Oh! Chocolate

Valentines '10 I gave Colby a gift certificate for a chocolate class at Oh! Chocolate in Bellevue as I thought it would be a fun date night.  Well, 1 year later and 1 day before the certificate expired we finally made it to  class :)  I must say it was well worth it!  The founder's great-grandsons taught the class and were highly entertaining!  Here is a look at our plates when we arrived:

This was just a tasting plate so we could learn about chocolate and discuss the different characteristics tasted with each one.  Plus we were given sipping chocolate when we arrived. 

Before we got knee deep in chocolaty goodness!

Whoops my bad!  I was dirty before we even began tempering the chocolate!

We were given dark and milk chocolate in HUGE cups to learn to temper.  We didn't get any more pictures beyond this as I think I had chocolate up to my elbows by the time we were done!  We given endless supplies of pretzels, chips, strawberries, blackberries, oreos, graham crackers, and biscotti.  Colby was one of only two men in the class but he held his own quite well!  I would highly recommend this class for a fun date.  Plus you get to take a ton of chocolate home!!
