Hot Chocolate Workshop at Delmanor Glen Abbey

Is there a better way to beat the cold and snow of a Canadian winter than with fresh made, straight from the cocoa bean, hot chocolate?

With the expertise of Sean Chubbuck, who arrived with his press in tow, the residents of Delmanor Glen Abbey witnessed how cocoa beans can be transformed into a cup of sinfully delicious hot chocolate.  Glen Abbey resident Myrtle, assisted with this transformation while Sean used his knowledge (and muscle) to demonstrate the process.  Residents watched keenly while listening to Sean’s very interesting historical count of chocolate making.

This wonderful aroma from the demonstration lured staff and passersby to stop in to taste Sean’s creation.  With the smell of chocolate throughout the main floor of Delmanor Glen Abbey, everyone felt more inspiration to hold on for warmer temperatures that are on the way!

Delmanor Glen Abbey’s expert panel of residents and staff came up with the resounding verdict of DELICIOUS!  Everyone noticed the dramatic taste, flavour and aroma that comes from fresh made hot chocolate over that of store bought varieties.  It was such a popular treat that the residents are almost looking forward to next winter so that they can enjoy more hot chocolate in the chilly weather…….well, almost!
