There’s nothing like chocolate to make one lick their lips and smile. Eating chocolate is something most kids love and if they do, they would love to take this class next Saturday, February 10, 2018 with the Portsmouth Area Arts Council and Children’s Theatre.

Portsmouth Area Arts Council says, “Spend an hour with us and learn three fun recipes with everyone’s favorite ingredient: CHOCOLATE! You’ll learn how to make a spicy fudge, hot chocolate bombs and how to sculpt using modeling chocolate. All the ingredients are included and you can take a small sample of each recipe home with you along with a recipe card for each station.”

They are holding classes for kids at the PAAC building located at 614 3rd street. The sessions are 9-10 am & 11 am-noon. Tickets are $12 and limited to 45 per session. You must choose your session, when buying your ticket.
