Learn to make chocolate treats

The way to a loved one’s heart is with delicious handmade chocolates. People can learn to make their own unique confections at The Chocolate Garden’s Sweet Valentine Candy Class.

The hands-on class is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 18 and again Jan. 25 inside the Black Bear Inn. Amy Thyr, owner of The Chocolate Garden, will show students how to make unique and scrumptious chocolates for just $35. In addition to the basics of working and cooking with chocolate, the class will cover use of candy molds, flat, filled, marbled and painted chocolates, truffles, dipped sweets and barks.

Thyr is a longtime chocolate aficionado and has spent the past eight years creating unique sweets and confections at South Lake Tahoe. The Chocolate Garden supplies area restaurants, businesses, private parties, weddings and special events with her original, handmade treats. A regular participant in Reno’s Fantasies in Chocolate, Thyr is adept at pleasing large crowds of chocolate lovers, while her background in graphic design contributes to her artistic flair in the kitchen.

To register for the class and for more information call The Chocolate Garden at (530) 544-4849 or visit the Web site at http://www.thechocolategarden.com.
