15. A Sweet Saturday

What could be better than Christmas cookies? Chocolate making! Gather the family, especially anyone with a sweet tooth, and spend the weekend making delectable chocolate concoctions in the Chocolate Factory Hawkshead and constructing chocolate slabs and marshmallow sweets. To put the cherry on top, visitors are able to bring home everything they make. Fill the kid’s stockings with their own hand made treats. Chocolate making classes are offered all day so reservations are not needed.

When: All December long during a selected time slot.

Where: Hawkshead, Cumbria.

Price: Admission is £15 and reservations are not needed but can be made on the website during a selected time slot. Online bookings must be made 24 hours in advance. Family workshops run everyday at 10 am, which allows kids and parents to create their chocolate creations together. For more booking information visit the website.
