Work That Satisfies

If you’re ready for a change and want to be your own boss, this is the perfect career. You can be creative, use high-quality ingredients, and feel great about the work you do. You’ll never have to hard sell… because everyone loves chocolate!

What You'll Be Learning

  • What chocolate to buy, where to source it, and three methods of tempering chocolate.

  • How to store and make chocolates ahead. Also, long shelf life recipes.

  • Handpainting & airbrushing, using more than 20 popular design techniques.

  • Creating custom molds and tabletop displays.

  • Candy recipes every chocolatier should know.

  • Hosting Tastings and Pairings

  • Basic business advice & safe kitchen practices.


  • How long do I have to complete the course?

    You have 6 months to finish the course, so you can work at your own pace and get the most out of it. Plenty of time to ask all your questions, share and discuss things with other students, watch Anne’s LIVE demos, and join in on weekly Q&A sessions.

  • What supplies do I need?

    The most important supplies are listed below, after the Testimonials section. For a complete list, you can email me at:

  • Will there be quizzes and reviews of our work?

    Yes—they help you to see how well you’re grasping the lessons and can identify any areas you might want to ask questions about. I also like seeing how well my students are doing, because that helps me identify what I might want to do in a live demo.
