The holiday weekend threw both me and my mom off on dates and days and we showed up on Tuesday night. The studio was closed up and locked up and I was puzzled. That's when I used my iPhone and realized that Tuesday was the 4th and not the 5th. So we did what anyone would do, laughed and went and got wine!
We walked down to Generations at 5 Points and grabbed a table in the bar area. We were greeted politely and informed they had half price bottles of wine, so of course we ordered that and some baked brie and laughed at ourselves for showing up the wrong night. Both hit the spot!

The class teaches you about the different types of chocolates that the store uses to make all of its delicious treats as well as the history of chocolate. While you learn about the chocolates, you are tasting too! NOTE: come hungry because you eat a lot of chocolate in this class!

Next, we melted some dark chocolate (the teacher's favorite) and dipped oreo "cookie pops" into it while using the remaining white chocolate to drizzle over the pop. We even learned that instead of buying the fancy $10+ utensil to dip chocolate truffles, we could use a plastic fork with the middle two prongs broken off.

Allo! Chocolat is a gourmet chocolate shop on Main Street in downtown Waukesha. They make all of the chocolate treats in the shop and also offer nuts, caramels and nostalgic candies. It is a go-to for me when friends come in from out of town and they always love the shop. I also stop in for gifts, treats for me and definitely when I have had a rough week at work. My foodie penpal this month is most likely going to get a treat from here.
