#3- Chocolate Tales
There are many shops and restaurants in Yonge and Eglinton with great selection of sweets and candies, but for the authentic experience, you might want to try doing it yourself. At Chocolate Tales they offer few pretty sweet options for chocolate making classes. These classes are also a nice choice for bridal or birthday parties, bachelors or bachelorettes. What is great about this place is the quality of their ingredients. All the chocolate is Belgian, nut free, and can be gluten free on demand. Their truffle making workshop will teach you how to use molds, how to prepare the filling, even how to decorate those sweet little delights—all before eating them, of course!
Most of the classes are taught out of The Mad Bean on Eglinton near Avenue Road, but note these chocolate mavens will come to you if you book a private party. You can learn to make truffles in your own home!
