During this amazing chocolate making team building activity, you will enter the world of a professional Chocolatier as you take on the challenge of making your very own box of chocolates from scratch!
The challenge facing the teams is simple:
“Create, package, and pitch your very own box of mouth-wateringly sumptuous chocolates and truffles”
As the challenge suggests, not only will teams be expected to create their very own box of signature chocolates, but they will also need to package them, and create an airtight pitch to our team of judges, convincing them that their choccies are the next big thing!
The ultimate chocolate making team building activity
During this amazing chocolate making team building activity, participants will learn how to make mouth-watering truffles, chocolate lollipops, and giant chocolate buttons, as well as being taught how to temper, flavour, and ‘finish’ their chocolates. There will be a whole host of flavours, coatings, colours, and even a touch of alcohol for teams to use, allowing them to get creative and WOW the judges with their signature chocolates creations!
Naturally, there will be lots of tuition along the way and your master chocolatier and head chef will be on hand throughout this hands-on chocolate making team building activity to answer any questions and give lots of helpful tips and guidance. They will also give a fascinating insight into how chocolate is made into the sumptuous bars we all know and love from the humble cocoa pod!
Creating the most amazing hand-made chocolates is only part of the challenge facing teams during this event. Once the chocolates are complete, teams will need to package them up before creating the perfect pitch which they can deliver to the judges.
Once teams have completed their chocolatey challenge and all the pitches are complete, the finished products will be judged on a variety of different criteria including presentation, sales pitch, and of course – taste!
In summary, the Chocolatiers Apprentice is the ultimate, hands-on chocolate making team building activity! It’s fast, fun, and packed full of chocolatey goodness!
