An amazing time with Benoir on a rainy day here in Kenmare. Can not wait to take back home the skills I have learnt. I have eaten most of the best chocolate in the world. The children really enjoyed it. Ask for a group discount.

My daughter and I ordered a cup of joy chocolate that was unlike any hot chocolate I've ever had. It was thick and cream and rich and wonderful! I make a hot fudge chocolate cheese cake and tasted like a melted version of that. Amazing!
