Have you ever wondered what being a chocolatier would feel like? Wait no longer! At The Belgian Chocolate Makers, every Saturdays, you can now create your own traditional Belgian chocolates with your friends, family or colleagues in our public workshops in the heart of Brussels.
During our public workshops, you will learn how to temperate correctly the chocolate with a complete demo made for you by our chocolate workers. You will get lots of explanations and tricks from us and we will allow you to dive into the fascinating world of chocolate. After the demo and the explanations, you will make your own truffles, mendiants, finally but not last, a tremendous and personalized chocolate bar.
Our weekly public workshop lasts about 1 hour. We are going to make everything from scratch and no previous cooking experience is needed. Each participant makes over 10-15 chocolates by herself/himself including mendiants, truffles and even a personalized chocolate bar.
We provide everything needed: cookware, ingredients and of course experience. With assistance from start to end the participants don’t need any previous cooking experience to attend our public chocolate workshops. Kids (min 6 years old) accompanied by at least one participating adult are welcome too.
After a short introduction, we will go through the whole process, split into teams and start tempering the chocolate!
During the public workshop you will also discover the fourth chocolate. After dark, milk and white, ruby is the most extraordinary chocolate discovery in 80 years. This gift of mother nature surprises and bedazzles. It brings a completely new chocolate taste and colour experience, born from the ruby cocoa bean without adding any colourants or fruit flavourings.

The chocolate factory Zaabär was founded in 2007. The creator was inspired by a wide array of spices floating around the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. Zaabär was created as an extraordinary combination of fine Belgian chocolate and spices from around the world. The idea is to let your taste buds roam free across the world tasting various more exotic or traditional spices. One of the aspects that nudges Zaabär out of the ordinary, apart from the truly exceptional combination of spices and chocolate, is the unusual vacuum sealed wrapping in which the chocolates are kept in. This wrapping offers a much longer conservation time for all types of chocolate.
The Zaabär factory was redesigned completely in the summer of 2018 and is now The Belgian Chocolate Makers. We offer a tremendous space of 600m2 entirely dedicated to chocolate experiences with both a huge workshop and an amazing chocolate store. We invite all our visitors to explore the tremendous world of our handmade Belgian chocolate through an array of chocolate samples, workshops and other activities, so come visit us!
