Birthday parties

Chocolissimo & Zaabär

Let's celebrate !

If there’s one thing that unites you and your friends or social group, it’s probably chocolate, so why not run a chocolate party for a special occasion or an engaging chocolate talk for a community event ?

If you can’t indulge yourself (and your friends) on your birthday, then when can you ? We believe chocolate was created for celebrating birthdays ! What better birthday party idea than a chocolate party, whipping your guests into a delightful chocolate frenzy !

Your guests will get stuck into playing with luxuriously messy melted chocolate and get crafty with creative designs, sprinkling chocolate truffles and generous chocolate bars. There’ll be delicious chocolate tasting and a whole load of handmade chocolate goodies to take home in pretty party bags. Show-off and share or eat them all yourself, either way you’ll be proud to have created such a delicious array of chocolates!

We can also add extra special touches (such glass of bubbles) to add to the fun. We’re always happy to help make a fabulously special occasion, so please do contact us to organize your birthday using the form below.

I am waiting to welcome you in our Chocolissimo & Zaabär flagship store !

What you and your guests will do

The party fun begins...

The chocolate party will kick off with a demo, led by our Master Chocolatier. You’ll discover the tempering method and why it is so important to work with a tempered chocolate. You will taste some different chocolates including the brand new Ruby chocolate.

Messy chocolate making fun

After the demonstration and the tasting, it’ll be time to play with thick melted chocolate, cooling it down to the perfect consistency, ready to begin the fun. You’ll get creative as we show you how to make great truffles, mendiants, chocolate bars and even a chocolate bowl ! You’ll impress the birthday chocoholic with your unique designs.

Fresh truffle making

Next, the piping bags come out, as everyone will learn how to make tasty fresh cream truffles. You’ll team up with the person next to you to pipe your truffles and cut dip and decorate your luxurious handmade chocolate treats from rich ganache, milk chocolate fudge, giant fluffy marshmallows, melted chocolate with all manner of lovely toppings such as honeycomb, white chocolate flakes and strawberry curls.

Goody bags

Everyone will leave with their chocolate creations, in ribbon tied bags, ready to take home and enjoy! The birthday chocoholic will also get a special goody bag.

Bubbles with chocolate ?

Although pairing Champagne with chocolate sounds natural, it can actually be quite a tricky pairing if you want to get the most out of it. The sweetness and bitterness chocolate sometimes causes it to clash with Champagnes. The sweetness brings out an acidic taste in dry sparklers. However, there are Champagnes that go beautifully with chocolate and we have selected a perfect one for you.

If you wish to share a glass of Briaux Lenique Champagne with your guests during the workshop, simply let us know when you book your event. We charge an additional 10€ per participant.

Protect your clothes and stay clean

The participants can buy an apron with our logo embroidered on it before starting the workshop. It will protect their clothes during the workshop! Complete with adjustable neck strap and a robust embroidered design that will not crack or peel, it is very high quality apron. We have two models, one for adults (10€) and another for kids (8€).

During the online checkout you will be offered to buy your apron(s) at a preferred price.

If you prefer, feel free to ask your guests to bring their own aprons from home so that their clothes stay clean. Plastic is harmful because it is ‘non-biodegradable’. For this reason, we do not provide anymore some aprons in plastic since 2018 to respect our environment.

Good to know...

All workshops are organized at our own location in the heart of Brussels. (Tram Faider)
You and your guests can use our free private car park during the event.

We can welcome up to 90 participants at the same time in our workshops.

The workshop includes coffee, tea, soft drinks and… chocolate of course. Everything the participants produce during the workshop (and not eat on the spot), will be taken home (in custom wrapping and packaging).

On the event day, all participants enjoy a -20% discount on our whole chocolate collection (Chocolissimo & Zaabär) available in store including the Choc&Play, ChocoTelegram and personalized products.

Our Chocolate Master speaks English and French during the event.

Keep in mind that chocolate melts at high temperatures. Therefore it is quite cold in the workshop because of the air conditioning.

At Chocolissimo & Zaabär we use Callebaut Chocolate for all our workshops.
