We’re bringing you a fabulous way to connect with your team in lockdown! We’ve created a delicious team building activity that will be sure to create lasting memories, bond your team and heighten everyone’s spirits. For an hour you and your team will be entertained by our charismatic Chocolatier, learn new chocolate skills and make the most delicious fresh cream truffles anyone’s ever tasted – all from the comfort of everyone’s kitchen. It’s remote working at its best!
We’ve been running corporate events since 2003 and have run team building events for such forward thinking companies as, Facebook, ASOS, Google, BBC, Apple and Amazon.
WHAT IS IT
Our Virtual Team Chocolate Challenge is an online, live streamed workshop. Our energetic Chocolatier will challenge your team to work in groups to create the most outrageous, most professional and most crazy-flavoured fresh cream truffles. The best will be awarded with virtual prizes. It’ll be the best Zoom meeting of the year. Our Chocolatier teaches everyone how to mix their ganache, pipe like a pro and how to dip and decorate their truffles using techniques such as marbling and caging. Everyone will be well on their way to creating wildly fun chocolates that also taste incredible.
For everyone to craft their chocolate truffles, a box of joy will be posted straight to each of your team’s doors. This contains all the scrumptious chocolate and ingredients they’ll need (note, participants will just need to purchase fresh cream) for the virtual activity. Using the kit, we’ll teach everyone to make our Isolation Truffles:
- The ‘I’m Losing my Marbles’– a delicious dark chocolate truffle, marbled with milk chocolate and finished off with a dash of white chocolate flakes.
- The ‘Honey I’m Still at Home’ – an indulgent milk chocolate truffle, with a honeycomb surprise.
- The ‘I’m Going Coconutty’ – a yummy dark chocolate truffle, rolled in coconut and finished with a sprinkling of raspberry dust.
To also get everyone’s creative (and competitive!) minds working before the workshop, we’ll also send over our tips and tricks on amazing flavour combinations – all from ingredients you’re likely to have in your kitchen cupboards! Our favourite kitchen cupboard creation is our gingerbread spice truffle, drizzled in dark chocolate and topped with orange zest and sea salt.

In your welcome email, you’ll get:
- Equipment list for each team member (super simple stuff!)
- Blog Post: ‘Easy Guide to Tempering Chocolate’

BEFORE THE WORKSHOP
There are 3 simple steps to take before tuning in…
You’ll need to:
- Let us know your team’s postal addresses so we can get their chocolate kits sent out.
We’re all about getting creative and making quirky chocolates so we recommend everyone raids their cupboards for all sorts of spices, sweet treats and decorations for their chocolate truffles.
On the day of the virtual workshop, make sure everyone tempers their chocolate BEFORE we start the online workshop. We’ll send you our Blog Post: ‘Easy Guide to Tempering Chocolate’ once you’ve booked. This will only take 20-30 minutes.
We look forward to ‘virtually’ seeing you soon!
