Sweet treats for Valentine’s day!
Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Oreos- learn how to dip these treats in chocolate and learn some decorating techniques with sprinkles and drizzled chocolate. The children will get samples of two candies, but it only counts as one selection.
Chocolate Clay Roses - The clay is edible. Tastes like a mix between Tootsie Rolls and fudge, but handles like Play-Doh. Kids will learn how to mold it into petals and attach them to form a rose.
*This program is presented by Kitchen Wizards of Kathy’s Just Desserts. Parents will be asked to sign a waiver.
For ages 8 to 12. Registration required.
