7th July brings one of the happiest days of the year, World Chocolate Day. Chocolate is known for releasing endorphins, so feel no guilt as you indulge on this special day. Make sure you explore Chelsea to see what sweet treats you can find.
Salted Caramels, Artisan du Chocoalt
Sample chocolates of every flavour at Artisan du Chocolat on Lower Sloane Street. This institution is a haven for those with a sweet-tooth where you can spoil yourself with the most luxurious chocolate sweets from ‘milk salted caramel honeycomb’ and ‘pistachio pearls’ to ‘Rosé & Strawberry Truffles’ which must all obviously be consumed in mass.
Belgian Chocolate Brownies, Bread Ahead
As you wonder the artisan street, grab a tea-time treat from Bread Ahead. Their chocolate brownies are so indulgent and moreish, you sure to be back the next day… and the next!
Sloane’s Dark Chocolate Fondant with Cherry Sorbet, Hans’ Bar & Grill
The latest restaurant on Pavilion Road is Hans’ Bar & Grill and it’s namesake is Sir Hans Sloane, the man credited with bringing the Cadbury’s drinking chocolate recipe we know and love today to the UK. Enjoy a feast of fine cuisine, but make sure you save room for when the desert menu appears which will have you swooning as you catch sight of the chocolate puddings on offer. The salted caramel cheesecake pot with vanilla ice cream will have your tastebuds dancing with delight and the dark chocolate fondant with cherry sorbet is the most exquisite end to a fantastic meal.
Make Your Own Magnum, Magnum Pleasure Store
Do not miss the Magnum Pleasure Store on Duke of York Square this summer; the ultimate destination for those who prefer their life on the sweet side. Create your own Magnum masterpiece, choose your chocolate flavoured shell and watch the masterpiece materialise in front of your very eyes. Flavours include coconut, fudge, honeycomb, pistachio, popping chocolate balls, crushed raspberry – the list could go on!
