WHAT WE DO
All our chocolates are handmade in the beautiful little town of Waihī Beach, New Zealand.
We work with the finest Belgium couverture and use:
white chocolate, caramelised white chocolate, milk chocolate, 55% dark chocolate, 73% dark chocolate and Ruby chocolate.
Our delicious vegan dark chocolate is contains only cacao mass, cacao butter, sugar, vanilla and soy or sunflower lecithin).
PS: if you are into dark chocolate you should try out the 73%...strong and tasty
We choose to use high quality Lewis Road cream for extra creaminess in our truffles.
(By the way, those meltingly good little morsels are not always made to be shared)
We love to use locally grown, seasonal produce and also discover wonderful ingredients from other parts of New Zealand.
We think you’ll enjoy the taste as much as we do.
Organic chili flakes from our friends at Kaitaia Fire in The Far North. (Everyone should visit this magical spot at least once in their lifetime).
Amazing hazelnuts, grown in beautiful Blenheim by the team at Uncles Joe’s.
New Zealand made spirits, including Sovrano limoncello from KeriKeri and delicious New Zealand "baileys" from Remarkable Cream.
an unexpected chocolate shop
As a chocolatier, I love channelling my creativity to creating something personalised and special for a customer.
I decide to stay away from the already made moulds and just to work with the basic ones (egg shape, dome, chocolate block...)
I am able to create a lot of different show pieces who are always filled with some truffles.
The Christmas and Easter collection will change every year.
(Until I am out of ideas, but that is not going to happen the next few years!)
See our gallery to view previous work.
Email, phone or -best of all- drop into the shop to talk with us about creating something chocolatey and unique for a special occasion, for your customers or 'just because'.
I love a challenge or a creative request and we do take orders all year long. However, please note we generally need at least two-weeks' notice for special orders.
Christmas, New Year and Easter are the busiest times in the chocolate world.
During that time it could be a little bit tricky for a last minute present.
We will always try to help.
