Hot Chocolate Stirrer Gift Sets

Our hot chocolate stirrers make the perfect small gift, particularly as we say goodbye to Summer and the cold draws in. Recently relaunched in fabulous new packaging, they are now more giftable than ever. But what if you put four of them together? Added a box? A hand tied satin bow? Well, now you’ve got something really special.

For Your Valentine

It all comes around so quickly, doesn’t it? We’ve only just recovered from Christmas fever, and it’s already time for Valentine’s Day.

Chocolate and Valentine’s Day go hand in hand (you just can’t eat a bunch of flowers), and we’ve put together a few special ideas for the one you love. Say it with heart(s)!

Hopping our way to Market

We were out braving the cold in Altrincham Market last weekend, but kept warm by good coffee and good company from the other traders.

Easter collection at Altrincham Market, 22nd April 2015

We’re very happy to report that we are moving back indoors this weekend, and are in equally lovely company at West Kirby Farmers’ Market. If you’ve been keeping track of our ever growing Easter collection, we will have the entire range on offer at West Kirby, alongside our usual confectionery. We also have some new marshmallow flavours for you to try, and our very popular milk chocolate dipped honeycomb is back, alongside our latest creation – “Hot Cross Buns”.

“Hot Cross Buns” – Spiced almond marzipan studded with vine fruits and candied orange, enrobed in creamy milk chocolate with a white chocolate cross. Tastes just like a hot cross bun, only better!

So if you’re looking for handmade eggs, or something a bit different for Easter this year, make sure you catch us from 9am-1pm on Saturday 28th in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Graham Road, West Kirby CH48 5DE. You can also pre-order all of our Easter products for collection from the market, get in touch if you would like to place an order.

Chocolate Heart Gift Box

Since our New Year’s blog post, we’ve had quite a few emails asking about the chocolate heart box we had pictured. We have made edible chocolate boxes before, usually around Valentine’s Day, for customers who want to put a message or small gift inside the box itself (we’ve even had a couple of engagement rings go into them!). However, this is the first time we’ve done one on this scale, so thought we would do another post giving a bit more detail about what was a very fun little project.

If I see another mince pie….

For our first blog post of 2015, we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank everyone who shopped with us over the Christmas period – we hope everyone enjoyed their presents!

We’ve had a bit of a break after the Christmas rush to recover from a month of manic mince pie baking, sell out markets and lots of ribbon tying! There were also some very unique private orders, from bespoke gifts made entirely of chocolate, to our first ever doughnut wedding tower:
