Cacao Pods


This class is designed for the serious chocolate maker and meets over three consecutive days. On the first day, you will learn how to temper chocolate and how to make a ganache in two flavors of your choice (2 1/2 hours). On Day 2 you will learn how to make your own transfer sheets, how to use polycarbonate molds, and how to prepare slabbed ganache for subsequent enrobing (3 hours). On Day 3 you will learn how to enrobe pallets and rolled truffles and how to complete molded chocolates (4 1/2 hours). Various decorating techniques will be taught, including chocolate transfer sheets, applied decorations, luster dust, and tool marks. Approximately 75 bonbons will be created (three flavors of ganache). Choice of milk or dark chocolate. Limited availability in November and December.

Prices start at $450.00 per person for a class focused on ganache bonbons.  Extra fees apply for lessons in caramels, nut-based bonbons (gianduja), or pate de fruits.  Classes are held in Jamaica Plain, MA and limited to three people per class. 



Share the fun with a private chocolate party! FRC will come to your location to teach you and your friends how to make artisan chocolates. This class focuses on the final steps in chocolate making - enrobing and decorating. Parties take approximately three hours.

You will learn how to make ganache filling, how to roll your own truffles, mold your own chocolates, and make dipped chocolates. Each participant will take the chocolates made together home to enjoy or give away (if they can part with them!). Some packaging materials will be provided (e.g., boxes, ribbons, candy cups). Approximately 24 bonbons will be created per person (four flavors).

Dark chocolate will be used. Three flavors of prepared ganache will be provided and a fourth ganache to fill molds will be prepared at the party.

Prices start at $375.00 for a group of up to 7 people within the greater Boston area. Up to 14 people may be accommodated (if your space is large enough) for an additional $50.00 for each extra person. Parking and mileage charges may apply depending on location.
