Chocolate is possibly my favourite food in the whole world, and I’m sure most of you would agree! I was recently given the chance to try out the ‘Create your own custom chocolate bar’ service by Cambridge company Chocolat Chocolat and could not wait to share this with you as this is a great gift idea!
I have always dreamt of being able to make the perfect chocolate for me, and thanks to Chocolat Chocolat‘s amazing service, I was able to do this!
There are five different chocolate types to choose as your chocolate’s base. These are dark (70%), dark (55%), milk (34%), caramel (34%) and white (28%). After selecting your chocolate type, you get to the exciting bit where you choose your toppings! There are over sixty different toppings to choose from including fruit (strawberry, apple, apricot, etc.), nuts (hazlenuts, almonds, etc.), spices, herbs & flowers (pink peppercorn, sea salt, lavender, etc.), confectionery (fudge brownie pieces, marshmallows, meringue, etc.) as well as gold or silver flakes for decoration. You can also choose to add a wording to your chocolate (‘I love you’).
As I am a huge fan of milk and white chocolate I chose these two as my bases, and went for the following toppings:
Milk chocolate with meringue pieces and mini marshmallows
White chocolate with strawberries, fudge brownie pieces and silver flakes
Milk chocolate with strawberries, meringue pieces and gold flakes
Chocolat Chocolat also suggest certain combinations of toppings depending on your chosen chocolate type if you don’t know where to begin! I should also mention that all the chocolates are hand made.
I would highly suggest taking a look at the Chocolat Chocolat website and trying out their custom chocolate bar service! These would make perfect gifts for the chocolate lovers in your life (or even yourself!) this Christmas.
The hand made custom chocolate bars are available for £5.95 each, £10.95 for two or £14.95 for three handmade bars of chocolate!
