We loved our chocolate making class at Choco Museo! We learned so much and made delicious treats. The class did end up being about an hour longer than we expected but that was totally fine. We left with bons bons and truffles and made a delicious hot cocoa too. Highly recommend for a fun experience in Cusco!!

It was awesome The only thing I would recommend is to put in the description that you have to pick up your chocolate in 40min. I didn’t know about that and wasn’t expecting to stay an extra 40 min that day

This was a very fun and informative workshop for our family of four (two adults plus two kids ages 7 and 14)! We had a great time and were very proud of our finished products at the end of the workshop!

I had a lot of fun learning about the process. They were super nice and really helpful!
