Baubles, bells, Santa Clauses and many more chocolate goodies were created at Arcare North Shore.
The clients were treated to an absolute delight with Belgium chocolate-making with Maria – the local chocolate expert.
Tasked with the delicate job of creating their own chocolates using the moulds provided, the clients reached into their inner chocolatiers!
‘This will be a great gift for the grandkids!’ client June commented.
At last, pink, green, red and milk chocolate Santas and baubles coated the tables as everyone formed their sweet chocolate-y masterpieces.
‘It looks lovely! I can’t wait to taste it!’ client Nancy said.
Afterwards, clients were able to decorate pre-made chocolate shapes that channelled their inner Picassos.
Some found their hidden talents while others enjoyed sneaking a taste of the chocolates.
It was messy morning with chocolate getting everywhere but the clients had plenty of fun laughing, giggling and getting creative.
The clients also experienced a sense of independence as they picked the colours, chose the shapes and put their creations together by themselves.
Their sweet tooth cravings were definitely satisfied that eventful day!
