Buying a personal gift for a true chocolate lover can be tricky. If you don’t want to make something at home your local chocolate shop can probably help. In our case that means The Royal Chocolate Virginia Beach.
Create Your Own Chocolate Bar
The first Saturday of every month The Royal Chocolate has a “Create Your Own Milk Chocolate Bar” event. For $10 you can make your own chocolate bar by picking toppings, filling the mold and coloring/wrapping your own personalized box.
We took the kids at the beginning of September to make gifts for one of their grandmothers.
The staff was fantastic with showing the kids how to do everything. They had five “fillings” that the kids could pick from. They put all the toppings in pre-measured chocolate cups and stirred them up (yes those are gummy bears)!
Then they put them into molds and the employees wisk them to the back to do whatever they do to turn them into candy bars.
While they are gone you get to color your wrappers! They have a front and back that need extensive decorations!
The kids with the final product! And grandma loved them!
Other Stuff Inside the Royal Chocolate Virginia Beach
I was REALLY impressed with the selection and the prices inside the store. They had so many cute things that would make a nice “thinking of you” gift.
This hot chocolate was one of my favorites- the jar was $9.95 and the spoon $1.99. For $12 this would make a fantastic gift for someone wrapped in a cellophane bag.
If anyone wants to grab this for me I would love it!
You could try all their fudge flavors!
Sign me up for mango chocolate!
I bet you can’t find a THING in there you would like (wink wink).
Enjoying a treat after finishing!
If you have a chocolate lover who needs a good gift this is a GREAT idea. Just check your calendar for the first Saturday of the month!
