The many wonders of chocolate, from the biochemical effects on humans to how and why it changes state, are probed in this Library NExT course. We look at the history of the cocoa tree, including how it is processed and which chemicals contribute to the unique chocolate taste. Budding bakers will run an edible experiment and make chocolate cookies.

For safety reasons no open flame will be used in this class. Any necessary cooking is accomplished using a small toaster oven, a single hot plate, or a microwave. All participants must abide by the safety rules. No prior experience required.
