HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
Chocolatiers conceptualize and prepare confections and displays made from chocolate. They are intricately involved in the process of production, overseeing others and preparing the recipes to be used. Chocolatiers are responsible for choosing what chocolate to use, tempering, and revising the methods used in making these sweets before testing the finished product. They often have knowledge about the history of the craft as well as the preparation processes that help them determine if the final quality is acceptable.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
An associate's degree from a bakery and pastry arts program is not required but is highly encouraged, as is additional training at a chocolate school. Apprenticeships are also helpful. It's not uncommon for someone in this field to begin as a pastry chef or baker before becoming a chocolatier.
