Which is why we’ve created a range of fresh and frisky recipes with warmer weather in mind. AND WHAT better way to celebrate summer than with the gorgeous union of zingy fruit and smooth chocolate?

brace your taste buds, because something very special happens when real fruit meets gorgeous chocolate.

Enjoy your summer lightly chilled! Our exclusive summer range is full of summery flavours specially designed for warmer weather including tangy, real fruit truffles and light recipes best tasted lightly chilled – perfect for summer parties, sunny days and balmy evenings!

The story of our giant

CHOCOLATE SLABS When smooth, molten chocolate is poured out onto a cool, marble chocolatier’s table it naturally sets into a wonderfully fluid shape. And that is the inspiration behind our gorgeously thick half-kilo slabs. But when we came to make the very first samples, they looked way too thick and far too extravagant. “Perfect”, we said, as we watched them set. These thick, chunky hunks of chocolatier art are now icons of the Hotel Chocolat range with their gorgeously tactile curves.

All 500g slabs – £11.50 each All alcohol-free

CaramellowTM Caramel chocolate swirled into premium milk chocolate and topped with caramel chocolate drops, crunchy cinder toffee pieces and florentine squares.

The Essential Guide to Chocolate Dipping

The ins and outs of DIPPING ETIQUETTE can be a tricky business, which is why we enclose a copy of our Survival Guide with each Dipping Adventure – so you’ll not only enjoy your chocolate dipping to the full, you’ll also neatly avoid any social embarrassment. Do dip adventurous things… But don’t ever try to dip a kipper Do dip enthusiastically… But don’t ever double-dip Do scoop up as much chocolate as possible… But don’t dribble And do remember to secure your morsels firmly and don’t lose anything in the chocolate pot – etiquette demands that you kiss the person next to you for any lost dipping morsels. Then again, that might be what you have in mind anyway…

The Cocoa Lodges at Rabot Estate RABOT ESTATE nestles on the volcanic slopes of Soufrière in amongst 140 acres of cocoa trees. In front, the twin peaks of the Pitons rise dramatically out of the sea. Behind, lush rainforest, with the peaks of Mount Gimie and plunging fertile valleys, stretches away into the distance.

It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic environment for our fine flavour cocoa... And it’s also a paradise for people too, where life slows to the rhythm of sun ripening cocoa pods. Now you can experience the beauty of this tropical getaway for yourself in one of six Cocoa Lodges on the Rabot Estate, set amongst the cocoa trees. You’ll be able to explore the plantation and its history-soaked surroundings, cool off in the plunge pool and

take in the stunning views dominated by the Piton peaks. The Cocoa Lodges themselves are a blend of the traditionally St Lucian with stylish Hotel Chocolat touches. They’re made entirely from local materials by local craftsmen. And we take full advantage of their setting by using solar power and natural air conditioning, as well as collecting rainwater. You’ll also sample locally sourced produce, with much of it grown on Rabot Estate.
