CoCo, - Chocolatier, located just off the B876 road at Bowermadden, is a fairly new, and exciting family-run business in Caithness.
Fancy being a chocolatier for the day? CoCo - Chocolatier also offers three-hour chocolate workshops with their very own chocolatier Mandy, which we were delighted to attend.
From the moment we stepped foot in Mandy’s kitchen, we were kitted out with aprons and encouraged to get stuck in and get creative!
Mandy was great - she showed us what to do, shared her clever techniques and tricks, but she really gave us the opportunity to put our own unique stamp on our chocolate designs, flavours and fillings. We were reassured that there was no “wrong way” to do things and had a lot of laughs throughout the afternoon.
We made hollow, shaped and filled chocolates - picking from a selection of fruit flavours and alcoholic flavours, including Crofters Tear's ganache and Jura Whisky ganache.
We used coloured cocoa butter and an airbrush to create brightly designed chocolates. Mandy has a huge selection of fun moulds to pick from, including shoes, handbags, cars and animals.
The workshop would be absolutely perfect for any special occasion, group bookings or even just a fun afternoon out.
