Farris & Foster’s Fine Chocolates

Posted Aug 29 2010 8:46am

After lunch at Pho 88 , our group headed to a really neat chocolate shop in picturesque Baldwin Park. Farris and Foster’s Famous Chocolate Factory is a chocoholic’s heaven! But, you don’t just get to eat the chocolate– you get to make it too! :mrgreen:


We got to get our hands dirty making our very own chocolates with some help from co-owner, J. Foster Lanenga, and his staff.




“Foster” demonstrated the various techniques for making truffles, lollipops, peanut butter cups, and other goodies.


And then he let us loose in his chocolate factory! :mrgreen:




Chocolate-making is serious business to food bloggers!


Or not so serious! :lol:


Audi got a little crazy with the chocolate!!


My favorite chocolate-making technique was the dipping machine. Farris and Foster’s had just about every edible treat imaginable that you would want to cover in chocolate, including peanut butter-filled pretzels, dried apricots, Oreos, brownies, caramel turtles, potato chips, and even whole Twinkies!


Check this thing out!


For my first attempt, I went with a bunch of peanut butter-filled pretzels.





Once my pretzels were covered in chocolate, I decorated them.


Pretty! :mrgreen:


After about an hour of making chocolate, we each left with a box full of our own creations to take home with us.


How delicious do these look!?! Obviously, I’ve already dung into my stash! ;-)




Making my own chocolates was such a blast! It’s no surprise that Farris and Foster’s is so popular. Their calendar is packed with fun chocolate-making events, including Girls’ Night Out, Date Night, Birthday Parties, and other speciality parties. I wish that Boston had something like this!
