The biggest draw was the custom Chocolate Christmas Tree station.
First, choose your preferred base – oat milk or dark chocolate. Then proceed to personalise it with over 15 toppings like sea salt popcorn, pretzel, little stars, mini marshmallows, candy cane, popping candy, and crushed pistachios.
This child-friendly activity will be a draw for little ones.
In addition to decorating the Chocolate tree with their favourite toppings, it was a delightful opportunity to be creative.
Once complete, the Chocolate Christmas Tree is presented in a gift set complete with a wooden hammer. What a smashing way to herald the season.
The cost of creating your festive chocolate is $28 for a slab with unlimited toppings. The wait time for it to be ready takes between 30 to 40 minutes.
