Make fresh chocolates at home!

Make fresh chocolates at home! - Russell and Atwell

It's completely bonkers to be a chocolate company with no chocolate to sell over Easter ...so we thought we would share with you a simple recipe to make your own fresh chocolates at home.

  

 

To make 200g of Centres

 

100g

Chocolate (pick your favourite - if you like it milky, choose a milk chocolate base, if you prefer dark chocolate, go for it!)

20g

Butter

60g

Fresh Double Cream

20g

Honey

Pinch

Sea Salt (Finely Ground)

 

For Coating the centres

 

100g

Chocolate to dip the centres into

20g

Cocoa Powder for Dusting

 

Make in 5 Easy Steps

 

STEPS

 

1

MELT

Melt the butter and the chocolate

2

MIX

Mix all centre ingredients together

3

CHILL

Pour into a shallow dish and chill in the fridge for an hour

4

SHAPE

Shape into 10g rocks (this is the fun/messy part!)

5

DIP & DUST

Melt the chocolate for the coating and dip the rocks in the melted chocolate and place on a baking sheet then lightly dust with cocoa powder.  Leave to set and scoff! 

(Keep any remaining in the fridge and eat within a few days)

 

Steve made a total mess of Giles' kitchen making these earlier this week, but the results are still being enjoyed by us all!

We'll be releasing a short film on social media - if you have a go at making these at home, do tag us on social media with a picture of the results.

In the meantime, wishing everyone a very Happy and Healthy Easter.

Steve & Giles

 

P.S. While we've got  got over 10,000 chocolate packs out to customers over the past few weeks, we've still got a fair few to go in the coming weeks - we're sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience, but we will not compromise on quality and our 3-day process to make each fresh batch totally delicious for you.

For anyone who hasn't had theirs delivered, we are making, packing and sending most days, please check your junk email for an update on your order timing - sent a few weeks ago - we are still on-track for this timing and plan to send a further update later next week.

Just received my chocolates today. I chose the dark selection and can honestly say that, not only were they worth the wait, but they are the best chocolates I have ever tasted (and I have expensive taste!). I will be reluctantly sharing them with friends and family so can’t wait to be able to get another order in soon. Yum!!!

Absolutely delish,the salted caramel are yummy,I’m not a dark chocolate fan but it goes amazing with the salted caramel filling,can’t wait until I can put another order in

Anthony

At this price point they need more good chocolate on the outside.
The fillings are good if a little too sweet to taste.
The outer shell is almost non existent so we are really missing out on the texture of a “normal” chocolate enrobed centre.
This is a good product however and with a few tweaks could be right up there with the big boys like Godiva or Leonidas.

They say the best things come to those who wait and these chocolates are no exception… Incredible stuff. Can’t wait for you to have more capacity to order more regularly. Keep up the great work guys 👏

Sandra Chambers

It is absolutely unbelievable. I loved it! Delicious!

Mark

Good but nothing special. Not worth waiting months for a packet.

Bindy Dabhi

Just tried the Salted Caramel, incredible and not too sweet. I can see why the Dragons took you guys on.
