Join us this month to make Chocolate Truffle Spiders! Our monthly meet-ups are a time to create community, meet a special guest, and learn a hands-on kitchen skill. This month, we will learn to work with chocolate, make truffles and create edible treats just in time for Halloween. We will also sample and share these treats with guests for "A Dark and Stormy Night" event on Satuday, October 19th.
