Let's make chocolate in the heart of Royal Windsor!  Visit Dr Choc's Windsor Chocolate Factory and discover why chocolate is the best medicine.  Situated opposite Windsor Castle, our chocolate-making workshops are perfect for adults and children.  You can become a chocolatier in just 15 minutes!

We also have a cafeteria service with various styles of coffees and teas. The perfect balance of creamy textured milk combined with a rich and intensely bold espresso. Our Hot Chocolate is the best in town as it’s made with our own organic chocolate couvertures.  We also have a selection of cakes and cookies to go with your coffee and hot chocolate. 

Please note face coverings are now required, and all workshops will be at a reduced capacity for the safety of our guests and our staff.

Chocolate-making workshops in Windsor

We offer a selection of chocolate-making classes. Come inside the factory and make three bars of chocolate. Celebrate your birthday or make someone else’s really special. We offer you a different celebration where you can watch chocolate being made and taste our freshly-made chocolate.

Express workshop - 15 minutes

In this speedy workshop each participant will pour their choice of chocolate into a mould of their own and then decorate with around 30 different toppings including fruits, nuts, seeds and much more, creating three large bars of chocolate to take away with them.
Ideal for an addition to your day in Windsor or something to keep the kids occupied. This workshop takes around 15 minutes to complete and then around 20 minutes to cool and package; make use of our cafe facilities while you are waiting or come back any time before the shop closes. Our express workshops run all day, every day, so pop in and make some delicious chocolate with us - no need to book!

This workshop requires a minimum of two participants.

MiniChocolatier workshop - 30 minutes

In this more in depth workshop you will make & take home:
3 bars decorated with toppings & try out marbling
Dipped caramelised fruit in chocolate of your choice
Dipped chocolate truffles, Hot chocolate on a stick.

Your chocolate will take around 15/20 minutes to set and package. So while you wait you can enjoy a yummy drink and cake in our cafe upstairs, explore our chocolate shop or head into Royal Windsor and pick your chocolates up later that day.

This workshop requires a minimum of two participants.

Chocolatier workshop - 45 minutes

You will get a real taste of what it is like to be a chocolatier in this fun-packed introduction to chocolate making. Not only will you get to taste our chocolates, you will also be hands on and fully involved in making lots of goodies that you get to take away with you.

To kick off we will taste our ethically sourced organic, palm-oil free chocolates to discover which is your favourite. From there we will start by making the shells for our bonbons. Whilst our bonbon shells are cooling we will move on to making three large chocolate bars in which the participant can decorate with around 30 toppings. Within this workshop we have time to explore some creativity and intricate chocolate techniques such as marbling and half & half bars. Next we return to our bon bons and very delicately pipe our fillings and cap the chocolates before returning them back to the freezer for their final cool. Then we move on to the dipping part of the session and begin with handmade truffles and then glazed fruits, dipping into a chocolate of your choice. We then turn to the final part of the session: demolding the bonbons.  There is also a little surprise for the leftover chocolate but you’ll have to come and give it a go to find out what it is!

Workshops are ideal if you are spending a little longer in Windsor, if it's a rainy day or to celebrate a special occasion. Our Chocolatier Workshop runs every day, but we need a little notice so make sure to book ahead of time. This workshop takes up to an hour and includes a bag of goodies to take away with you within 20 minutes; make use of our cafe facilities while you are waiting or come back any time before the shop closes.

About us

We both have a passion for chocolate and are fascinated about the origins of chocolate which were initially only available to royalty or used medicinally.

In 2017, we both independently stumbled upon a delightful chocolate factory, “Mayan Monkey in Mijas”, and we remember our children’s faces were full of delight when making their own bars of chocolate. We fell in love with the idea of ethically sourced ingredients for producing delicious artisanal chocolate and enabling other children (and adults) to enjoy that experience.

According to ancient Mayan texts, cocoa is of divine origin and is considered a gift from the gods.

As medical doctors who specialise in children, we decided to set up a chocolate factory in the home of royalty and so “Dr Choc’s Windsor Chocolate Factory” opened, with an aim to share the chocolate-making experience with all.

Chocolate is known to have medicinal effects – being an antioxidant, cardio-protective and neuroprotective properties as well as being a luxurious food to enjoy.  For us, chocolate is the best medicine!

We invite you to come to make your own chocolate, enjoy the experience and treasure the memories forever.
