What you'll learn in this candy making class:

Join us for an afternoon of confection-making, to enjoy yourself or to give as a gift for the upcoming holiday season (how generous!). This class is suitable for ages 12+, as long as they are registered along with an adult. 

Chef-Instructor Erica Wides will teach you how to pull and shape sugar candy, make velvetty chocolate truffles, and create your own signature brittle! You'll take your confections home in a gift box to share with others.


  • Hand-Pulled Candy Canes
  • Assorted Chocolate Truffles
  • Dried Cherry + Nut Clusters
  • Spiced Caramel Brittles


  • Please reach out to CourseHorse for any dietary restrictions.
  • Make sure to ring the outside buzzer, even if the front door is open, so we know you are arriving!


As we dip our toe into in-person classes again, we are requiring that everyone who registers for our classes be fully-vaccinated by the date of class. (You will be asked to upload a photo of your vax card before class). This is meant to create a safe and relaxed, communal cooking environment for everyone.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

The Baking Basics

Holiday Candy Workshop

Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Refund Policy

We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class. 

Non-refundable, credit only.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Missed Class Policy

What can I do if I have to miss a class during a Boot Camp?

We understand that finding 6 consecutive weeks on your calendar to book a Boot Camp can be challenging, but because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer you a make-up class if you cannot make one or more of the classes. As a consolation we have two options, for those who need to miss a class within a Boot Camp series:

1) Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or

2) Opt for our "Plan B" program:

You are welcome to attend any of our classes that still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats, as opposed to giving you a seat in a future class that would otherwise have been paid for. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing)

Plan B does not have any expiration date; just be in touch with me directly when you find a class that works for you.

Erica was very nice and prompt but the class lacked equipment. there was 1 pot, 1 broken burner, and all we did was watch her most of the time, it was supposed to be a full participation class according to the description, but all we did was watch Erica then finally at 8:15 we rushed to coat the truffles and make the candy canes at the last 20-30 minutes of the class...Wow we got to take turns stirring the ganache, for 5 seconds each, we should have had our own batches to make. The batches were so small and there was 10 people in the class. Very disappointing and won’t book with u again. This was my 3 cookie or chocolate class in 2 weeks and the only one that was good was with Katie in Brooklyn, the macaroon class in the hotel in NY and this one were the worst. Very disappointing
