Turning Kids into Chocolatiers

My daughter, Simone, has never met a chocolate that she didn't like. So I surprised her one day after school with a visit to the most amazing candy shop she'd ever seen.

After a quick tasting, tour of the menu and lesson in chocolate making, we set off into candy land. In less than an hour, she squeezed, tapped and sprinkled her way into chocolaty bliss in under an hour. She made about 25 chocolates, not including the ones she ate while we were there.

The team was very patient and child-friendly. We were offered beverages for purchase (we chose the house-made hot chocolate, of course.) Adult beverages were also available. And had I noticed beforehand, I would've certainly imbibed. Maybe next time!

 I loved it. Can we live here?

 She said it was the coolest thing EVER.
