Chocolate Hedgehog

The Choc Spot & Me

I've dreamed of creating a chocolate shop since I can remember, not  to be the next Master Chocolatier and sell solid chocolate or intricate  individual chocolates and truffles but to bake with chocolate.  The tastiest Fudgiest Chocolate Brownies, amazing Chocolate Tiffin (known in our family as Hedgehog - although not ever sure why?!), Banana Cake with chocolate chunks, Fig and Date Chocolate balls and much more.  An array of cakes and biscuits that all contain an element of chocolate  inside or on top or even both! Chocolate might not be everyone's thing but it is definitely mine and I'm so excited to be making my dream a reality.

Super excited to have been awarded a Great Taste Award for my Chocolate & Raspberry Brownies in the 2018 Taste Awards....see my blog to find out more

I created online cookery classes for my girls and their friends in lock down and loved it.  I now run an after school cooking club and bake & create workshops for kids in school holidays. 

Until the world went into lockdown I could be found at St Albans Farmer's Market on the second Sunday of every month and now I am super excited to finally be back.    It's so nice to be back with all the traders and serving customers in the sunshine (when it shines!).

A LONG HELD DREAM

The Beans & the Bake

QUALITY CHOCOLATE AND MORE​

I've been baking with chocolate for years and experimented with many different ones.   I've now  found my favourite - an organic milk chocolate with about 40% cocoa solids, and a 70% dark - they're great for baking, melting and simply nibbling.  For me, it's important that the chocolate tastes great on its own so it can then enhance the bake.

The quality of the cocoa is just as important and my favourite is fairtrade and organic and definitely no sugar added.

I care about all the ingredients I use. I buy British where possible and always use Free Range Eggs.

Love Local

It's great to be part of such a brilliant group of bakers, makers and crafters in Hertfordshire, all passionate about the ingredients that go in and proud of the product that comes out. 

The Village Pop-Up, run by the lovely Robyn, is a hub for many of us and if  you'd like to find out more about local markets and fairs with amazing independent artisans click on the Village Pop Up logo for dates and details.

 

Thank-you for all your purchases and support in the past and for the future.
