NileGuide Expert tip:
Remember, the first pound of chocolate you create to take home is included in the price. Anything after that is extra and it's easy to go over, so weigh your creations often.
Besides being a great place to buy gourmet chocolate, this working chocolate factory in Baldwin Park offers nightly chocolate parties that give visitors the opportunity to to take over the factory to create and sample decadent chocolate treats. Upon your arrival, guests are outfitted with an apron and
chef's hat and then a friendly and gregarious guide gives an overview of supplies, ideas for types of chocolates to make, and a quick lesson in chocolate making. Guests are then set loose in the factory to create the pound of chocolate they'll be taking away with them.
Make such treats as truffles, peanut butter cups, and chocolate dipped strawberries, while dipping anything in chocolate: pretzels, biscotti,marshmallows, cookies, and rice crispy squares. Each station
is given its own sampling plate for you to nibble at as you go.
Farris and Foster's also does a couple's date night at 9pm on Friday and Saturday evenings - which makes for a superb after-dinner dessert experience. Try Baldwin Parks Colibri Mexican Cuisine
