Making Chocolates Infused with Medicinal Herbs + Superfoods
Did you know that cacao, the primary ingredient in dark chocolate, is one of the most antioxidant and magnesium-rich foods? But most chocolate on store shelves is overly processed, and loaded with sugar and additives, depleting its potential nutritional power.
In this hands-on workshop, we will make dark chocolate that is truly health-promoting, while still being extremely tasty. Erin Antosh, Herbalist and Founder of WTGG, will teach you how to infuse CBD (Cannabidiol from the hemp plant) into chocolate, hide the not-so-tasty medicinal herbs in creamy fillings, use edible flowers for decoration, and add “superfoods” to boost the nutrient density of your “no longer guilty” pleasure.
The medicinal properties of the herbs we use in the chocolate creations will be discussed, so you will understand how you can make chocolates for particular wellness goals. Additionally, you will learn about the power of raw (unpasteurized) honey in supporting wellness, as we will use local raw honey exclusively as a sweetener.
You will have the opportunity to taste medicinal-grade chocolate during class and you will go home with two of the truffle chocolates you make in class (if they make it out of class before being eaten)!
NOTES: We suggest wearing comfortable clothing, preferably clothing you don’t mind getting a little messy. This is partially a hands-on workshop. Your event fee includes herbal tea to sip during the class, one chocolate truffle to taste during class, and two chocolates you made to take home. The chocolate you will take home will need to be refrigerated soon after the class. Please inform us of any allergies prior to the class and we will do our best to accommodate.
