Top 5 Gourmet Chocolates – Voted For By Our Team
Here at Friars we are quite the chocolate enthusiasts. Our team members are actively encouraged to regularly eat our chocolates, as it is a great means of quality control (this is not a joke!). We put it to our amazing team to vote on their top 5 favorite chocolates.
It was a little surprise that a white chocolate sneaked into the top 5 however, if you were to taste it then you would understand. White chocolate, fresh cream, strawberry and a crunchy meringue topping; this chocolate is a delight and a fabulous take on the traditional English dessert.
Velvety dark chocolate, made with 65% cocoa, is masterfully combined with a mint fondant center. Each chocolate is mixed, dipped and finished by hand meaning each one has its own unique charm.
One of the more recent additions to our selection but already a firm favorite. To quote a team member ‘chocolate, shortbread and gooey caramel….what is not to love?!’
With 3 layers this really is a treat for the taste buds.
Layer 1: Runny honey.
Layer 2: Caramelized nut brittle.
Layer 3: Milk chocolate praline.
On there own these would be good but together…wow!
Not really that much of a surprise (to us) but here is the winner. A thing of real beauty; a whole cherry, stone included, is soaked in Kirsch liqueur and then dipped in beautiful dark chocolate creating an unusual and most delicious chocolate.
