I allowed myself a day off on Tuesday. Once the consignment had been collected we could get back to reorganising and getting ready for the onslaught of Christmas. I’d managed to do a small run of our Festive chocolates so that we could put them online, but it wasn’t going to be anywhere near enough to cover us for the next 5 weeks, so it was back to it on Wednesday to get us ready for our last two shows of the year, and for the increase in online orders. I am at least allowed an entire weekend off this week, which is a rarity and has been extremely welcome. On Tuesday evening we went to an Argentinian wine tasting. On Friday we popped a bottle of our favourite Gosset Champagne, and on Saturday we went out to a local restaurant for cocktails and dinner. I’ve finally got a social life again!

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
