Bethlehem, PA— Be enchanted by the Goundie House’s very own chocolatier as he shares sweet chocolate, history, and magic.

In addition, the events will include special Magic of Chocolate performances by Goundie’s very own chocolatier.

During the event, guests will uncover chocolate’s bittersweet past and the delicious role it plays in American history through an engaging workshop that highlights where chocolate originated and how it was made in colonial times. Activities include a hands-on, chocolate-making demonstration using traditional kitchen equipment and the opportunity to enjoy a sweet cup of hot chocolate, made the colonial way with historically authentic American Heritage Chocolate.
