Homemade Chocolate Candy: Our first Craftsy class
Jen and I have taught a bunch of classes over the years, and we’ve always loved doing it. From Brooklyn Kitchen to ICE to the 11 stops on our book tour, spreading our love of cooking and candy is one of the most rewarding things we do (and we don’t do it nearly often enough).
So we were over the moon when Craftsy contacted us and asked us to do a chocolate candy class for them. Us! A class! On chocolate! So we got to go to Denver (neither of us had ever been) and meet some really amazingly friendly and talented folks from the staff at Craftsy.
It was so. Much. FUN. Our crew was amazing, explained everything patiently to us about a million times, and didn’t mind when we had to do a bunch of takes because we forgot what we were saying or blurted out the wrong word. And I’m so, SO proud of the results.
What we ended up with was a class that covers ganache, tempering, dipping, enrobing, and molding, plus bonus tips and mini projects to do in all your spare time. It’s informative, it’s straightforward, and I happen to think it’s pretty fun, too.
If you’re not familiar with Craftsy, this is how it works: you sign up for free, then browse around all the cool classes you can take. Once you find a class you like, you purchase it and get in-depth video classes on whatever you want: woodturning, paper piecing, quilting, weaving, drawing, gardening…I mean, the list goes on and on, but you get the idea. Part of being an instructor means answering any questions students might have; so if you do everything we say and still don’t get the results you want, drop us a line — we’re there to help!
Finally, because you, dear reader are a beloved fan of Liddabit, you get to take our class for 50% off. That’s only 20 smackaroos. Two sawbucks. A single Jackson. So if you’re looking to do a little DIY Valentine’s Day chocolatiering this year, click here and sign up now!
We really hope you enjoy the class – please send us photos of all your projects, we want to see what you’re up to!
X’s and O’s,
Liz and the Liddabit crew
