Valentine's Day is a wonderful excuse to treat your loved ones!

We've put together five suggestions for ways to celebrate with the chocolate lover in your life.

1. Make Chocolate Heart Truffles together

Brand new for this Valentine's Day, we are offering Chocolate Lovers an intimate Masterclass experience during which you will make a collection of chocolate heart, ganache-filled truffles to enjoy together at home.

2. Watch Chocolat whilst sharing a box of chocolate truffles

We've launched our latest collection of chocolate truffles featuring some delicious new flavours, inspired by local flavours including a fruity, floral Cherry & Hibiscus, zesty Lemon Verbena & Honey, and a bitter sweet Chocolate Orange Marmalade Caramel. Cosy up on the sofa together, and enjoy discovering new chocolates whilst watching this classic movie for chocolate lovers.

Treat your loved one to an indulgent romantic experience together this Valentine's Day with our take on an Afternoon Tea.

Chocolate lovers are invited to enjoy an array of chocolate cakes and treats in the surrounds of our Chocolate Manufactory. Your experience will start with a chocolate tasting followed by a drink of your choice and a selection of our handmade chocolate cakes and treats.

4. Make your own chocolate fondue at home

Sharing a fondue together is a classic activity on Valentine's Day. Classic choices to dip include brownies, cookies, pretzels, fresh fruit and marshmallows. 

To make your own rich dark chocolate dipping sauce all you need is:

100g of our award winning 70% Quite Dark Hot Chocolate 

70ml Double Cream

Simply heat up 70ml double cream or dairy alternative and stir through the chocolate flakes. That's it!

Available online and at York Cocoa Works on Castlegate.

£6.50 for 150g (this will leave you some left over for a luxury hot chocolate!)


5. Discover A Taste of our Origins

With this tasting set you can embark on a chocolate adventure together from the comfort of your own home! With a tasting set, you will both taste the different stages of chocolate production from the bean to the bar and discover more about cocoa and our different cocoa origins.

However you choose to celebrate Valentine's Day and whoever you celebrate it with, we hope chocolate features in there somewhere!
