Can I have a bear? – JD, 5
It’s not often a lovely family business offers to send me handcrafted chocolates, and these are particularly special.
The family behind Bettys has been handcrafting cakes, biscuits, breads and artisan chocolates at their North Yorkshire craft bakery since 1919, and recently unveiled their new Christmas range, which includes these very special children’s chocolate novelties.
Pictured are miniature chocolate teddy bears (£4.95), white chocolate Snowy Owls (£3.75) and a solid chocolate Christmas tree, beautifully decorated with gold detail and extremely tasty caramel filled white chocolate parcels (£15.95). The range also includes chocolate penguins (£5.25), stunning chocolate baubles (£4.50) and a milk chocolate house decorated with hand-piped white chocolate detail (£17.95).
Everything is made from smooth, creamy Swiss chocolate – the smaller items would make wonderful stocking fillers, while the larger items would look fab as part of a table centerpiece. And wouldn’t it be great to support an independent family firm this Christmas?
Check out the whole Christmas range on the Bettys website. It really is lovely – and delicious too.
