Celebrating World Chocolate Day!

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Chocolate, We Think The World of You!

While every day is Chocolate Day at Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier, the 7th of July marks the annual celebration of World Chocolate Day.  A day when we can all joyfully doff our caps to one of the most beloved foods on the planet. Of course there are countless ways to enjoy the day, but here are a few suggestions from Iain’s corner of the world.

Simply the Zest!

Coinciding with World Chocolate Day, Iain is offering a new Summer Selection Box. A tantalising medley of fruit and floral Velvet Truffles. A wonderful complement of flavours for the long, hot summer days.

Encircled in a white and gold box, these brightly coloured gourmet treats are certain to make your taste buds sparkle like sunshine!

Take A Dip

In this hot weather, let your palate do the travelling, with pineapples, clementines, lemons and cherries.

Iain’s selection of dipped fruit is the ultimate way to savour summer.  Fine fruit, delicately candied over days to retain their natural sweetness and juiciness, then hand-dipped and dressed in Iain’s gourmet chocolate.

Paint the Town Red…

With Iain’s luxury Red Cocoa!

100% cocoa powder, crafted through a careful process of fermentation, roasting and grinding.

Rich and robust, red cocoa adds an aromatic, bittersweet punch to both savoury and sweet recipes.  Wonderful for those on the lookout for more ways to integrate chocolate flavours into their lives–on World Chocolate Day and every day!

Happy World Chocolate Day from Highland Perthshire,

 

 

 

Come Dine With The Highland Chocolatier

Knowing how to make a lasting impression on your guests at a dinner party can make all the difference in sealing your title as the host(ess) with the most party prowess. You have selected the finest wines to compliment your dishes, picked up the most beautiful plates and linens for your table, and now there is just one last element that you need to consider: your party favours.

It is not always expected to think about little favours to have at your table before or after the main event, but it can leave a great impression of you as a host to leave a little extra. Weddings, on the other hand, are expected to have a few favours on the table for attending guests. Knowing which to buy can make all the difference to your luxurious evening.

Delicate Butterfly Boxes

Butterfly-Box

Party favours are known for being a simple, small treat that can be a great follow-up to any party, giving your guests something to either nibble on when the main courses are finished or for them to take away as an additional gift straight from your table to make your evening last even longer in their minds. What better way to make a splash than with the most beautiful little party favours of chocolate gifts?

At the Highland Chocolatier, we have some of the most beautifully designed butterfly chocolates on the market. Each box has been lovingly crafted with gold embellishments on crisp white card to create a stunning product on your table. The golden butterfly wings protrude from the box to invite your guests to peek inside and see what luxurious chocolates lay hidden within. What’s even better is that you can choose which chocolates will be inside your butterfly boxes with choices from our full chocolate selection, making your evening truly customisable.

These small boxes are perfectly suited for use on crisp white linen tablecloths at both dinner parties and weddings. Their clean colours and patterns mean less distractions on the table and the gold accents are delicate enough to suit any occasion. Find your ideal chocolates and make your guests’ day even better. Your evening just got a lot more appetising.

Post-Dinner Mint Treats

It is something of a tradition after a three-course dinner party to have a box of treats to pass around for those with a little bit more of a hole in their stomach to fill. Mints are often a favourite for this purpose – and chocolate mints even more so. Why settle for the average when you could make even this little step be more luxurious?

At the Highland Chocolatier, we have a box of 9 velvet-smooth truffles infused with garden mint to whet any appetite at the end of the month. The truffle is encased in our delicious 70% dark chocolate, crafted especially for the most appetising, velvet-smooth texture that is known internationally as one of the best truffles in the world. Choose the most delectable of chocolate mints and give your guests a taste of the extraordinary.

Award-Winning Excellence at Dinner

With all of the effort you have put into the rest of your evening’s meals and preparation, you and your guests deserve something extra special. Rather than settling for the usual treats that are often enjoyed after a dinner party, you may want to consider opting for something that has a little more of that special touch the rest of your evening has thoroughly embraced. Selection boxes can cater to a number of tastes and look great on a dinner table as a centrepiece for the conversations to fly over. The Highland Chocolatier is known for creating some of the most delicious chocolates imaginable, and your dinner guests will be thrilled by your choices.

The Just Truffles Box of 48 Chocolates is one of the finest chocolate selection boxes of chocolates that you could buy. Not only is it full of enough chocolates to satisfy hungry dinner guests, but it contains some of our award-winning velvet truffles. Winners of the gold award for unflavoured chocolate truffles at the International Chocolate Awards, the Highland Chocolatier are proud to present the best of our range of truffles in this box.

With flavours such as our lime and chilli, raspberry and black pepper, and rose truffles all available to taste by your guests, there is no better box to centre your conversation around. Taste the finest chocolates available on the market and make it a night they won’t forget.

Pass Around a Box of Chocolates

Looking for another box that you can freely pass around your dinner table? Florentines are yet another classic that are perfectly suited for being passed around between guests. Each individual disk of chocolate is more than enough to melt in the mouth and appeal to any number of flavour preferences with different chocolates and toppings available.

One of the best choices for an after-dinner snack would be our 14 Dark Peppermint Chocolate Florentines. Boxes of chocolates do not come much more appealing than this, with 14 perfectly formed discs of our delicious 70% dark chocolate embedded with tangy peppermint sugar crystals that are crunchy and slow melting. Each Florentine is handmade and decorated, sealed in a beautiful red and gold decorative box to show off your choice to your guests perfectly.

Choose the Best Dinner Party Favours

Your dinner party needs a little bit of something special to really cement your night as the best of your group. Choose one of our finest luxury chocolates or any of our range, from chocolate hampers to velvet truffles, for an evening your guests will not forget any time soon.
