As you can expect this is our most popular cookery challenge, we will have your teams literally up to their elbows in this hands on chocolate challenge, each team will not only have to make and brand a box from the raw materials but also complete a manufacturing order of over 100 chocolates per team (based on a team of 8) so there is plenty to take home. Groups nominate a project manager; this will be followed by a fun and interactive demonstration on chocolate making to include chocolate tempering, ganache making, dipping and finishing. The Chocolate Challenge, teams decide on a daring and diverse concept to break into the chocolate market. The project manager allocates specific tasks to each delegate such as manufacturing branding, box design and marketing, delegates are given the freedom to choose measure and weigh their own ingredients.
Each team will be expected to pipe shape, temper, and dip and package a whopping 100 chocolates in order to complete the challenge laid down by our judges (all delegates make chocolates to take home).
