  1. 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

  4. Chocolate really does grow on trees

    Chocolate really does grow on trees

    Chocolate really does grow on trees! Although not as lovely the chocolate bars wrapped to perfection that we know and love, it actually comes from cocao seeds that grow in tropical rainforests. Chocolate was originally made to be used as a medicinal drink and was actually savoury in the early days too, something chocolate lovers now would not even recognise! Today you can get chocolate in almost any flavour, colour and shape you can think of! 

    Today, cacao plants are cultivated in rainforest habitats throughout the tropics. Cacao trees thrive in tropical climates, with interestingly, a lot of shade! The average cacao tree produces up to two thousand pods a year. The pods produce a sweet white paste that is used in drinks, encased in the paste are the actual cacoa seeds. The seeds, unlike the paste, are incredibly bitter, and pretty unpalatable. Not at all like the chocolate that comes from them. It makes you wonder how humans stumbled

  5. Chocolate Truffles

    Chocolate Truffles

    There are four basic food groups in this world: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles!

    Chocolate is a staple in any sane person's diet and it is definitely a delicacy that no one can refuse. Since the first-ever bar hit the shops chocolate has come on leaps and bounds. One particular type of chocolate we are very fond of here at Choc on Choc is the chocolate truffle! Chocolate truffles were invented in Chambery, France, their name was coined after the resemblance they share with mushroom truffles and the word ‘truffle’ actually comes from a Latin word meaning ‘Lump’. 

    Chocolate truffles can come in almost any flavour you can dream of! A popular truffle flavouring is alcohol (we won’t say no), with tipples such as brandy and whiskey. Other filling combinations may include ganache mixed with caramel, nuts, and fruit.
