Ready To Make Beautifully Designed Candy Bars? 

Learn how to re-create your favourite childhood candy bars and develop new, “adult” candy bars with the base recipes and techniques taught in this class.

Ready to make incredible candy bars that are healthy?

This class is more technical and multi faceted than the Fundamentals of Raw Chocolate class. It will open your mind and expand your creativity by teaching you new skills and chocolate techniques.

It’s not just about flavour combinations, it’s also about texture combinations and visual layering.

When you start combining pastry and chocolate, some new rules apply and so much more possibility opens up.
This class is full of “next steps”, new tips and tricks to working with chocolate and ways of combining crunchy, gooey and crispy to create incredible chocolates.

Elements covered in this class …

Blonde Hemp Candy Bar

This bar has all the textures, so it really hits the mark as a candy bar. It’s also a simpler one to make as it requires no shelling. All layers are hand formed using no moulds which, if you’re not comfortable with shelling a mould, means it’s a little easier to make and requires less experience. As with all my recipes, the main components are versatile and can be changed by simple tweaks here and there to make an entirely different bar.

Black Sesame & Passion Fruit Candy Bar

You can think of this one as more of a Dessert Bar than a traditional candy bar. This bar is mould formed using two different shades of chocolate to create an elegant, striped finish. The inside layers are a crunchy black sesame feuilletine and a beautifully fruity Passion Fruit Praline. As always, each layer is totally versatile and teaches you an awesome base recipe to use over and over again to create new candy bars each time.

Cleaning and Polishing Moulds

This might seem like an obvious point, but caring for your professional moulds is very important. The way you care for them will ensure longevity of the mould and a brilliant, mirror shine on the chocolate.

Shelling & Capping

No matter how much experience you have in this, you can always refine your technique and learn something new. My technique for both these applications has changed over the years as I have experimented more and gained more experience. I’ve finally got it down pretty rock solid and feel confident with both shelling and capping. In both this and my bonbon classes, I share invaluable learnings I’ve had and the tips and tricks I have learnt along the way.

Amy WebsterFounder of Simply Raw, Zurich Switzerland

Just like becoming an expert in wine–you learn by drinking it, the best you can afford–you learn
about great food by finding the best there is, whether simply or luxurious. The you savor it,
analyze it, and discuss it with your companions, and you compare it with other experiences.”
