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

Chocolates and Truffles have recently made the decision to make all 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.

Free From

We now make our own handmade free from and diabetic chocolates. The new range of dairy free products 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. All the Free From Chocolates and Truffles can be made bespoke, feel free to call and discuss this further.

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 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.
