Fathers Day Chocolates 2017
Sunday 18th June is Father’s Day in the UK so we thought we would share with you our choice of Fathers Day chocolates.
We have a new Summery Chocolate – The Gin Cup a layer of minted strawberry purée on top of a gin and cucumber ganache. A Silver award winner at the Taste of the West Awards 2017. We’ll be putting together our mixed chocolate collections for Father’s Day with the Gin Cup, a Pale Ale caramel made with Butcombe beer, our 2017 Gold Award winning Champagne Truffles and 2017 Silver Award winning Brandy Butter Truffles and Madagascan inspired Silver Award winner 2017 the Sambirano. We’re also including some of the lovely Elderflower infused ganaches we’ve been making.
A unique and unusual Father’s Day gift choice is our Gold Award winning chocolate Salami.
There is of course no actual Salami in the recipe but a delicious combination of chocolate, cranberries, hazelnuts, pecans, brownie, spices and raisins soaked in Mount Gay rum. It’s very rich, extremely delicious and sure to bring a smile! If your dad has a slightly sweeter tooth there is also our equally delicious Peanut Caramel version.
Our unique Caramel Praline Chocolates ‘The Bish’ were the overall Supreme Champion winner at the Taste of the West awards 2016. We’ve presented them in a double foiled box and they make a very special gift.
The first stages of the 2017 judging at the Taste of the West awards have been announced and our Champagne Truffles won a Gold award. They come in a foil blocked box of twelve.
