Chilli Chocolate Gift Hamper
The ultimate chilli-lovers chocolate hit, this is a selection of our best hand made chilli chocolates. Infused with locally grown chillies these chocolates are sure to warm you from the inside, combining the luxurious smoothness of our signature Belgium chocolates with a fire-y finish.
The chillies used to flavour the bars are grown by Charlye and Cecile Woolman in their market garden in Dorridge, a local village (less than 10 miles from our chocolatierie). They just happen to have a large greenhouse in their garden (it used to be used for chrysanthemums and now it's put to great use growing chillies for our chocolate bars). Cecile and Charlye start the plants off on a windowsill in the house very early in the year and move them out into an unheated greenhouse when the weather warms. The bright red chillies start to ripen in late July and there is a wonderful glut for the rest of the growing season.
The chillies are delivered fresh to us in Wootton Wawen, where we dry them to preserve their flavour. Cocoa butter infused with the dried chillies to mixed with our beautifully smooth signature dark or milk chocolate to give it's fire-y kick. Of course, each batch is taste tested for heat. Carolina Reaper chillis are the hottest British grown chilli variety we can find and certainly take no prisoners!
Each gift set contains one jar of homemade chilli and dark chocolate jam (127g), one bag of 6 hand rolled, special edition, Carolina Chilli Chocolate truffles (3 white and 3 milk chocolate per bag), one 40g Kicking mule chocolate bar (dark chocolate infused with the relatively mild Cayenne chilli), one 40g Dragon's Breathe chocolate bar (dark chocolate infused with Carolina Reaper chillies), and one Chocolate Roulette (16 dark chocolate thins, one of which is infused with Carolina Reaper chilli, but the question is who will get the 'hot' one??!)
Allergens: all the chocolates contain SOY lecithin, a natural emulsifier which gives the chocolate its smooth taste and texture.
The truffles are made with real, locally sourced, fresh dairy cream and butter but the other chocolates (and the jam) are made with no dairy containing ingredients.
All of our chocolates are made in an area where nuts and other allergens are used and hence there is a minor risk of trace contamination. Please contact us for further information if you suffer from a severe allergy.
