If your bestie loves a truffle or 10, book a Newcastle Chocolate Workshop for her hen weekend. This magical masterclass takes place in a stylish hotel located near the River Tyne and covers everything a girl needs to know about the sweet stuff. Highly interactive and almost orgasmic, it covers everything from piping and cutting Belgian chocolate truffles to tasting them – although we're sure you won't need any help mastering that bit!
Think pure indulgence from beginning to end. Each chocolate making hen party starts with a dipping sesh at a giant chocolate fountain, which keeps running for the duration of the workshop.
When everyone's got a taste of the good stuff, it's straight down to business! Hear the fascinating story of how chocolate came to be and watch a master of the art temper chocolate up close. After that, it's your turn to have a go at shaping, decorating and packaging your own truffles.
Newcastle chocolate workshops get booked up months in advance so get a wriggle on if you want to snag a spot for your hen weekend.
