Waste of time and money. If you love chocolate, spend the money on a range of chocolate, get yourself a decent chocolate cookbook and experiment at home. You will not learn anything new and you will not leave the venue with a big bag of chocolate goodies. They are not generous, despite the hefty cost of the 'experience'. (read more)

Mmmm! Considering how hung over most of us were when we arrived at the chocolate workshop rooms, it's amazing how quickly we regained our appetites! The talk at the beginning was kept light but still really informative, and it wasn't long before the chocolate appeared. Some of the hens had fun piping vanilla truffles in, um, interesting shapes, but overall the workshops are pretty classy and aimed at a well-heeled crowd, I'd say. Lots and lots of fun! Would have been nice to have a bit more... (read more)

We went to My Chocolate as part of my best friends hen (I was the honourary gay guy allowed ;-)
It was delicious and brilliant and our teacher was a darling. it was informative - I learnt plenty of new stuff - though I was more interested in the practical chocolate making side, and we got plenty of practice with that too. I highly recommend this experience! (read more)

My boyfriend and I attended this workshop last night.
I think the cost of the workshop was a little pricey for what we got.
Having two bowls of chocolate between 8 of us was a little tight. You would think they would do it in pairs. Having said that, we didnt stop laughing at the people on our table making a complete mess.
We enjoyed making the truffles, but we didnt have much time. It was a bit rushed.
Overall I enjoyed the experience. I would recommend it to a friend. Its good for a... (read more)

'My chocolate' workshops are quite possibly the biggest rip-off I've ever experienced! We paid almost £600 to play with 3 bowls of melted chocolate between 12 of us. This is something I would do with my children as there is absolutely no skill involved whatsoever. If you've made chocolate rice crispy cakes before then you're already at the same level as the instructor.
There is no 50s retro kitchen. It's a tiny room in the basement of a semi industrial building. The breeze-block walls are... (read more)

Delighted we didn't pay for this....it was a gift. The area is run-down. The building is daunting,difficult to navigate. Workshop situated in the basement,dark,dingy and scary. 1950's kitchen is run-down,dirty and needs a refurb! Tea towels filthy,sink dirty although paper towels provided. No aircon....chocolate melted as we attempted to roll into truffles. Our efforts did not resemble in any shape or form those advertised on the website. There were only two of us there on the day....

Booked the 'Original Hen Workshop' for my friend's Hen Party- and I have to say it was worth every penny!
The rooms are gorgeously decorated (1950's retro theme), and our Chocolatier was friendly and really entertaining!
I don't agree with the other reviewers about the location- it's right in central London, so I can't see how this would be 'middle of nowhere...'
We had ordered some extra chocolate martinis with the workshop, which went down a treat!
Great fun, a really unusual and fun Hen... (read more)

If there was an option to put no stars, I would have! I cant believe ANYONE would rate this as a good experience. It was a shambles. Agree with the other reviews that the premises were shabby (also in the middle of nowhere), the instructor was uninterested and impatient, but most upsetting was the fact that we spent £50 each to be instructed how to dunk digestive biscuist in melted chocolate and then decorate with hundreds and thousands. Ooooh, and we were taught how to dunk marshmallows... (read more)

Really enjoyed the chocolate, but the workshop itself is a bit of shambles. It was nowhere near 2.5 hours long, like they promised. The teacher was totally unengaged and the venue is really horrible (though the rooms themselves are alright). Not worth 50 quid! (read more)

Shorter than the 2.5 hours promised, and overpriced for what was on offer.
You have one large bowl of melted chocolate, out of which you make a couple of large chocolate 'buttons', and add cream to a small amount of it to make truffles, which you then decorate. Would have liked far more ingredients to add to the chocolate and decorate with, and more types of chocolates to make. The video on their website shows lots of fun things that are not actually offered! (read more)

Was fun t play with the chocolate, but it was way overpriced for what the event was worth. To start, you're in a basement of an awful premises (although where the classes are taught is alright). But the teacher was quite rude and rushed us out before our chocolates were even set.
If you go in with low expectations, you won't be disappointed. But really, not worth the 50+ quid! (read more)

Could have done better - we were advised that there would be unlimited wine - 2 glasses each with the addition of the staff "forgetting" to bring out any more when asked! Chocolate session was fun but rushed through!
We decorated an Easter egg with different chocolate coatings and made some yummy truffles and got a lecture on the history of chocolate.
Value for money? No! Go back? No!
The hype was not worth the experience, they could have done better. (read more)

Fantastic - I cannot recommend this enough! Making delicious chocolates in an retro 50's chocolate factory - what's not to love?! Would seriously advice any hen who wants an unusual and exciting hen party to book here! :-) (read more)
