WCNY Gets Hands-On With Fine Chocolate

Special & Social Events Committee

Back by popular demand! Last year's sold-out, hands-on, make-your-own chocolates event at Voilà Chocolat returns to the Wharton Club of New York with a new chocolate-making project!

On September 16th, join other Wharton alums while you make and take home 10 chocolate lollipops (~1 oz each) -- great for sharing with others or for indulging yourself.

Wharton's own Bojan Stoyanov WG'99 and Elaine Boxer WG'02, along with other partners, opened Voilà Chocolat to the public in December 2014. Voilà Chocolat is a unique place where everyone -- not just highly-trained chocolatiers -- can experience the fun and magic of crafting beautiful, delicious chocolates with friends, family and colleagues while learning and applying traditional, artisanal chocolatiering techniques.

The innovative startup has been featured by national media. An impressive client list -- which includes Chase, Google, Microsoft, UBS, and Unilever -- have made Voilà Chocolat a go-to destination for team-building activities and events, and they have earned consistently superlative reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. Most recently, Voilà Chocolat's head chef, Christophe Toury, was named one of Dessert Professional Magazine's Top 10 Chocolatiers in America.

Now it's your turn! WCNY and Voilà Chocolat you to experience this unique and delicious concept -- hands-on -- at an exclusive event on Friday, September 16th at 6:30pm.
  • Socialize with other Wharton alums while learning the secrets of working with fine tempered chocolate
  • Make, customize, and decorate your own chocolate lollipops ("Voilàllipops") to bring home with you -- to share with family, give as gifts, impress your colleagues, or just to enjoy yourself!
  • Enjoy a glass of beer or wine, or sample Voilà Chocolat's handmade, artisanal hot and frozen chocolate varieties -- which Zagat has featured among the "most interesting hot chocolates in New York." An a la carte beverage menu will be available, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices ranging from $4-9 (Prosecco and fruited Belgian ales $10-$15)
  • Enjoy an informal discussion about the business concept and plans for Voilà Chocolat in its second year.
