Welcome to Chocolates and Truffles of Skipton

 We create delicious handmade chocolates.

Chocolates and Truffles of Skipton is an independent chocolatier that creates delicious handmade chocolates and truffles. We make our products from Rain Forest Alliance Certified chocolate and we also use a range of single origin chocolate. All the chocolates and truffles are made from start to finish by hand using our own recipes to deliver chocolate with an aroma and taste to wow the senses.

Unfortunately the business is now closed to new orders. I’m retiring and decided the end of March was the last date for orders. I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with  lovely, dedicated staff;  Emma, Ellie, Sian who have helped make the business a success. Of course a business isn’t a business without customers and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support both local and online customers.

Sustainability

Did you know all our chocolate is rain forest alliance certified. See more details further down this page. The latest news is that we have moved to using clear compostable bags to display our chocolates. Our boxes and inserts are recyclable and we would encourage you to bring back our chocolate boxes and tins to refill or if you prefer why not use your own? We have also made a positive move with our energy suppliers and now use renewable energy.

 

 

 

Enjoy!

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is quite simple – Handmade chocolate at a price that is fair for both cocoa farmers and customers.

 

Our Ethics

Chocolates and Truffles have recently made the decision to make all our chocolates from rainforest alliance cocoa. It takes a great deal of time to grow and harvest cocoa beans and sustainable farming is the only solution if we want to continue enjoying this amazing chocolate product. We also use single origin chocolate using selected beans from different areas of the world with the chocolate originating from sustainable, supported farms. See more on our sustainability policy with packaging and energy above.

Its not just about suppliers, it’s also about being aligned with what our customers really want and offering fair prices so that we can continue to support each other. We enjoy creating delicious chocolates for our customers and hope we always go that extra mile in ensuring we give customers what they would like.

 

Vegan and Free From

All the chocolates and truffles are suitable for vegetarians and are also gluten free. In addition a number of our dark chocolate products are suitable for vegans but are not suitable for those with severe dairy allergies.

Allergens

Every care is taken in making these chocolates using dedicated equipment but if you have an allergy that may result in an anaphylactic reaction please be aware that there is always a small risk of cross contamination from allergens in such a small work space. Please be aware nuts are stored and handled on site.

Corporate/Trade/Events

We are also happy to sell to cafes and restaurants.Weddings and Events are also a pleasure to create chocolates for; we will make bespoke chocolates if you want something you don’t see in the shop.
