    How should I store my chocolate?

    I’m sure we’ve all been a bit hesitant in thinking where is the best way to store our chocolate! In the fridge, the cupboard or in the naughty chocolate draw at home? Where on Earth is the best place to keep my chocolate fresh and yummy?! Well here at Choc on Choc we have some top tips for storing your chocolate and we’re going to share them with you guys now!

    What do you mean store them? We just scoff our choccy straight away! 99% of the time we agree but you never know, one day you might need to store them and when that time comes, you’ll know exactly how to store them after reading this!

    Tip 1: Do not put it in the fridge!

    Refrigeration isn’t necessary! Chocolate picks up and absorbs many odours, meaning whatever is in the fridge, the chocolate will pick up – not ideal! Does anyone fancy a cheesy bit of choc? We certainly don’t! Additionally, the moisture in the fridge can encourage ‘sugar bloom’, this is where the sugar in the chocolate ris

  4. Thank You Teachers!

    Thank You Teachers!

    Everyone who remembers his or her own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system.

    Every single day in classrooms across the world, thousands of motivated teachers work long hours educating their students, marking homework, preparing lesson plans, leasing with families and co-workers overcoming any obstacles they may face. The work that teachers put in is essential for not only children, but their future, the parents and the community in general. Nevertheless, the rarity of thanks that teachers receive is concerning. That’s why here at Choc on Choc, we wanted to change that so, we’ve designed a line of thank you gifts for our wonderful teachers.

    Teachers are often role models, friends and sometimes saviours for our children! Teachers inspire students to have a lifetime thirst for knowledge, they share their values and compassion, demonstrate hard work and the importance of commitment. These are priceless les

  5. Inspirational Woman of Wimbledon

    Inspirational Woman of Wimbledon

    As teenage tennis sensation Cori Gauff otherwise known as ‘Coco’ continues to stun the audiences of the world and as a company predominantly operated by female’s we thought that here at Choc on Choc we would focus on some of the important roles and achievements that female tennis players have had throughout the history of Wimbledon.

    So, where’s better to start than the beginning, the opening of the prestigious tournament known as Wimbledon started in 1877, however this only included men’s singles tournaments. It wasn’t until 1884 (a whopping 7 whole years later) that ladies’ singles were included into the tournament and then it took another 29 years for the tournament to include ladies’ doubles and mixed doubles in 1913!

    Once the ladies did get the chance to compete in 1884, the first ever winner of ladies’ singles was Maud Edith Eleanor, at the very young age of 19. Her win came only 3 years into her career of competitive tennis! Impressive!

    For her tremendous wi

    Secondly, it’s the unwritten but most important rule of any Wimbledon party that you have to have Pimm’s. However, it’s extremely important to get the recipe spot on! The perfect Pimm’s is 3 parts lemonade to 1-part Pimm’s, garnished with all sorts of slices of orange, lemon, cucumber, strawberries and sprigs of mint.

  8. The best milk chocolate combinations

    The best milk chocolate combinations

    Chocolate is our number one love and there are a number of reasons why chocolate is so popular. One of those reasons is the fact that chocolate is such a versatile product and can be paired with a range of different textures and flavours. From savoury to sweet, there are so many different ways that chocolate can be enhanced. Milk chocolate is sweeter than other and is therefore more suitable for use with other sweet flavours such as caramel, honey or butterscotch.

     
    It can also work well with the following:
    Coconut
    Lavender
    Orange
    Strawberries
    Raspberries
    Darjeeling tea
    Smoked black tea
    Colombian coffee

    Or how about trying one of these unusual pairings:
    Jalapeno peppers

    Ignore everything you’ve ever been told and do eat straight from the fridge
