Our award winning Christmas Chocolate Gifts are here! From handmade Chocolate Penguin Snowglobes to our award winning Chocolate Salami. Yes it’s the return of our famous Chocolate Penguin and Robin Snowglobes complete with dessicated coconut snow.
Our Chocolate Penguins and Chocolate Robins have an enduring pathos and are great fun to make, each one is individual and unique. Some flutter their eyelashes, some have moustaches, part of the fun is finding your favourite! But don’t leave them together at night – the mischief they get up to! They’ve even won their own award being named Best Novelty Chocolate 2013 at the International Chocolate Conference at the British Library, London.
New for 2013 is our range of delicious Christmas Fruits and Pralines in chocolate of course. Packaged in brightly coloured gift boxes and tied with ribbon the individual fruits are wrapped in colourful twist glassine so you get double the surprise.
Choose between Brandied Figs – handmade chocolates with Brandy ganache and honey poached baby figs. Liqueur Cherries – Kirsch soaked Morello cherries in fondant and dark chocolate. Stuffed Dates -Medjool dates filled with orange blossom scented marzipan in dark chocolate. Brazil Nut Pralines -a whole brazil nut with almond praline in a milk chocolate shell.
Our Chocolate Salami made an appearance earlier this year winning a Silver Award at the Taste of the West Awards. It’s a deliciously moist recipe made with chocolate, hazelnuts, cranberries, pecans, ginger, raisins and a good dose of rum and brandy.
Christmas television schedules wouldn’t be complete without repeats of the Two Ronnies and we’ve tipped a nod to one of their famous sketches with a pack of ‘Fork Handles’…. sorry that’s ‘Four Candles!’ A pack of four Salted Caramel filled chocolate candles perfect to share at the Christmas table.
For the Christmas Stocking we have Milk Chocolate “Magic” Beans which crinkle in a little velvet pouch. Perfect for little and big children as a stocking filler.
Cocktails are a firm favourite at Christmas and also with the Lick the Spoon Chocolatiers! After extensive research (hic!) we’ve incorporated them into some delicious new truffle baubles to hang on the Christmas tree . Choose between the Cherry Bakewell -milk Chocolate truffles flavoured with cherries, Kirsch and Amaretto. The Snowball -white Chocolate truffles flavoured with Advocat rolled in lemon sherbet. Finally the Rusty Nail – milk Chocolate truffles flavoured with Drambuie and Scotch Whisky.
Last but not least our award winning chocolate coated Florentines make a return this year.
We would bake these florentines just for their delicious buttery, nutty caramel aroma. The good news is, they taste as good as they smell!
