A bestseller! Freshly ground chillies, star anise, cinnamon and nutmeg are blended with the highest quality dark chocolate and sprinkled with cocoa nibs to create a uniquely Yorkshire take on the original Aztec chocolate blend. If you want to bring both comfort and adventure into your day, this bar is for you..
Butterflies Chocolates was created from a love of experimenting in the kitchen with chocolate recipes. Helping people share quality chocolate has now become our fulltime profession, and passion.
The action takes place in our purpose-built chocolate kitchen in Pocklington, where we’re always looking to refine and grow our ranges. We now have mini-helpers to advise on flavours too, in the shape of our two young children (they recommend the strawberry and vanilla!).
Chocolate-making is both an art and a science, and we relish the opportunity to put our technical backgrounds to good use: Bertie has a background in food science and Claire is a biochemist. Creating smooth, sleek chocolate is a meticulous business, and we’re proudly pedantic about getting it just right!
You won’t find any shortcuts in Butterflies Chocolates. We don’t add any preservatives to extend the shelf-life of our creations (our customers tell us this isn’t a problem!). And there are no artificial colourings or flavourings either.
Spices are freshly ground for each chocolate batch to ensure they’re at their best, our honeycomb is created using local Yorkshire honey (unlike the stuff you find in shiny gold wrappers!), and our pralines are made in our chocolate kitchen with freshly caramelised nuts.
Great chocolate starts with great ingredients. Our Belgian chocolate supports cocoa farmers and sustainable growing practices (as well as being the best chocolate we’ve ever tasted!). We’re proud to use local produce, such as Oak Smoked Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil smoked by Staal Smokehouse, and Roost Coffee. We cultivate our own herb garden too – you can’t get any more fresh and local than that!
