Join Leighla Molina of Corazon Verde Yerbas and learn how to craft medicinal chocolates!
In this class we will talk about the rich history of chocolate, it’s medicinal benefits as well as medicinal plants and mushrooms that pair well with its rich taste. At the end, we will get to make our own! You can always give these treats as a gift to loved ones or simply enjoy them on your own.
This class took place on Zoom in December of 2020 and can be downloaded anytime, anywhere! Below is a list of supplies to obtain so you can craft your chocolates from your kitchen along with the recording.
•A medium sized Pyrex bowl
•A medium sized pot
