These days, drugstore chocolate box mainstays like the Whitman’s Sampler or the Russell Stover red foil heart seem a little less than exciting as Valentine’s Day treats. Especially with local artisan chocolate makers, like Cacao in Atlanta and the Chocolaterie in Cumming, producing bean-to-bar and hand-painted delicacies.
In fact, this year, if you want to give your Valentine a really sweet adventure, Cacao is offering chocolate workshops where you can spend some time making candy with your loved one.
It marks the first time since moving to its new chocolate factory that Cacao is opening the doors and inviting visitors to come experience its Willy Wonka-like world first hand. Spaces are limited, so you’ll need to grab a reservation at CacaoAtlanta.com, where you can find details on different workshops for kids and adults.
Will chocolates be a big part of your Valentine’s Day? Where are the best Atlanta chocolateries right now?
