Learn How to Make Shiny, Snappy Chocolate with the Healthiest Ingredients 


In this 60 – 90 min class we’ll make chocolate two ways; using a high speed blender and using a stone grinder. After we make the chocolate, we’ll temper it using a really easy method.

What you’ll learn…

What Is A Stone Grinder

If you’re entirely unfamiliar with a stone grinder, we’ll get into all the details in class. This method of making chocolate is the most traditional and has been used for centuries. Before electronic machines were used this was accomplished manually using a large stone, like a mortar and pestle, but huge!

Luckily today we have various machines to choose from that are great for home use. I’ll talk about a few of them in class and demonstrate the ins and outs of it using my own grinder.

High Speed Blender

If you’re not ready to take the Stone Grinder dive into making chocolate, you might feel more comfortable starting with a high speed blender. I’ll show you how to make chocolate using your blender and go through the differences between stone ground and blender made chocolate.

Which Ingredients To Use

In this class we will focus solely on making and tempering dark chocolate, so we’ll focus on these key, easy to find ingredients. Once you know how to use these important ingredients, you can start playing with making white, blonde and milk chocolates too.


This can be the most daunting part of chocolate making for most people. It’s a technical, scientific process, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. I’ll show you an easy way to temper at home with minimal equipment. In fact, all you’ll need is a thermometer, mixing bowl and spatula.

Today has been a complete revelation and completely brilliant. I’m not really good at looking at a recipe and bringing it to life. It was so great be able to see how it’s prepared.
I can honestly say the food is the best I’ve ever tasted. I recommend Russell’s classes to anybody.
