Chocolate week 2013 in Cocoa... What's your Favour??

So last week was officially dedicated to chocolate (although every week is for us!), so we thought it'd be fun to ask our customers to unleash heir inner Willie Wonka and tell us their dream chocolate combination... The best flavour will be sold in the shop and the winner will receive a slab of their very own chocolate. Very exciting indeed! 

We set up a demonstration area in the lounge at the back of the shop and customers could pop in and watch the magic happen right before their eyes.. All the chocolate we made was available all week for customers to sample in the shop.

We got some incredible flavour requests... Here are just a few... In fact we had so many we might extend the Chocolate celebrations and make some more this week...

Blueberry Burst... Dark chocolate sprinkled with gold glitter.. One of our favourite customers Jennifer Booth came up with this one. 

60% dark chocolate with Salted Caramel & raspberry... Our very own Cocoa girl Evie Brailsford requested this chocolate. It really works!  We used special sea salt from the Algarve and gooey French caramels. I never thought about putting fruit with salt and caramel but it is tres Bon! 

Another raspberry number.. Carmel Clark asked for this dreamy chocolate. Milk chocolate with raspberry, hazelnut praline and white chocolate. 

Jane Miles suggested this.. Milk chocolate & Turkish delight with white chocolate swirls. Makes me honk of Narnia!

Emiley Harrison's chocolate idea was delicious! Honeycomb & orange.. The texture was great, lots of crunch! Thought this was quite autumnal so apt for the season.

We made many more flavours including milk chocolate with strawberry bon bons with pink sprinkles (dedicated to Breast Cancer), ginger & pecan... 

What would your dream chocolate be???
