Chocolate Workshops run by Magdalena Marsden

chocolate courses

Cocoa & Heart chocolate courses are run in small friendly groups in our own chocolate kitchen. I've been running my chocolate courses since 2011 and I love sharing my chocolate making skills with others. Many of my students have started their own chocolate businesses, building on what they have learned during my courses.

My chocolate making courses are always 'hands on' and very practical. You will have your own work station with all the equipment you need to create your own chocolates. There is always plenty of chocolate tasting, whether it's exploring different varieties of chocolates such as Origins Chocolates or Cocoa & Heart own chocolates.

We have plenty of chocolate books for your inspiration, whilst you have your cup of tea and you are always welcome to ask me any chocolate question you like.


Our chocolate making classes are held at Cocoa & Heart's Victorian Kitchen in Bexleyheath in South East London. There is an easy access from London (Zone 6 London Travelcard) and Kent, Essex and East Sussex (we are close to A2 and M25). You can find directions & location here.

We can accomodate up to 3-4 people on our premisses and for large groups we can also come to your venue. We are happy to travel within London, South East London, Kent, East Sussex and Essex.

what people said

Thank you so much for the chocolate making course yesterday. I really enjoyed it and will be having a go at chocolate tempering soon! My husband loved the chocolate bark topped with dried fruit and said it was nicer than a similar one he bought recently from the shop on the high street!

Thank you so much for our amazing day yesterday. We were all buzzing about it on the way back home. I shared my chocolate truffles with my friend, who loved them and her favourite one was the lemon curd truffles. We are all planning to make some more soon and I can't wait to get started!
