The leaves are turning beautiful reds and yellows and it is time to put your feet up and snuggle under a soft throw to enjoy the longer evenings. To make that enjoyment even sweeter Rococo Chocolates has just launched their Autumn collection. This season they have concentrated on evoking memories by using autumnal fruits, enhanced with a touch of spice. The flavour combinations are designed to give the warmth and comfort we all need as the temperature outside drops and the nights close in.
There are four delicious flavours to choose from:
Pumpkin Pie: Milk chocolate and pumpkin ganache with honey and a touch of warming nutmeg and cinnamon.
Autumn Berry Crumble: Bramley apple jelly layered with a dark autumn berry ganache, topped with a cinnamon crumble.
Toffee Apple: A chocolate version of the Autumn classic! Tart apple jelly and crispy salted toffee.
Smoked Chestnut: Milk chocolate ganache made with chestnut puree. Infused with smoky Lapsang Souchong tea.
Available now in store, £13.50 per 100g. Available online in a 4 piece box for £6.50 or as a 12 chocolate selection for £17.95 from Friday 23rd October.
It was a very proud moment for Chantal Coady OBE, owner and creative director of Rococo Chocolates, and Barry Johnson, principal chocolatier at Rococo Chocolate when they were presented with Gold medals for two of their delicious products from the International Chocolate Awards during The Chocolate Show.
International Chocolate Awards – Gold Best in the World
Dark Cardamom Bar
Mandarin and Tonka Caramel
And it did not stop there a silver medal was also awarded for the
Spice Island Bar
During the show there were other challenges and again Rococo proved a force to be reckoned with, Barry’s praline cigar won 2nd place in the:
Great British Spice Chocolate Challenge
2nd place – Hazelnut, orange and Lebkuchen spiced praline cigar.
Chantal and Barry would like to offer their congratulations to Zara Snell who, at only 19 years old, won the Spice Challenge a great achievement. Well Done! She is surely one to watch!
And not only is Rococo producing the best chocolate, they are also the fastest – proved so well by Sam Smallman, retail and events manager, in the truffle rolling competition which he won convincingly.
A great end to a very successful Chocolate Week
Chantal Coady OBE, founder, owner and creative director of Rococo Chocolates was inspired by Amanda Mackenzie’s (of www.project-everyone.org) call to action. The simple but mighty ambition of Project Everyone is to share their 17 global goals with seven billion people in seven days.
For the UN launch of Global Goals 2015 on Friday September 25th, Rococo Chocolates have paired their 17 artisan organic chocolate bars with the 17 Global Goals to help raise awareness for this fantastic worldwide campaign.
Chantal: “All of the 17 Global Goals are close to my heart. The big scary one is to end poverty by 2030 and to do this all the other goals will need to be achieved. If I had to pick three to highlight, it would be #5 Gender Equality, #4 Quality Education and #10 Reduced Inequalities.”
On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders, including the Pope, will meet in New York to commit to 17 Global Goals to achieve three extraordinary things in the next 15 years. To end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and fix climate change. The Global Goals for Sustainable Development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people.
