The Rococo Easter Chick Has Hatched Just in Time for Easter

The very talented chocolatier team at Rococo, headed by Karen Waller, have come up with some cracking ideas for Easter Eggs this year… A limited edition of bespoke eggs:  this one is named ‘Don’t put all your eggs in one Basket’, it’s part of a range including ‘Chicken in a Basket” and ‘Hippie Chick’. There will be only 5 of each design made, so expect a bit of “Smash & Grab” raid when they arrive in store.

The egg itself, made from 39% organic milk chocolate, with smaller eggs of delicious caramelised white chocolate, and the little chick is marzipan.

Wonder what the other eggs will look like, eggciting…Watch this space!

The bespoke eggs retail at £40.00 and can be bought at the 4 Rococo London shops: Motcomb Street, Kings Road, Moxon Street and Earlham Street. A different egg for each shop.

Hurry, they won’t sit around for long.

Happy Easter from Rococo Chocolates.

Putting Spring in your Step

Blossom Egg 008Easter is early this year and after a mild winter so is Spring. This has inspired the decoration on Rococo’s latest artistically hand painted egg: Blossom, a delightfully sunny looking egg with a cherry blossom branch across the front.

BLOSSOM EGG weighs a full 1lb and is made with Rococo’s 65% cocoa dark chocolate house blend. The blend contains cocoa from Tanzania, Peru and the Dominican Republic, as well as cocoa from Rococo’s own farm in Grenada.  The dark chocolate shell is topped with a thin white chocolate layer, which is hand painted with beautiful cherry blossom design.  It contains a selection of chocolates, including traditional floral fondant creams, fresh cream truffles and delicate ganaches handmade in London, as well as a selection of dark and milk chocolate carres.

This beautiful egg retails at £42.50, and available in all the Rococo stores only.

Lollies Easter 2016 005

Chantal Coady OBE, founder & Creative Director of Rococo Chocolate announces the launch of the Roald Dahl Collection.

Roly 045   Crocodile egg 006Coady is delighted to be working with the Dahl family on some very exciting new projects; the first of which are being launched this Easter. After “almost 50 years in gestation” The Crocodile Egg and the Roly-Poly Egg are hatching. Coady explains “Roald Dahl has always been a great inspiration to me, my dad brought the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory back from New York in the ‘60s when it was first published, and it’s been a formative influence on my life in chocolate ever since. This is an amazing project for Rococo to be working on and we are so pleased to have the exclusive license to produce chocolates for the Enormous Crocodile and so many of Dahl’s children’s titles. Later in the year we will produce the first Dahl chocolate bar library, featuring The BFG, The Twits, The Witches and James and the Giant Peach”

 

THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE EGG

We promise that no children were gobbled in the making of this egg, much to the greedy croc’s chagrin…

Open up the beautiful green foiled crocodile pattern milk chocolate shell and you will find six salt water baby green crocodiles* trying to escape/hatch. The 140g egg retails at £14.50 or you can buy two for £25.00

 

THE ROLY–POLY BIRD CHOCOLATE EGG

While trying to find a child to eat, the Enormous Crocodile has a go at the Roly-Poly bird. Happily she manages to escape with her life, but loses her tail feathers. She loves berries to eat, but can’t quite decide if she prefers strawberries or raspberries. The Roald Dahl ‘Roly-Poly Bird Egg’ from Rococo Chocolates gives you the best of both worlds – the choice of strawberries with milk chocolate in one half of the egg and raspberries with white chocolate and fizzing popping candy in the other. The white half of the shell is covered with the pink foil and the milk half with blue. The 150g egg is filled with delicious multi-coloured foiled milk chocolate eggs – and you don’t even have to go hunting for them! The ‘Roly-Poly Bird Egg’ retails at £14.50 or you can get two for £25.00.

Lovely presents to surprise and delight literary kids and their parents.

Less is more…

Happy Easter!

*The baby crocs are milk chocolate and have a pinch of Anglesey sea salt!!

Glorious Gifts at a Press of a Button – Rococo and Rockflower Collaboration

RockflowerFlowers and chocolate is a classic combination. Ideal for gifts for so many occasions, so it was an obvious to Chantal Coady OBE, owner and founder of Rococo Chocolates, and Andrew McAlpine, owner and founder of Rockflower, to collaborate by combining their two products and make them available to shoppers at TFL stations.

In a recent Q & A session Chantal said: Chocolate and flowers are an obvious combination, although they have rather different requirements in terms of selling them: flowers need lots of water, chocolate needs climate control and a dry environment, so there are also plenty of challenges trying to sell them together. Andrew has a brilliant mind and way of innovating so that these obstacles are no longer problems, I love the sense of innovation that Rockflower delivers, and the fact that you can buy from them instantly, 24 hours a day, whenever you have a whim to get beautiful flowers or chocolates in fact.

And Andrew commented: 2015 will see Rockflower move into three, if not four, other TFL stations in and around London and with that I am very thrilled to know that we are moving into these new locations with Chantal and Rococo Chocolates, which is such a fine complement because the proof of the matter is that people already like this combination in Blackfriars and I think that when we’re in other high profile areas, we’re going to find that this works even better together.

No doubt we will be seeing more of this natural combination in weeks and month to come. They are perfect together for Valentines, for Mother’s Day and for Easter. In fact it is hard to find an occasion when they are not!
