Looking for a separate and luxurious bachelor outing? Enjoy a delicious luxury chocolate workshop with a lot of glamour, fun and bubbles with the next bride !!
When eating chocolate, the level of serotonin increases in our blood. This is a body own stimulant that gives us a euphoric feeling and makes us feel irresistible. Just as irresistible as that delicious chunks of shiny chocolate that melts on your tongue.
Chocolate also contains phenylethylamine, a substance that secretes our brains when we fall in love. And that warm feeling of bliss when munching and sucking on a chocolate is then again caused by the endorphins that are in chocolate.
I am waiting to welcome you in our Chocolissimo & Zaabär flagship store !

Messy chocolate making fun
We start with a word explaining a lot about Belgian chocolate. What is ‘tempering’ and why is it necessary? Then you get to work on your own with the guidance of our Chocolate Master, using different techniques: moulding, enrobing… You will learn how to fill a shape and apply a pastry bag.
You’ll get some funny anecdotes also during the whole workshop. You will do some funny lollipops in penis shape and much more.
The master piece is a beautiful chocolate high heel shoe that you will mould and decorate on your own.

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...

About our store
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 traditional or more exotic spices. One of the aspects that nudges Zaabär out of the ordinary, bar the exceptional and unusual combination of chocolate and spices, is the unusual vacuum sealed wrapping in which the chocolates are kept in. This offers a much longer conservation time for all types of chocolate.
The Zaabär factory was redesigned completely in the summer of 2018 and has now become the new Chocolissimo & Zaabär store. This partnership between two Belgian companies offers a tremendous space (600m2) entirely dedicated to chocolate experiences. It serves both as a workshop and a store. The shop invites visitors to explore the world of chocolate through an array of chocolate samples, workshops and so on, so come visit us!
