Chocolate Making Class at Chocolab Bangkok Pralines Valentines Day

Chocolate is always a good idea. And it tastes even better if you can make it yourself together with your sweethearts. One of my favourite activities in Bangkok is the chocolate making class at Chocolab (at the Sofitel So Bangkok). I have done this class a few times and it has always been a lot of fun. It is definitely the sweetest spot in the city.

Enjoy a Viennese hot chocolate before you start the hard work.

We always start our session with a nice cappuccino and an even nicer Viennese (!) hot chocolate.

After getting inspired by the beautiful decoration and the really nice cake and pralines selection, it was time for us to get started. The chef and his team showed us some of their artworks made from chocolate and explained all the ingredients we used for our pralines.

My kind of roses!

The pros among you could aim for making your own chocolate roses or a chess board.

The pralines made by the pro’s where our inspiration – you can see our results further down.

We aimed a bit lower and went for chocolate truffles made from dark chocolate and whipped cream. Our second challenge was to decorate chocolate hexagons (the one above was the “role model” made by the chef, you will see the difference to our creations in a bit 😉 ).

The team was really nice and extremely patient (some of us were more and others a bit less talented…).

Here are our results. Not as beautiful as the originals but they tasted amazing!

If you are in need for another coffee, stop by KOF – the pop-up store in the lobby area. They serve some of the best coffee in Bangkok.

KOF serves some of the best coffee in Bangkok – I like it because it is very strong. Their cookies are really delicious as well.

The session lasts about two hours and cost THB 900 (about USD 23), including all ingredients. There are two slots available: in the morning from 10 am to noon and in the afternoon from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Booking is required at least three days before the desired date.

The classes include all the ingredients and you can take your pralines home with you.

Of course, we could take the chocolate home with us in really cute boxes (for the more successful patissiers among us, some only got a paper bag 😀 ).

So many beautiful and cute things to explore at the Chocolab shop

If you have aspirations to become a hobby patissier, or if you simply love chocolate, I highly recommend Chocolab’s class. It is a really cool activity for couples, best friends and also great for kids. I also think it is a good idea for corporate team building events.

The level will be adapted to the participants. As we did the class more than once, the chefs adapted the class and taught us new things every time.
