Leeds Chocolate News
Latest Leeds Hen Party and Chocolate Making Workshops News
Here’s Chocolate Collectives latest news about all things chocolaty that we’ve been involved in, in and around Leeds and the North West.
Making chocolates is not just for Christmas!
Chocolate Collective was approached to be part of a Christmas event at Temple Newsam House. This interesting Tudor-Jacobean house, which is just outside Leeds City centre, was to host for the first time a “Chocolates for Christmas” event. The event was to include a Deluxe chocolate workshop which meant each person made 30-50 truffles using Belgian dark chocolates, a house tour, which included seeing a gold cup that was owned by Henry VIII for chocolate drinks, plus tea and cake to finish off the afternoon.
The event was oversubscribed and was deemed to be a great success. Watch out for more dates in the New Year as Temple Newsam plan to run the event again.

Chocolate Making Workshop testimonials coming thick and fast!
Chocolate Collective has received a number of great testimonials recently for our Chocolate Making Workshops, including a couple of special ones specifically tailored to Hen Parties in the afternoon. Our "Express Hen Party Workshops" are normally run on Saturday mornings but we like to be flexible and will happily adapt our longer afternoon "Deluxe Chocolate Workshops" to suit any special needs you may have. Here's what our customers recently had to say:
Bride-to-be Sarah Robinson, who organised her own "Deluxe Chocolate Hen Party Workshop":
Thank you so much for the Chocolate Class for my hen party. Everyone had a brilliant time, and we all had a real laugh during the class. The chocolate we made were good, and everyone I have spoken to since, has really enjoyed them. A big thanks to Rizpah too who ran the class on your behalf. Sarah Robinson
Jason Robinson, who attended one of our Deluxe Chocolate Workshops:
I just wanted to say a huge thanks. I really enjoyed my chocolate truffle making experience in Manchester! Rizpah was brilliant and explained everything really well and the truffles were tasty too. Jason Robinson
Vikki Moore, who received a Chocolate Workshop Voucher as a Christmas present:
Just wanted to say thanks again for the workshop on Saturday afternoon - we both really enjoyed it (and the chocolates have mostly gone!) Just a quick question - what was the make of chocolate we used? Craig proper loved the milk chocolate and I wanted to get him some if possible, but have forgotten what it was called! Vikki Moore
Tejal Patel, who also wanted a special "Deluxe Chocolate Hen Party Workshop":
Just wanted to say we all had a fabulous time yesterday at the deluxe hen chocolate workshop. The truffles are great and I will definitely enjoy making them again! Tejal Patel
Alan Kitchener, who surprised a chocolate-loving friend with a place on a "Deluxe Chocolate Workshop":
Hi Louise, Really enjoyed the course on Saturday at the Novotel in Leeds. It worked particularly well as a great surprise for my friend, appealing to both her creativity and her love of chocolate. Happy for you to quote me on this. Regards, Alan Kitchener
Leeds Hen Party Chocolate Workshop Praised!
Chocolate Collective were delighted to receive the following testimonial from Samantha Fountain, who attended one of our Hen Party Chocolate Making Worskshops in the heart of Leeds City Centre.
Leeds Hens make "adorable little bags of truly scrumptious Belgian chocolate truffles!"
Hi Louise, I just wanted to send a quick email to say thank you for the very enjoyable chocolate workshop which I attended with four of my hens on Saturday in Leeds.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, and the end result is some adorable little bags of truly scrumptious Belgian chocolate truffles!
The way you explained everything was clear and easy to understand, and making the truffles themselves was in a nice relaxed atmosphere, and we all feel confident enough to try them again at home very soon.
Thank you once again for an excellent afternoon, a lovely way to spend time with my favourite girls!
Chocolate Madness hits Leeds City Centre
Chocolate Collective have headed over the hills and are now offering Express and Deluxe chocolate making classes, courses and workshops in the heart of the City Centre of Leeds. Having enjoyed great success with the Saturday morning workshops designed for Hen Parties it was time to show Leeds the fun that Manchester hens have been enjoying. The Deluxe Saturday afternoon class is designed for all chocolate lovers be it individuals or groups.
Here's a testimonial from one of our Leeds Deluxe Chocolate Workshops:
Chocolate Making Workshop Course in Leeds surpasses expectations!
Hi Louise - just to say how much Stuart (birthday boy!) and I enjoyed your chocolate workshop yesterday afternoon in Leeds. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting but the experience certainly surpassed my expectations! I dread to think how many extra calories I consumed whilst participating but secretly loved every one of them!
We shall certainly recommend you and your workshops. Once again many thanks for our lovely initiation into the art of truffle making!
Regards, Patty and Stuart, Hull
