With Christmas just around the corner, our chocolatiers have been working diligently over the past few months to create limited edition chocolate truffles that will be sure to delight friends and family. Selecting gifts at Christmas time is not usually an easy task and the team here at the London chocolate co. always do our best to create some special Christmas gifts that are unique and also exclusive which is why we produce them in Limited quantity so the gift is something really special to the recipient.


Firstly, we’d like to introduce these delightful Salted Caramel truffles.
These truffles have been made with our all new signature caramel sprinkled with a pinch of Dorset sea salt flakes infused with lemon and thyme, encased in a dark chocolate shell. A very moreish treat.

Easter 2019 Chocolate Gifts March 02 2019

Its time for a cracking Easter!


Our chocolatiers have created stunning Easter chocolates inspired by our best-selling Gin and Prosecco Truffles – both as boxed chocolate gifts and luxury chocolate eggs.


Firstly, we’d like to introduce something for the Gin lovers out there…


Our Limited-Edition Luxury Gin & Tonic Chocolate Easter Egg. These eggs are handmade in our London kitchen by melting some of the finest Belgian milk chocolate and pouring it into our Easter Egg moulds to create a thick chocolate egg shell. Next, we make a small batch of our best-selling gin and tonic truffles and place them inside the egg before sealing the egg shell with more chocolate. Finally, each egg is beautifully decorated with chocolate spinning and edible embellishments before being carefully wrapped. The egg is perfect for families – it has a thick and creamy milk chocolate shell and is filled with gin and tonic truffles which the adults will adore.

Continuing with the Gin theme, we’ve brought back our miniature gin Easter eggs gift box which sold out very quickly last year. These luxury mini chocolate eggs are made by hand with a Belgian dark chocolate shell, filled with a white chocolate ganache that has been blended with London Gin. Each miniature Easter egg is carefully decorated by hand with white chocolate piping and sugared embellishments for added decorative detail. These make a great gift for a gin enthusiast.


Limited Edition of 250 gift boxes available to buy online here:


To compliment our Luxury Gin Egg we’ve made a Luxury Prosecco Easter Egg. This egg is also ideal for families as it’s made with a Belgian milk chocolate shell and is filled with our signature prosecco truffles.

Our Snowball Truffles celebrate the iconic Christmas cocktail made with Advocaat liqueur. We started with a smooth white chocolate ganache then blended in Advocaat liqueur and a splash of cognac, finally adding in notes of lemon and lime and finished the truffles with a dusting of icing sugar to give them a truly Christmassy look. Limited Edition of 250 Boxes for a unique gift this season.

Our mulled wine truffles have been created by starting with a classic milk chocolate ganache and blending in port, warming spices including clove and cinnamon with a hint of orange to give this truffle a signature Christmas feel. This chocolate truffle has a unique finishing made from cocoa powder and the 'superfood' - spirulina! Limited Edition of 250 Boxes.

Vegan Chocolates October 19 2017

With an increasing number of people choosing to adopt a Vegan diet, we took the bold step to begin developing chocolates and omitting the typical dairy ingredients. Making a non-dairy chocolate truffle may sound fairly easy but the starting point of many good truffles is chocolate, cream and sometimes butter. One of the team here at The London Chocolate Co is very much an advocate of healthy eating and fitness, he suggested that we try to include coconut oil into our non-dairy truffle recipe, so we started to experiment replacing the cream in our chocolate ganache with cold pressed coconut oil. After a few weeks we were happy with the basic non-dairy chocolate ganache so we moved onto the next challenge of choosing some flavours.

The first obvious choice was coconut, the pairing of coconut and chocolate has been around since at least the 1950’s, the coconut gives a fresh, sweet, aromatic and nutty flavour to the chocolate and so to our simple non-dairy dark chocolate ganache with coconut oil we added desiccated coconut, creating a truffle that not only tastes delicious but looks pretty great too.

For the second flavour we decided to go with the classic combination of chocolate and orange, creating a rich dark chocolate truffle with fruity notes of essential orange oil. The truffles are decorated with natural freeze dried orange and mango powder.

 

The third truffle to join our vegan chocolate selection is a dark chocolate truffle blended with London Gin; we decided to go with gin due to the popularity of our gin and tonic truffle and our raspberry gin truffle and of course at the request of our delightful customers!

As we continue to innovate in our development kitchen, we’re currently working on a dark chocolate and coffee truffle which should be available in the next few weeks. As you can imagine the scent in our kitchen is amazing these days - there's nothing quite like the aroma of dark chocolate and fresh espresso.

Single Origin Dark Chocolate Truffles May 17 2017

In principle a dark chocolate truffle sounds pretty simple to make and there are a wide variety available in the marketplace today, usually produced by just making a dark chocolate ganache (chocolate and cream) and piping it into a chocolate shell. When we decided to take on the challenge of creating a dark chocolate truffle we knew in true London Chocolate style it would have to be something extraordinary…

single origin dark chocolate truffles

Our expert chocolatiers started with a premium quality 67% single origin Madagascar dark chocolate, specially selected for its taste and rich aroma before adding cream and roasted cacao nibs to create a ganache with a distinct chocolaty flavour. The truffles are beautifully finished with 60% dark chocolate flakes to give them a unique texture and an intense chocolate taste.

The truffles are presented in our signature gift box and available to purchase online
