Santa’s elves aren’t the only creatures who can make candy for the holidays — you can, too. Channel your inner Willie Wonka with today’s gift-worthy deal from MAKEchocolates: pay £24 for a two-hour Luxury Chocolate Truffle-Making Class for one (regularly £49) or two people for £47 (regularly £98).
Your giftee will be kitted out with everything they need, learn the health benefits of chocolate, watch a demo on making rich cream ganache and melted Belgian chocolate, have a tasting (yum), and then have a go at making their own truffles.
Add a flavour like orange, raspberry, or peppermint; and then cut, dip, roll, and decorate them by hand. They’ll even get coloured ribbons and truffle bags to wrap up your goodies — meaning you can give this stocking stuffer with the caveat that the recipient re-gift you the truffles they make.
Pretty good deal from LivingSocial, and perfect Christmas present if you have been beaten by the snow like I have this past weekend! £24 for a two hour chocolate making class – that’s a decent value in my book. Not an absolute bargain, mind you, but a good price. Just a pity though that they’re not offering more of a discount if you buy a voucher for a couple (£47)!
The only worry I have is about the class itself and MAKEchocolate; doing a quick Google search doesn’t bring up the company’s details at all, and worryingly, its being held in a pub, The Phoenix. One would have expected perhaps a professional kitchen or a cooking school!
And again, with many LivingSocial deals, there is crucial missing information. There’s nothing about class times or dates, which I would think is quite a crucial bit of information to know before committing yourself to buying a class.
