Leave a comment

If you’ve ever walked down Pine Street on your way to the world-famous Pike Place Market, then you’ve walked past the chocolate-scented dream that is The Chocolate Box. Step inside and you’re surrounded by the best chocolate that the Northwest has to offer including Fran’s, Theo, Chocolat Vitale and more! From the dazzling hot chocolate bar to the tempting display case of artisan truffles, The Chocolate Box is a chocolate lover’s dream come true.

chocBut, it’s not just a chocolate shop! Chocolate tours, wine and chocolate pairing classes, make your own truffles and chocolate bars, and custom parties for special events. This place is practically perfect in every way.

Urban Wine and Chocolate Tour – Enjoy a 3 hour jaunt through Seattle’s own wine “region” where we’ll ride in a comfortably appointed van, accompanied by a guide who is an expert in the Washington wine industry, and visit several wineries as well as the wine bar at Chocolate Box.

Tour de Chocolat – One of our expert staff members will greet you with possibly the world’s best hot chocolate from Seattle’s own Chocolat Vitale. We then feature a short overview of where and how cacao is grown, along with lessons on the right way to eat fine chocolate. You’ll be driven to Theo Chocolate in Fremont for their world-famous factory tour and sampling. Then it’s back to Chocolate Box, where you’ll get to make your own chocolate treats as we show you how to temper chocolate. You’ll also learn how to properly dip fun things to make a yummy confection of your own, incorporating fun ingredients like pretzels, Oreo’s, or fruit.

Truffle Making and Wine Tasting – Start your evening with tastes of local bubbly and hear an introduction to Washington wines by our knowledgeable staff as well as an overview of the artisanal chocolate world and how we select the perfect chocolate for truffle making. Then the chocolatier takes over with lessons about making ganache, infusing flavors into chocolate, and coaching you through the making of your own, unique truffles. We’ll provide an exciting buffet of perfect coatings for your truffles and a gift box to take them home. And to make your class even more fun, you’ll also be sampling Washington wines that pair perfectly with the truffles you’ll be making. Oh my!

Custom Bar and Confection Party – Make your very own unique and delicious chocolate bar and decadent chocolate-covered confections. Available most any day for groups up to 10 in the cozy special event area at Chocolate Box, you and your friends/colleagues will learn a little chocolate history before diving into the fun of making your custom chocolate bar from melted artisan chocolate and a huge buffet of goodies and inclusions designed to please any palate!
