What you'll do

Your Z. Cioccolato candy making experience begins with creating gigantic peanut butter cups, followed by caramel pecan turtles and bear paws. Next you will have fun with dipped strawberries and oreos plus a gourmet pretzel rod which is dipped in caramel, chocolate, and finally Heath toffee. By the end of the class you will take home two large boxes of chocolate candies to share with your friends and family (or hide all for yourself!).

I had a lovely time at the chocolate making experience! As a local, I don’t make it out to North Beach much. I loved the atmosphere and hearing about Mike’s foray into chocolate making. Would highly recommend as a local or traveler. It was delightful.

This was such a fun class! First of all, Mike, is such a warm person and you can tell he really has a passion for his craft. We got lucky and signed up on Valentine's Day class and Mike even provided light snacks and refreshments. This is a wonderful small local business in North Beach and I am so grateful for having the opportunity of taking this class and learning more about making candies. You won't regret this class! This class is good for all levels! Don't miss this wonderful class in SF's North Beach.

My partner and I had such a fun time doing the candy making class! Mike was very knowledgeable and we met some friendly people. Bonus because it was Valentine's Day - Mike brought in wine and some appetizers. Thoughtful touch.

Mike’s chocolate class was so fun! The group class was small enough that everyone got to experience everything at their own pace. Mike had so much knowledge to share about the local chocolate industry, as well as abroad. I took this class with my boyfriend (who loves chocolate) but it would be a fun class to go solo to, too! It seemed like everyone was very happy with their experience. You get to take all your chocolate goodies home as well!

The class was fun! The group as a whole was friendly. You can go as a solo (which I did) or go as a couple/group. Mike was very knowledgeable and welcoming. You get to take home a bunch of chocolate. Highly recommended either as a local or a tourist.
