1 hour
Group size
Up to 20 people

Join an expert baker in Budapest for an online chocolate making class.

There’s never a bad time for chocolate. So instead of just grabbing something from the store, why not try your hand at being a chocolatier yourself in a chocolate making class online? Join Tour Director Bea, who owns and operates her own cafe in her home city of Budapest, Hungary, for a live, interactive chocolate making class. She’ll teach you to make simple but scrumptious chocolate nonpareils, as well as your own edible chocolate bowl. You’ll feel like a master chocolatier as you place your handmade sweets into a handcrafted bowl of chocolate—just try not to eat your bowl right away! As you learn how to make chocolate following Bea’s expert instructions, she’ll tell you all about Valentine’s Day in Hungary. Although not a traditional Hungarian holiday, it’s now celebrated by many Budapest residents. Bea’s creations are beloved throughout her home city, so you’ll be sure to leave this chocolate making class with impressive sweets to share with friends and family.
