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. The shop is based at  5 Mount Pleasant just off the top of the High Street. As a small business your custom really matters to us and we really appreciate you choosing our chocolates.

Please note our new opening times at the bottom of the page.

 Chocolate workshops are back. We are also happy to take bookings for small, private parties. 

The next workshop is Thursday 30th September at 2pm.

ChristmasHandmade chocolates time time to create and we want to ensure that we can make lots of chocolate goodies for both our Online customers and for the Skipton shop in time for Christmas. Last year, Covid made it difficult to plan so this year we are going to concentrate on our more popular lines from now until December. A few changes will take place on the website over the next few weeks and we will be encouraging customers to pre order.

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

We are starting to make a few changes to this category so that it is more manageable for our chocolate making activities.  In the run up to Easter we will be reducing our range or Free From chocolates. We are only a small business and as our Free From range are made to order it’s hard to manage at very busy times. Our vegan chocolates are regrettably unavailable until after Easter . 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

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.
