Guinness and Chocolate in a marshmallow – a brilliant mix from Karen Waller, chief chocolatier at Rococo Chocolates and her team for Father’s Day and to make his day even more special they have produced a new salty caramel cigar. Lucky Dad.
And the chocolate fairies at Rococo decided to pack them in a very special hamper together with a Rococo mug for Dad’s breakfast tea and we all know how good Dads are at helping with the washing up so we have included his very own tea-towel! Now there is no excuse. But as it is Fathers’ Day give him a hand.
The hamper retails at £40
