I'm Charlotte and I would like to warmly welcome you to Brecon Chocolates, officially opened 25th July 2018.
A little bit of background; In 2001 I started ‘Hay Chocolates’, whilst running my award winning catering business, Charlotte Roskill Catering Ltd. Although ‘Hay Chocolates’ was successful, my catering company became the busier of the two businesses so, I made the hard decision to close ‘Hay Chocolates’ saying I will be back! and here I am, 17years on, having got out of catering after 30years, and retrained to be a chocolatier. While we’re not in Hay-on-Wye this time, you will find me making our own bespoke range of chocolates, on site, in The Old Workshop, Brecon. Formally Matthews the Jewellers.
17years ago I designed my own range of book related chocolate moulds, which I have dusted down and started making. BookWorms, historically our best seller. BookMark, BookEnds and big BOOK bar. These products are sporting some very smart new internet friendly packaging and will soon be available to buy on line. Watch this space!
We also have an extensive and ever changing range of truffles and pralines on the counter in the shop. This is where my creative side comes into play, whether hand dipped, hand rolled or pralines, its the flavour inside that counts.
Although our primary aim is to make and sell our own chocolates, we also stock a selection of excellent brands including Charbonel et Walker, Bendicks, Cocoa Pzazz, Heist Bean to Bar from Cardiff, Anton Berg amongst many others.
While we develop the “Shop‘, if there is anything you would like to buy, or questions you would like to ask, please do telephone the shop (the good old fashioned way!), in opening hours and our knowledgeable, helpful staff will give you a guided tour of the current range of truffles on the counter, box to your budget and pop in the post! Or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be very happy to pop our chocolate goodies in the post to you.
Thank you for your patience.
