At Van Otis Chocolates, we love to share all the pleasant memories that come with enjoying our tasty treats. Whether you're taking a tour of our factory and seeing what our chocolatiers accomplish behind the scenes, or enjoying a class to learn to make some of your favorite confections, our team is here to help share their love of food.

Our classes for September through November 2018 follow. Our most updated listings (and link to purchase tickets) are here:

  • Caramel Madness: Participants will learn how our delicious, creamy caramel is made, and will learn how to cut caramel and dip it in chocolate - and even take some home. Thursdays at 5:30 PM through November 15, 2018. 
  • Chocolate Overload: Are you a chocolate fanatic? If so, this class is for you! During this hour long class, you will learn the basics of tempering chocolate, make a chocolate ganache filling, and prep, fill, and cap molds. You will then get to decorate and pack up your treats to take home with you. Tuesdays at 5:30 PM through November 13, 2018.
  • Truffle Making: Come take part in our hands-on truffle making classes right here at Van Otis Chocolates, which run every third Saturday of the month (except December, March, and April) from 9am-1pm.

Want a behind the scenes tour of Van Otis' candy factory? You can take a "behind closed doors" look at how we get all of those yummy things inside chocolate and try your hand at some of the candy making tasks. (And the nice part is if it doesn't turn out exactly right you can eat your mistakes.)
