We took the chocolate bar making class and really enjoyed learning about the origins and process of making chocolate. There is a kit that you can purchase to make chocolate at home, as well. The staff was really nice and the chocolate Was delicious!

I did not have time to visit madre while on Oahu. However, I mail ordered a few gifts after returning to the mainland. I had the opportunity to sample two bars which I felt were very smooth, exhibited clean nuanced flavors, and seemed to be...More
