Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in a free truffle-making class sponsored by Cococo, or try their luck at Primal Eats’ Guess the Ingredients Challenge for their secret chocolate creation.

The Granary Road vendors will have all sorts of other chocolate treats and gifts that you can purchase for chocolate lovers in your life for the holiday season.
