Kids Chocolate DIY Workshop with Harriston

Who are the Chocolate Lovers here ? I'm sure all of you do. For the love of the chocolate, Mommy Jane brought Little Angels to Harriston Signature flagship store in Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras for a DIY workshop where we could make our very own chocolates.
These DIY workshop is open for public for kids above 3 years old and adults too. Incorporating 4 processes altogether, each session lasts for an hour and is open every day from 9.30 a.m. till 6 p.m. for only RM35. 

We begin our session with the chocolate moulding by tempering chocolate at the right temperature, coating chocolate moulds, moulding and unmolding chocolates. Once done, we proceed to make our lollipops by learning how to pour melted chocolate into a piping bag to achieve the desire shapes. The process includes inserting sticks into chocolate mixture and removing chocolate after it has hardened.
We also learn on the chocolate painting where the process of coating biscuits is revealed by dipping into melted chocolate and decorating it with chocolate paint and sprinkles. Ending the totality of the experience, we learn to mould Harris, the Orang Utan which can be brought home together with our lollipops and biscuits as a treat or even as personalised gift for our loved ones.

If you think that you and your kids could make a better chocolate mould than me, then head over to Harriston Signature Outlet at Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras to make one. My Little Angels enjoy the fun introduction to the art of chocolate making which packed with discovery, hands-on experience. The best thing is, we could taste it and bring our very own handmade chocolates home. The DIY Workshop proved to be an invaluable experience for me and my Little Angels to explore more on our favourite chocolates.
