Chocolate workshops with walking dinner

Chocolissimo & Zaabär

Everybody loves chocolate

If there’s one thing that unites you and your colleagues, it’s probably chocolate, so why not run a chocolate themed teambuilding and a fantastic walking dinner ?

If you are looking for a interactive teambuilding for your amazing team, then book a fun chocolate workshop at Chocolissimo & Zaabär.

Your colleagues 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 teambuilding using the form below.

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

What you and your colleagues will do

Click here to download our leaflet about our workshops with walking dinner (in French and Dutch).

The teambuilding begins...

The guests will be welcomed with a glass of Champagne.

The teambuilding will then 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 your colleagues with your unique designs and have fund with them.

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.

Wrapping, bubbles and gifts

Everyone will leave with their chocolate creations, in ribbon tied bags, ready to take home and enjoy!

A photo of the happy group will be made.

Every participant of the teambuilding may also receive a wooden box full of our Belgian pralines and engraved with your company logo and a personalized message (see example below made especially for an American Express teambuilding event)

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 for 10€ 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.

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 participants 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).

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.
