I'm not afraid to try new flavour combinations that some people make think a little bizarre. My bravest concoction was a chilli, clove and cinnamon dark Chocolate. I liked it, I don't think many others did though!

Amy first tasted this in the summer and saved it for dark nights and cosy firesides. Rich, fruity and gloriously moist (steeped in rich vintage port) it is the essence of winter in a chocolate.


"Like a warm glass of the real stuff at christmas."

Rachel Jones, Glasgow

Handmade by Jane

Chilli Fire

Chilli Fire

The sprinkling of chilli flakes are a warning that these are absolutely NOT for the faint hearted. Fiery and peppery, they hark back centuries to the clever Aztecs.

Jenny Clark, Birmingham

Crafted by Jane

Cinnamon Square

Wintery Orange & Cinnamon Square

Winter is unimaginable without cinnamon. Philip has blended his cinnamon carefully with a feisty - orange-zest and wrapped it all in a coat of dark chocolate to keep out the cold.


"The cinnamon doesn't overpower the taste of the chocolate. Perfect"

Jessica Sharps, St Davids

Gareth Tomlinson, Digbeth

Crafted by Barry Colenso

Milk Chocolate Jumbo Raisins

Milk Chocolate Jumbo Raisins

Barry has spun his own twist on the classic chocolate raisin by making them bigger and crunchier and altogether lovelier. He did explain how, but we were too busy enjoying them to listen.


"If I was shipwrecked on a desert island I would take these buttons."

Isabel Frost, Kidderminster

100 out of 10! That Good

Delivery was good, had the phone call 2 days ago and they arrived 2 days later. Customer service was excellent. The chocolatiers did a good job with exciting my taste buds as most of these chocolates were my first tasting.

Overall 100 out of 10!! Going to buy another box, for my friend.

Classy and sophisticated

Overall i thought they were superb,  the packaging was simple, classy and sophisticated and you knew these were going to be special, i was very impressed and they arrived in perfect condition (and tasted great).

The smell when you opened the box was intoxicating and i wanted to dive straight in, just heavenly. Now im a dark chocolate girl and would have preferred  more of these in the box, but thats just my taste.

Minor issue but was sorted and I am now in chocolate heaven

My package went AWOL but after calling you, you called the delivery company and got everything sorted within a few hours (thanks Leanne) - and wow it certainly was worth the wait.

Never liked coffee chocolate, but after tasting the dark chocolate coffee bean I was in dreamland - thanks for opening up my eyes and taste buds!


Taste them, enjoy them and
share them - if you can…


Your box arrives, you peel back the tissue paper and the waft of intense chocolate fills your nostrils but what makes Cocoa Boutique so different? Is it the stories, awards and personalities behind the chocolates or is there more?

  • No mass production - quality instead of quantity
  • Super fresh - handpicked within days of delivery
  • Fine ingredients - using high quality cocoa beans
  • Signature creations - from Master Chocolatiers
  • Handmade chocolates - in every single box

“With hundreds of different chocolate types, is it possible for one company to be the best in the world at making all of them?

We didn't think so either.

So our approach is to let world class chocolatiers create their own delicious signature chocolates for you. Creating a truly unique selection, not available anywhere else.

And with every single chocolate also being taste tested and approved by the team and Barry, you can be assured you are receiving some of the finest chocolates in the world.

In fact, I'm so confident in this, that I would like to insist on taking all the risk by offering you a full money back guarantee, if you've ever tasted better.”
