Choco­latier cre­ates adult Easter treats

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

An Ash­ford-based cho­co­late com­pany has made a se­lec­tion of ‘adult’ Easter eggs for a na­tional re­tailer.

Choco­latier Ar­ti­san du Cho­co­lat has supplied the eggs to Marks and Spencer for the Easter week­end.

The fac­tory has been based in Long Bar­row on Ash­ford’s Or­bital Re­tail Park for eight years, and has cre­ated four Easter eggs for M&S.

The range fea­tures the ‘which came first’ milk and dark cho­co­late chicken and egg, with a golden chicken en­cased in an Ecuado­rian milk and Do­mini­can Repub­lic dark cho­co­late shell.

Wine from Ten­ter­den’s Chapel Down vine­yard is used to cre­ate the truf­fles in­side the elon­gated teardrop egg, made with Ecuado­rian cho­co­late. The range also fea­tures the use of dark cho­co­late ganache and salted caramel and ganache mini eggs.

Anne Weyns at Ar­ti­san du Cho­co­lat, said: “We’re start­ing to de­velop for Easter next year now.

“We have spe­cialised in cre­at­ing sweet treats for over 15 years and are so pleased to be work­ing with M&S again this Easter.”

Many of the cre­ations are fin­ished by hand, and this year’s range in­cludes a gra­di­ent of me­tal­lic colours and an ed­i­ble gold-leaf dec­o­ra­tion.
