Chocolate Painting at the Hunterdon Art Museum

Chocodiem and the Hunterdon Art Museum are teaming up on Friday, March 25 at 2 p.m. for an event designed to please both palate and palette: painting chocolate eggs with dyed cocoa butter.

Participants receive two chocolate eggs for painting, truffles to sample and a demonstration by artist Amanda Wentz. Indulge your sweet tooth and reserve your space by calling the Museum at 908-735-8415 or visiting the Museum’s website at www.hunterdonartmuseum.org.

Cost is $30 for two participants. This event is for adults and children ages 6 and older.

Chocodiem, 49 Main St. in Clinton, focuses on making the best chocolate possible.  Founded in 2012, the Belgian father-daughter duo Jean-Paul and Eveline Hepp began handcrafting truffles, pralines and more. Chocodiem makes chocolates by hand in small batches in its kitchen, using no preservatives and using only premium chocolate found while J.P. Hepp traveled the word in search of the best cacao beans.

The Hunterdon Art Museum, located at 7 Lower Center St. in Clinton, presents changing exhibitions of contemporary art, craft and design in a 19th century stone mill listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It also offers a dynamic schedule of art classes and workshops for children and adults.
