Handmade Belgian chocolates – what is all the fuss about?
We are not going to give away our trade secrets here, but trying to encapsulate within a few words why we are proud of the “Luxury” in our luxury chocolates, will go a long way to explaining why so many customers are enjoying our Belgian chocolates across our range of Rocky Road flavours.
So what makes our handmade chocolates so special? In a nutshell, we use premium ingredients, that are fresh and locally sourced wherever possible. For example we use Tarquin’s Cornish Gin in our Gin Rocky Road chocolates, Cornish Fudge in our Fudge Rocky Road chocolates, and Cornish Sea Salt used in our Lime & Seasalt Rocky Road is sourced directly from the Atlantic waters around the Cornish coast.
We spend time making sure that we temper our chocolate correctly so that the consistency is perfect in every chocolate bite.
We use premium polycarbonate chocolate moulds to create the shape of all our Rocky Road products. Each of which requires careful preparation including the application of the unique Langley’s marbling, fast becoming one of the identifiable brand components of our luxury chocolate products.
Filling the chocolate moulds is where the creativity and magic really starts to happen. We carefully fill the chocolate moulds with our blend of ingredients including our Rocky Road favourites and other special ingredients for each of the different flavours. Closing the chocolates is the final step in the handmade process. There is a small amount of space left at the top of each mould in each chocolate to enable us to close them. This simply involves spreading a layer of luxury Belgian chocolate on top, scraping it off so that it is neat, and then allowing them to set.
Handmade luxury chocolates are not just about the ingredients but also the timings and attention to detail in every batch. Typically we let them set overnight, carefully de-mould them, and check to make sure each chocolate meets our high quality standards.
