If you want to create your own custom chocolate treats for your Valentine, or if you just want to enjoy working in a chocolate factory, a “chocolate party” might be just the ticket.
Farris and Fosters Famous Chocolate Factory, with three locations in Orlando, hosts the parties at all of their locations. You can schedule a birthday party, date night, mom’s night out, family outing, or whatever excuse you can come up with. You get to take the chocolate creations home with you too! Farris and Fosters has different kinds of melted chocolate to work with and every conceivable topping available. There are many food items that you can cover in chocolate, including: pretzels, strawberries, candies...even potato chips! They also have over 100 molds to create special chocolate treats. They have a mini conveyor belt to coat selected items in melted chocolate.
I attended a “Mom’s Night” at the Waterford Towers store location. Eight ladies -- Laura, Iris, Allison, Connie, Michelle, Juliet, Kerry and Kelly -- donned their paper caps and latex gloves to construct their chocolate goodies. My favorite items the ladies crafted: milk chocolate “tools” (vise grips, crescent wrenches, etc), dark chocolate-covered strawberries and butterscotch chocolate cups.
