Chocolate Tasting, Chocolate Making & Chocolate Afternoon Tea - Carlow
Meet Jim and Mary
Husband and wife, Jim and Mary started their family business back in 2001 making waffles but their love of chocolate led them to Chocolate Making and a few years later to making Ice Cream. Their passion for great tasting confectionary drives them to perfecting the best possible taste incorporating local ingredients wherever possible. Overwhelmed by the popularity of their chocolates, they soon opened their doors to visitors and today you can experience first-hand, their love and passion and of course the delicious taste of their chocolate, together with a really, warm local Irish welcome.
About The Experience
The Experience begins with a Multisensory Tasting and Interpretation of Chocolate Samples especially chosen to give you an insight into chocolate quality, texture, taste and even sound! The skilled team will explain the finer points that make their chocolate so special. Following this, you will enjoy Afternoon Tea with a difference, of course you will have your choice of Barista Coffee or Speciality Tea, but Jim and Mary’s award-winning Hot Chocolate is really a must! Accompanied by freshly baked scones, whipped Irish dairy cream and homemade strawberry jam, you will also get delicious chocolate brownies and chocolate cakes. Now to the next bit, yes there’s more! Make and decorate your very own Chocolate Moulded Creation to take home, complete with its own mould. As you wait for your mould to cool, you will enjoy a Luxury Chocolate Mallow Fondue and then on return with your moulds, you will be presented with a Chocolate Taster’s Certificate. Now this is a must have Experience for all chocolate lovers!
