Chococo was set up by husband & wife team Andy & Claire Burnet in late 2002 and they have established themselves as one of the UK's leading contemporary chocolate makers with a passion for freshness, purity and provenance.
Provenance We only work with origin chocolate made with the finest cocoa beans, we use local Dorset produce, including the fresh cream for our ganaches, as much as possible and where we can't go local, we try to source ethically produced ingredients.
Freshness our fresh Dorset cream truffles & chocolates are best eaten as soon as possible as they are a fresh product, but they will keep for up to 2 weeks - if you can manage to hold back for that long.
Purity we believe quite simply that pure food tastes better - so we don't put any preservatives into our chocolates, so that you can discover the joy of tasting purity.
How do we make our chocolates?
The artisan way, by hand, all our truffles are piped, dipped in chocolate & then rolled in their appropriate finish by hand.
Our moulded chocolates are moulded & filled by hand, our enrobed chocolates are all hand-dipped, and all decorative finishes are added by hand. We even hand-dip our dried fruits.are we mad or what!
We have looked after many brides both locally & nationally and would love to create something special for you to provide the perfect personal finishing touch to a very special day.
The Gift boxes We can offer a range of bridal packaging options from traditional favour boxes to more contemporary boxes, organza bags or clear bags tied with ribbon. Our boxes and bags are available in a wide variety of colours (with white, silver & gold being most popular)
Ribbons & chocolates to match your colour scheme
We can finish with satin or organza ribbons (all we need is a fabric swatch to match to) to fit in with your colour scheme of the day. We can also wrap certain truffles in coloured foil to enhance a desired colour scheme. We have a wide range of foil colours but it does take time to wrap so there is a small extra cost for each foil-wrapped chocolate of 10p each.
The chocolates Choose any of the handmade chocolates from our range that you would like to put inside your gifts. Champagne, raspberry or vanilla fresh cream truffles and praline-filled milk or dark chocolate hearts decorated with edible silver leaf are the most popular wedding choices.
Finally, we can personalise the label on the outside or inside of your gift to reflect your choice of chocolates, the date of your wedding or a message from you.
