It's chocolatey, melting, and indulgent -- and amazingly easy when you know its secrets, including the best chocolate to use, and how to add your signature hints of flavor. You'll find out all this as you make this dessert together from beginning to end then savor your accomplishments while dreaming of Paris . . .

Bouchons (French for "corks") were a well-known classic French treat well before Thomas Keller made them popular at his gastronomic restaurant The French Laundry in Yountville. These can be found throughout Parisian bakeries, including the boulangerie of famed Parisian bread baker Max Poilâne. These are delicately moist bite-size little cakes, packed with cocoa flavor and richly studded with chocolate pieces -- and baked in a special (yet easy-to-find) mold to take on their traditional Champagne cork-like shape. In this class you'll become an expert at making these delectable treats that are easy for making at home and sure to impress! We'll discuss all the ins and outs of baking with chocolate as you prepare these together from scratch.
