The class was fun. The instructors we super nice and funny (young guys and I can't for the life of me remember their names). Lots of different varieties to suit your tastes that you could make. My daughter went well over the allotted weight for the group and it didn't cost too much for the additional. Fun little outing! Thanks!

My family (my husband, myself, and two teenagers) went there for family night. You are shown a quick video on the process of making candies, shown where everything in the workshop is, then provided some melted chocolate and set loose to create your chocolate heart's desire.

My family loved this. They had so much fun picking what to put in their candies. The chocolate is good. One thing I worried about as I am a bit of a chocolate snob.

Things to note: We were planning on doing the family night pricing, and while we could have still done that, they suggested doing the pricing by the pound as the family night pricing is meant more for toddlers or young kids that "help" the parents. Just keep that in mind if you are booking this that if you want to make more candies, and I suspect you will, you will want to take that into account.

I would recommend this experience.

A great place to make your own chocolate treats! Great for children old enough to do simple projects too! All kind of toppings and types of chocolates!

I took a t our bus of 56 senior ladies there to make candy. It was so much fun. The owners were wonderful and the chocolate was the best ever! You should go.

Please do not waste your money. We went last week for an event and the almonds, peanuts, and macadamia nuts were so stale that the chocolates we made were thrown away.

I booked an afternoon class during the week for our local community travel club. We had 14 of us there. Everybody had fun and got into the spirit of creatively assembling chocolates from a selection of liquid milk, dark or white chocolate and an amazing number of fillings or starting elements like vanilla wafers or rice crispies. (the last were to feed through the chocolate coating fountain). Megan gave us all instructions in a humerus and entertaining way and then helped us when we needed it. If you are budget conscious you can check the weight of your art along the way but honestly the price is for the experience and I went ahead an made a pound of total chocolates to enjoy with family at home. Book a group reservation in advance. Everybody pays afterwards based on the weight of chocolate each has made. They also have date nights and other ways for couples to enjoy the experience.

My friend and I wanted to have a foodie experience while in Florida, but one of our planned activities got cancelled. We decided to do Farris and Foster's chocolate making class on a Friends and Family Night.

I thought we had booked for 5pm, and as we were milling about outside the shop I got a reminder text that our class was scheduled for 7pm. Oops! We went in and asked about changing to the 5pm since we were already there, and lucked out. The later class had 17 people scheduled, the early one had only two others. So we made candies with a grandma and her teen grandson and had a splendid time.

The front is where they sell their candies, all of which have very clever names like Mint Romney. The candies are rich and decadent and really pretty to look at. The prices are standard for upscale chocolates.

For the class, you are set up with a cup mold (think the chocolate part of a Reese's), a placemat and the papers that chocolates come in on a stainless steel table. There is a machine with a melted chocolate behind one side and a wall of candy molds on the opposite side. Both ends have tall baker's racks with tubs of goodies on them: toffee, gummies, graham crackers, rice krispie treats, caramels, strawberries, pecan turtles, etc. One shelf is devoted to fillings: chocolate ganache, caramel, peanut butter, hazelnut, cherry, in pastry bags and another is toppings: sea salt, chopped nuts, sprinkles, etc. One of the workers demonstrates putting stuff on the conveyor belt through the chocolate bath, dipping fruit, filling the cups, how to make a cup, and drizzling. There are large cups of dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate. The cups have a hole in the bottom which is stoppered with a stick that has a ball on it. This enables the chocolatier to open the hole, drop chocolate into the mold, then stop the flow quickly. After the demo is over, you get to it. All the stuff in the store is fair game. You can coat and drizzle and sprinkle all you like. A 1/2 lb is included in the price. If you make more, you pay by the pound. It's pretty reasonable considering that you can make some pretty gourmet candies. The staff also provides as much chocolate as you can eat while you're making, and will make special requests. They also have a chill unit to help the chocolate harden in warmer weather. We didn't need to use it in January!

Overall, this class is super fun and you get a pretty cool souvenir out of it. It's something that kids would really get into, but is fun for the whole family.

We attended with 3 small kids and they loved the setup for a birthday party. They also offer date night packages and a chocolate counter. Well worth a visit for sweet tooth’s.

We visited here after dinner and got a couple pieces of chocolate. Each piece cost $1. Expensive chocolate and small portions. It calls itself a chocolate factory and you can have a party there.
