Our Treasure Hunt & Chocolate Making Challenge is a unique twist on a team away day. This fun and fast-paced activity is an innovative and fun way to get the team spirit going. And as an extra incentive, teams are rewarded throughout with copious amounts of chocolate!

The Treasure Hunt
The day begins with a race against the clock to solve clues through historic North London. Each team gets a treasure hunt pack filled with clues, riddles, maps, digital cameras and, of course, essential chocolate supplies. Team work and leadership skills are put to the test as teams promote a Team Leader and Time Keeper. Successfully completing the treasure hunt hinges on strong teamwork, keen observation and lateral thinking. We also expect you to use your native wit for a series of challenges – not least to get your photo taken with at least one policeman, a friendly traffic warden and, for bonus points, one of the Queen’s guard!

Platters and Prosecco Upgrade
After completing the treasure hunt, why not upgrade your workshop to include freshly made sandwich, wrap platters, Prosecco and tea and coffee.

Chocolate Making Challenge
Described as “the most delicious bonding experience possible” (from our lovely clients at Merrill Lynch), the workshop begins with demonstrations by Master Chocolatiers. During this unique chocolate making workshop, teams design and create a new chocolate product to present to our judges. After learning how to make delicious chocolates from milk and dark chocolate fudge, giant marshmallows and oodles of decorations everyone tries out  professional chocolate making techniques including marbling and moulding. The teams then race against the clock to define roles and identify their market niche before diving into creating their chocolate product, packaging and sales pitch.

The Judges
Creative skills will be to the test as teams present their winning pitches to our chocolate judges. Wigs, feather boas and other such sophisticated props are available to bring a little finesse to these proceedings. Marks will be given for innovation, teamwork and general chocolate making skills. Hilarity is pretty much guaranteed!

Prizes and Goody Bags
Chocolatey prizes will be awarded to the winning team, with marks given for innovation, teamwork and general chocolate making genius before everyone packages up their chocolates, ready to take away in ribbon-tied goody bags.
