Edible Rose Class

Sunday May 5th: 11:00am - 1:30pm
The Gelato Shop in Empire, MI

A collaboration between GDC staff & chocolate artist Anne Boulley.

Make a beautiful edible chocolate rose for Mother's Day (and one for yourself too!). We'll combine Ecuadorian chocolate and Michigan honey to create a delicious chocolate clay. Then we'll shape them into delicate realistic roses and airbrush them with red, pink or yellow cocoa butter to make them really pop. They taste great eaten petal by petal or place them into some hot milk for the best drinking chocolate ever.

Cacao + Coffee: an Exploratory Tasting

Saturday May 11th: 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Higher Grounds Learning Lab @ Commongrounds Coop

Coffee and chocolate: a pair like no other. Grocer's Daughter Chocolate and Higher Grounds Coffee bring together our love for both of these magical tastes with a journey of sensory exploration. We'll taste coffee and chocolate paired up by terroir, exploring the similarities and differences that come as a result of sharing the same landscape, weather patterns, and soil.

Chocolate Geode Class

Sunday June 9th: 11:00am - 1:30pm
