Overview
More
Based in Burton's recently refurbished Victorian Market Hall, we offer chocolate making experiences for all ages & abilities. So what is The Kandy Factory? It's a place where you can have loads of fun making chocolately things. Think of it like 'paint-a-pot', but you can eat it and you get to take away everything you make on the day ! From bars, lollies and fun moulds, to popping candy pizzas, stiletto shoes, vanilla truffles & plaques. Our kids birthday parties are very popular, together with visits from groups such as Brownies & Cubs, Special needs groups, care homes & nurseries. Works outing & Hen dos are also popular. We also run a number of different workshops, such as making handmade chocolates, and also have a regular Thursday night 'Bring a Bottle' evening from 7pm to 9pm (advanced bookings only) where you can relax with friends while making something delicious to take away. As well as the chocolate and candy creations we also sell a range of sweets, plus hot & cold drinks including slushes, our Ultimate Hot Chocolate and range of yummy ice-cream milkshakes.
