Introducing Chocolate Classes at the Goo Goo Shop

We’re excited to announce the launch of private group chocolate classes at the Goo Goo Shop in downtown Nashville! Grab a few friends, loved ones, or co-workers and come join us for a super sweet class.



Always wanted to make your own dream Goo Goo? Well, now you can.

We also offer classes where you can learn to temper chocolate, create your own designer chocolate bark, learn how to make ganache and truffles, and even get a secret Goo Goo recipe or two from our decadent Dessert Bar!


Learn some chocolate history and increase your knowledge while you have some hands-on fun in our informative workshops.

Perfect for corporate team building excursions, bachelorette parties, or just a group of friends that want to have some fun together and learn all about chocolate.

Every hands-on experience we offer will send you home with recipes, a Goo Goo apron, and all the treats you’ve made in class.

Currently our classes are only offered as advance group bookings, with a minimum class size of 8 and maximum of 24 due to room constraints. Haley, our Event Specialist, can help you determine which is the best format for your group, so please email or call 615-490-6685 for more information.
