Find out what it would be like to be a chocolatier, where chocolate is both your art and your medium, and have fun piping, shaping and tasting your very own hand-crafted chocolates (while filling up on unlimited tea and coffee too) with this Learn the Art of the Chocolatier with Chocolate Craft, Hampshire. Its Saturday in the heart of the Hampshire countryside there's something sweet in the air, and most of it's wafting out of the doors of Chocolate Craft as visitors get to the task of getting their hands busy working with both the professional chocolatiers and the sweet ingredients at hand. You'll join them and try out making your own chocolates by moulding, decorating and piping to your heart's content, until you've got a handful of cocoa-based works of art that would make Michelangelo shed a tear. Adding in a healthy taste of competition, you'll also decorate your own chocolate lolly, with the best decoration winning a prize for the piping pro that made it. Wrap all your chocolates up in a neat box and ribbon and you're good to go, with some tasty treats to show off to your family and friends (or scoff all on your own)! Chocolate Craft have been awarded the Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor.
