Chocolate is a match made in heaven for a family night in, and at the Highland Chocolatier we have a full range of some of the most delicious and flavoursome luxury chocolate bars on the market.

If your family loves dark chocolate, look no further than our 70% dark Sao Tome chocolate bar. Our single-origin chocolate is full of flavour. Aromatic and floral, this dark chocolate whisks you away to islands full of summer sun and adventure. What is even better about buying this bar is that 10p of every bar is sent directly to Alzheimer Scotland, reaching out to research, treat and prevent Alzheimer disease across Scotland. You can feel warm inside from knowing you have done a great deed while enjoying your chocolate treats.

Looking for something more exciting and different? We also have a range of truly irresistible chocolate bars with flavours beyond your wildest imagination. Our salted toffee bar is made with our delicious caramel-noted milk chocolate, with chewy toffee pieces scattered on top. A few pinches of sea salt added on top really make the flavours burst in your mouth – you have to try it to understand it! For families who are a little on the adventurous and daring side, we also have a bar of our 70% dark chocolate with fiery Chinese root ginger embedded on top of it for a deliciously hot bite.

Extra Special Mother’s Day Chocolate Gifts in Decorative Tins

Monday, February 29th, 2016


There are many ways to show your mum that you appreciate her. Mother’s Day is perhaps one of the best chances that you have to really make a big song and dance about your mum and everything she has done for you over the years. From the most delicious home-cooked meals, to the times where she bandaged your knee when you fell, to helping you when times were tough. It is the perfect day to give a little something back to her – and with our selection of tins of chocolates made especially for the special people in your life, what better way is there to say thank you than with chocolate Mother’s Day gifts?

Hot Chocolate to Warm Her Heart


Everybody loves to sit down with a mug of their favourite warm drink. There is almost nothing better than sitting down together, watching a movie, sipping at your drink and laughing about memories you have had together. Why not add a touch of luxury to your evening’s relaxation with a beautifully decorated tin of dark hot chocolate flakes from the Highland Chocolatier?

Our finest dark Belgian chocolate is delicately flaked to be used as a topping for any desserts, melting into different sauces, and especially for making the most delicious mugs of hot chocolate. For the best flavour, add to warmed milk for the smoothest texture. A fan of a creamier, thicker hot chocolate? Why not add in a second bag of hot chocolate flakes to fill up your mug? Add in a spoonful or two of our white hot chocolate flakes and make your taste experience smoother, sweeter, and creamier. Your mum will look forward to some teatime talk almost as much as you do!

A Taste of the Classics

When we think of anything dipped in chocolate, there are a few old favourites that tend to come to mind very quickly. At the Highland Chocolatier, we always love to embrace the old and twist it with the new, lavishing sweet treats in our delicious milk and dark chocolate to appeal to the most varying of tastes. Your mother’s day chocolate gifts couldn’t be easier to find with our decorative tins full of some of the most classic chocolate combinations possible.

A decorative tin of Turkish delight is one of the most classic of combinations embraced by chocolatiers over the years. A favourite for many of our customers, your mum will delight in the soft, delicious texture of our rose and lemon scented Turkish Delight enrobed in milk or single origin 70% dark chocolate, smooth and creamy and a perfect blend of textures. Luxury does not come much finer than these delicious bite-size nibbles.

Looking for a treat to suit an even sweeter tooth? We understand perfectly. Another favourite of our customers is our delicious black and gold decorative tins of luxury fudge. They are a more traditional favourite, with many growing up adoring the delicious taste of warm vanilla fudge. Each piece is smooth and creamy, hand dipped in the smoothest luxury milk chocolate. The classics have never tasted so good. Go on, treat your mum this Mother’s Day.

Alternative Flavour Combinations


Growing up, we all develop different preferences for flavours. Did you know that some of our favourite treats can even give us certain health benefits? Indeed, it is known that ginger can have additional health benefits for the body, including immunity to muscle pain and effective anti-diabetic properties. At the Highland Chocolatier we have taken our finest single origin 70% dark chocolate and coated pieces of crystallised ginger, stored in another of our beautiful black and gold decorative tins, to create one of our best – and most fiery – flavour combinations for those who cannot get enough of the taste of ginger. If your mum loves a warm treat, this could be the one for her.

Is your mum a coffee addict? No need to fear – we have a delicious alternative to that coffee gift card you were considering. Our decorative tin of dark chocolate coffee beans offers the gift of a delicious bundle of some of the finest espresso coffee beans available, wrapped delicately in our 70% dark chocolate. The bitter flavours of coffee and dark chocolate melt together with a hint of sweetness that is as moreish as it suggests. For a mocha flavour without the hassle, this mother’s day chocolate gift is ideal.

Chocolate Covered Fruit


It is not only tins of other sweets and coffee that we have to offer your mum for Mother’s Day. In fact, one of our most loved treats comes in our beautiful decorative tin of strawberries and raspberries. For the mum who is a fan of white chocolate, this is the perfect gift. With dried natural strawberries and raspberries enrobed in the smoothest, creamiest white chocolate, there is the most delicate mix of sweet and bitter with an added crunch of texture that makes this tin beautifully appetising.

If you are looking for more additions to your chocolate covered fruit collection for your mum, we also offer a delicious range that you can choose to add to your order. From whole clementines to cherries, there is a chocolate dipped fruit to suit everyone.

Give Your Mum the Best Mother’s Day Chocolate Gifts


Your mum is important to you, and we want to help you say thank you in the best ways possible. If a decorative tin is not enough, why not try our beautiful luxury chocolate hampers? Filled to the brim with our finest chocolates and some added treats, you cannot go wrong. Make your mum’s day the best ever this March with the Highland Chocolatier deluxe chocolates.

Spring Into Sweet Chocolate Covered Fruits

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016


Although the weather may appear to say differently here in Perthshire, we are now starting to see the seasons change from Winter to Spring. With this new season comes warmth, new life, and plenty of new flavours to delight your senses with. At the Highland Chocolatier we are especially excited for the new fruits that begin to come into season, giving more opportunities for us to let our customers experience new fruit and chocolate combinations. There is no time quite like Spring for leaping in and tasting the difference our sweet chocolate covered fruits can make.

Sweet and Sour Delights


Not everybody likes to eat fruits that are commonly ‘sweet’ and ‘sugary’. Some may prefer to go for the sour sweets in an assorted packet, and we understand those tastes perfectly. If you are looking for a gift that drips with that ‘Spring’ feeling, this may be the option for you. The most perfectly Spring-looking chocolate covered fruits we have are our finest Slices of Lemon Dipped in White Chocolate. We know what you are thinking – can you even eat slices of lemon? Yes!

Our chocolate covered fruits are all candied to perfection, creating a deliciously sweet taste and texture that enables you to be able to eat even slices of lemon. Lemon is a naturally juicy and delicious fruit. Candying slices of lemon brings out their juicy, bitter flavour with an accompaniment of sweetness we can’t get enough of. Delicately dipped in our smooth and creamy white chocolate, you experience sweet and bitter juices mixed with delicate creamy chocolate for a truly special taste experience.

If you would prefer something a little sweeter with a familiar yet less pronounced tanginess, why not try our Orange Sunrise Slices? Slightly sweeter than lemon and candied in the same week-long process to create the most delectable treat, they are hand dipped and dressed in our Sao Tome 70% dark chocolate. Presented in a red and gold embossed box with 4 – 5 full slices, there is no reason not to get your Spring off to the best start with this gift.

Spring Fruits Fit for Royalty


Did you know that we have supplied our chocolates for events at Holyrood Palace? Indeed, the Highland Chocolatier have the finest chocolates to offer in Scotland and our chocolates are appreciated at all events they attend. Our chocolate dipped fruits are not only perfect for Spring, but they are ideal for royalty.

If you have not yet tried our Chocolate Dipped Cherries, know that they are the Queen’s favourites. Gently candied for over a week to retain their natural juices and served complete with their natural stalks, each cherry is hand dipped in our Sao Tome 70% dark chocolate for the most delicious of flavour combinations. Cherries and chocolate go together like peaches and cream, so do not miss out on our selection that is truly irresistible – even to royalty.

Whole Juicy Fruits


It is not only slices of fruits that offer at the Highland Chocolatier. We embrace the Spring spirit and offer whole candied fruits such as our chocolate dipped cherries. In fact, one of our favourite products is our box of 4 Whole Candied Clementines. Candied to create the sweetest layer of sugar from our delicious syrup to allow the whole fruit’s juices to be contained, each bite is sweeter and juicier than the next.

Swirled with a delicate pattern of our single origin 70% dark chocolate and dipped by hand, these individual candied fruits are a real treat for any chocolate connoisseur. If you are looking for a gift idea, all of our fruits – including a whole clementine – are available in our specially selected St Clements fruit selection, decorated especially for Mother’s Day gifts.

Mother’s Day Chocolate Gifts


Spring is also a time for giving gifts and showing appreciation. With both Easter and Mother’s Day around the corner, there is no better time to make sure you are prepared with the most delectable chocolate thank you gifts. Chocolate dipped fruits could be just what your friends and family are looking for.

Our candied lemon dipped in white chocolate is wrapped up in a special white box, topped off with a seasonal ribbon, to make an ideal gift of Mother’s Day chocolates for your mum. We have other Mother’s Day chocolates that would make the ideal gift, with none more luxurious than our selection of decadent chocolate hampers.

Chocolate hampers make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day as they bring together some of our best loved products wrapped up in a luxurious black wicker hamper. The hamper we recommend for Mother’s Day is our Gourmet Chocolate Hamper. With a selection box of 9 chocolates, a decorative tin of hot chocolate flakes, luxury chocolate dipped fudge and a special Highland Chocolatier mug to enjoy her new hot chocolate, what better way is there to tell your mum that she is loved and appreciated than with the finest selections of chocolates we offer?

Choose The Best Chocolates and Fruits

At the Highland Chocolatier, we use only the finest ingredients in all of our products we hand craft. With expertly sourced ingredients, we offer a truly luxurious gourmet experience in each chocolate. If you are looking for treats to help you get into the Spring spirit, our chocolate dipped fruits have a lot to offer all taste preferences. Go on – treat yourself or a friend this Spring.

With our finest gourmet chocolate contained in every one, you’ll be guaranteed a quality box of chocolates that will win over even the fussiest of guests and bring some good old festive cheer to your party.

Classic Christmas Box of Florentines

ROUNDREDMIXEDFL14_SFlorentines are arguably one of the most popular treats available over Christmas, and with good reason. Made with delicious chocolate and given so many flavours, there’s a lot to choose from for your perfect Florentine.

A Christmas Taste Adventure

The Velevet Truffle - Festive SpiceThere are flavours that all of us can associate with the Holiday season and winter. Around the dinner table, thousands of us tuck in to a delicious slice of Christmas pudding. Even talking about it brings back memories of the spices used so often in their creation, the smell of them warming up the kitchen, and making even the fullest of bellies rumble.

We have taken those warm memories and flavours as inspiration and created something luxuriously different for this Christmas season. The Highland Chocolatier’s dark chocolate truffle is winner of the Gold Award at the World Finals of International Chocolate Awards 2015 for unflavoured dark chocolate truffle. Taking our professional techniques, we created our sister truffle that has Christmas at its heart; the Velvet Truffle Festive Spice. A box containing more festive spirit than Santa’s sleigh, this tray of truffles is made with fresh Scottish cream and infused with the tempting flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg, orange and allspice that subtly replicates the taste of Christmas pudding. Dusted in red cocoa powder to make it even more festive, you won’t want to pass up this option to wow your guests (or keep them all as an extra special treat for yourself when the party’s all over!).
