Are you serious mummy? I can make three bars of chocolate and take them home all for me! And her face was a picture when I said yes. 😊

Who are Mayan Monkey Mijas?

It’s a chocolate factory and a happiness laboratory, and they certainly made us happy in the time spent in the chocolate workshop. Located in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, it’s not just a chocolate shop and café, it’s a museum, factory and a place of happiness… what more could you ask for? They have ice creams and sorbets 100% pure and natural, made with milk and organic fruits without the use of palm oil. As they state: “zero false foods, zero silliness” their coco comes from sustainable farms and communities avoiding all mass farmed goods. All this can be enjoyed in the pleasant atmosphere inside or in the outdoor terrace.


Our chocolate workshop experience at Mayan Monkey Mijas:

We did the express chocolate workshop and made three bars of organic chocolate of whatever flavour took our fancy (or in Africa’s case every flavour available). Firstly, you choose what type of chocolate you want as your base; white, milk or dark which you pour into three moulds. Secondly, you choose from the 54 ingredients, dried fruit, seeds, spices, essential oils, chocolate buttons, coffee beans, or Himalayan salt just to name a few (some surprise ones like aloe vera on offer too). If you choose white chocolate, that’s the first one you have to deal with as it sets quicker than the others. Then you add your chosen ingredients. Some, like Gramps, were very orderly others, like Africa, and I were more free style. So, once your culinary artworks are complete (or as in Africa’s case, you can’t put anything else on) they go in the fridge for 20minutes before you can collect them. Meanwhile enjoy something from the café, but don’t go overboard because you’ll have 300grammes of chocolate to take home with you.
