sorry!) and I've already recommended this to friends. The only slight let down was that two extra people seemed to appear out of nowhere which meant it was kinda cramped

Had never visited Cocoa Amore before, but spent a fantastic couple of hours there on Saturday taking part in a chocolate tasting and workshop. All the staff were lovely, and went out of their way to make it a great experience for us. Highly recommended.

We got our 2 daughters (17 and 14) a 'Golden Ticket' for Christmas.
This is a chocolate making session for 2 which consists of:

1: Talk on the Origin and History of Cocoa
2: Chocolate tasting from across the Cocoa Belt
3: Truffle Making
4: Create your own box of Chocolates
5: Enjoy one of our Hot Chocolates
6: Gift wrap your chocolates to take home

It takes around 2 1/2 Hrs and they had a fantastic time and I have to say that the Chocolates and truffles they brought home were fantastic

When they came out they both said how good it was and that my wofe and I should also do it.

While I was waiting for them to finish I hd a hot chocolate in the cafe. This is basically a DIY thing that your kids would love. You get a hot glass of milk (Vegan options available btw) a cup of chocolate chips, a whisk and a chocolate of your choice.
Add the chocky chips to the hot milk - trying not to eat too many - and then whisk

Really worth doing

It's in the town centre so you can make a good day of it in Leicester

We attended for a chocolate workshop with the family for a Christmas get together and had an amazing time. Yasmin was very professional and friendly and made the workshop so fun. Would definitely recommend. Thank you!
