The Team Building Event is designed to identify individual strengths and weakness and see who works well together, team members are challenged to rally together and come up with and create a chocolate-themed design. While their creations are setting, team members collaborate to generate a pitch and designate one team member to share their final creation with the judges. Teams are scored on the correlation of their design to the overall theme, as well as their presentation, the appearance of their creation, and its taste.

Over 20 different groups have already taken advantage of the class. This includes worldwide companies like Gerber-Nestle, Amway and nationwide companies like Chick-fil-A.
