Yes, at first glace the thought of going back to "SCHOOL" might make you sick, but this is Chocolate School my jet setters! I'm talking about the Vermont Chocolate School located in Burlington, Vermont. You and your honey can jet set to this beautiful city and take a chocolate making class of two together this Valentine's Day.You will learn the most important aspects of chocolate making ("totally "hands-on"), in a class that is only you, your loved one, and the instructor. The best part about it is, you will learn chocolate making skills that you can bring home with you. You will master how to make chocolate truffles by using a microwave and just a few simple tools. The classes are held in the basement of the Sweet on Vermont store, which sells gourmet chocolate year round. (Also available to order on-line if you can't make it there.)

The cost per person for a beginner class is $275, and $350 per person for the advanced class. If you book the two courses together in the same weekend, you can get it for $600 total. Yes, it's pricey, but it's an experience you will never forget, plus you can bring your skills home with you and make homemade chocolate in your own kitchen! Classes run from January through October, so if you can't make it for Valentine's Day you can go another weekend.
