We love parties! And you probably love parties too, except when you have to do all of the planning, shopping and cleaning up...
Have no fear, Araya is here to help you succeed and you just have fun!
All our events start with an educational portion that is intended to broadly teach you about cocoa, its origins and key aspects of the cocoa fruit and the harvesting process. Soon after, everyone rolls up their sleeves, pick their favorite ingredients and start experimenting with their creativity and practicing on chocolate bar making!
We use premium Venezuelan chocolate, made from one of the finest cocoa beans in the world, and your guest will be able to make their topping selection of nuts, caramels, peanut butter, pretzels, dried fruits, spices, sprinkle, etc.
Our parties can entertain a minimum of 10 guests, ages 6 and up, for 2 hours of fun with chocolate. The price for the event starts at $270 and each guests will take home his/her own masterpiece: 5 chocolate bar creations with the flavors and toppings they chose.
Parties for Kids:
Kids will decorate a chef hat that we will provide with markers and stickers. After the presentation they will try different varieties of chocolate (white, milk and dark) as well as cocoa beans. Finally, we will guide them throughout the process of making their own chocolate bars!
Parties for Adults:
Bring your favorite bottle of wine and get ready to have a decadent time with your friends while also pairing chocolate and wine.
Guests will learn important facts about cocoa and chocolate appreciation, and will get hands-on experience with creating chocolate bars with variety of spices and toppings.

"Araya Chocolates know how to make kids' chocolate dreams come true. My kids had the most amazing birthday party at Araya Chocolates, and shared the dream of making chocolates with some of their closest friends. Stefano is a pro at leading the kids through the history of chocolate, the different types of chocolate, and most importantly, the hands-on experience of touching, tasting and making their own chocolate bars. If you are looking for a memorable and unique birthday party experience to delight your kids, and their friends, Araya is it!" Janiya O.
"Thank you so much for such a memorable and delicious party! I have been receiving calls and texts from all the guests saying how fun and unique the party was. But most importantly, Riana and Mia loved it, and said "BEST PARTY EVER!"
While I thought a chocolate making party would be a great idea, you all truly exceeded our expectations. Thank you for your patience and enthusiasm with the kids! The love of Araya chocolate has caught on." Greta Pliskin
