Whats new?

Making Easter Eggs was fun but now its time to turn to summer and we are now busy developing Chocolates and Truffles for the season ahead. If you would like to see a particular  favourite chocolate or flavour please let us know. Summer is also a time for bumper crops of fruit and what better than plump,fruity strawnbwerries dipped in chocolate. Look out for our dipped strawberries later in the month! Chocolate Bars and Shards are currently really popular and  a few more will be added to the shop page shortly.  The photograph below features cappuccino chocolate with roasted cocoa nibs and a single origin 45% c/s Columbian milk chocolate bar also with nibs. Smooth creamy milk chocolate and nibs gives a really intense cocoa hit. Perfect for serious chocolate lovers!

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is quite simple – handmade chocolate at a price that is fair for everyone from cocoa farm to home.

At Chocolates and Truffles of Skipton we create delicious handmade chocolates that use the finest ingredients.

Our Ethics

We have recently moved over to making our chocolates from rainforest alliance certifed farm cocoa beans. 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. Its always interesting to taste chocolate from diverse plantations where  cocoa may come from different beans and different growing conditions and we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our shelves.

Free From

We try to be as inclusive as possible and we have increased our product range of handmade free from and diabetic chocolates. We now make a new range of dairy free products that are also gluten free and suitable for vegans with rice milk replacing dairy. The rice milk chocolate is also free from soya.  Our handmade diabetic chocolates are proving very popular with customers and this too is an area for growth. 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 very 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

In relation to the online shop we have now added a corporate gift section. Please contact us for more informaton. 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.
