Taste of Christmas at The Highland Chocolatier

Cold Makes Us Nostalgic and Nostalgia Makes Us Warm

Christmas and New Year for me has always been the priceless time when family and friends get together and bask in the glow of the season. How many priceless memories centre around this time of year for each of us–the atmosphere, the anticipation, and the joy. Since my family opened the business 12 years ago, Christmas has become the one week of the year when I close the chocolate kitchen, and that I get to be on holiday at the same time as my brother, Calum, who is my Senior Chocolatier.

For me it is also a particularly beautiful and jovial time in Scotland— especially with the colourful celebration of Hogmanay to brighten up the bleak winter weather. Above all, the season offers a poignant chance to laugh, reflect, and share from the heart—and in that spirit, I offer some Christmas selections, and my warmest wishes for a lovely holiday.

Make It a December to Remember

With such heartfelt nostalgia surrounding it, winter and the holiday season inspires the evocative limited edition Velvet Truffle—The Festive Spice. 

The Festive Spice Velvet Truffle is the chocolate equivalent of a Christmas Pudding. Whether in an exquisite selection box of enrobed Velvet Truffles and pralines, or in an ornate box of unenrobed cocoa-dusted Velvet Truffles, the Festive Spice makes the perfect petits fours for after Christmas dinner, adding an unforgettable sparkle to the taste of Christmas.

Kids’ Christmas Candies

Chocolate is arguably part of every child’s favourite list of Christmas treats, and ours too! If there is one way to say thank you to the little tyke in your life that they’ll really love, it’s got to be chocolate. At The Highland Chocolatier, we offer a range of children’s chocolates that will really impress and delight. Give them a little taste of luxury as a stocking filler, or as a way to say a special little thank you with something they’ll really love.

Our yummy Childrens’ milk chocolate buttons are lovingly made with little ones in mind. Small in size, they’re perfect for a little treat while watching that same movie or waiting for Santa to arrive, and are melt-in-the-mouth good. For the kids who prefer white chocolate ours is top quality with no additives and there’s milk or strawberry too. Why not try eating all three together and see what flavours they create together?

If you’re looking for something even more special and memorable, we also offer delightful shaped containers. Our Strawberry Chocolate Piggy Bank is full of our luxury, delicious chocolate buttons, and when it’s finished it can be used as a real piggy bank – two gifts in one! Specially for Christmas, why not try our Chocolate Button Snowman too? Or maybe they prefer dinosaurs to little piggies? The big bad wolf – er, Chocolate button dinosaur! – is here to huff puff and blow them away. Choose from the option of milk, white, or strawberry chocolate buttons to really give them something to love.

Spoil them with Luxury

Your co-workers have been working hard this year and you want to say thank you – but how? Your family love chocolate, but you want something different to give them at Christmas? We have just the thing – our luxury range of Chocolate dipped fruits.
