After lunch at Pho 88, our group headed to a really neat chocolate shop in picturesque Baldwin Park. Farris and Foster’s Famous Chocolate Factory is a chocoholic’s heaven! But, you don’t just get to eat the chocolate– you get to make it too! :mrgreen:

We got to get our hands dirty making our very own chocolates with some help from co-owner, J. Foster Lanenga, and his staff.

“Foster” demonstrated the various techniques for making truffles, lollipops, peanut butter cups, and other goodies.

Chocolate-making is serious business to food bloggers!

My favorite chocolate-making technique was the dipping machine. Farris and Foster’s had just about every edible treat imaginable that you would want to cover in chocolate, including peanut butter-filled pretzels, dried apricots, Oreos, brownies, caramel turtles, potato chips, and even whole Twinkies!

For my first attempt, I went with a bunch of peanut butter-filled pretzels.

Once my pretzels were covered in chocolate, I decorated them.

After about an hour of making chocolate, we each left with a box full of our own creations to take home with us.

Making my own chocolates was such a blast! It’s no surprise that Farris and Foster’s is so popular. Their calendar is packed with fun chocolate-making events, including Girls’ Night Out, Date Night, Birthday Parties, and other speciality parties. I wish that Boston had something like this!

  1. That looks like a real life Willy Wonka, but without the risk of turning into a blueberry. That’s a convincing argument for visiting Orlando!

  2. This place looks amazing! Chocolate covered pretzels are super tasty (something about that salty sweet that really does it for me). Hope the rest of your trip is fantastic

  3. My dream hobby is to make chocolate all day and eat them too.

    I’ve always wanted to go on a chocolate factory tour. I had a chance in Seattle for Theo’s chocolate, but ran out of time during the vacation and had to head home without my chocolate tour.

  4. That place looks SO COOL! I would love to make my own chocolate… getting to do it yourself without having to deal with set up or cleanup, sign me up!

  5. All of your Orlando dining experiences sound amazing, but this one really takes the cake (chocolate?) I would kill to get in on some of that action!

  6. Oh my gosh, I’ve always wanted to go to Orlando for Disney Land…now I’m thinking I want to go for Farris & Foster’s Chocolate Factory!!!

  7. Boston has a chocolate making class at ChocoLee Chocolates. Its just came up on Groupon a few days ago but sold out too quickly for me – but I think I’m still going to try it out one of these days!

  8. My in-laws live in Baldwin Park part of the year! I will have to visit the chocolate shop next time I’m there! Yum

  9. how did i now know about this place?! maybe my cousins will take me next weekend 🙂
    looks like you’re having an amazing trip!
    xoxo

  10. This looks like such a great time! I’d love to make my own chocolate! I just wanted to give you a heads up if you didn’t already know, your pictures are not viewable from ipads/smartphones!!
