Box of Troffle Chocolates

Troffle Chocolate Wedding Favours

We recently tried some chocolates from Troffle and they truly are exquisite. The unique flavours, including Moroccan Mint, Hazelnut, Lime and Basil, Mandarin and Ginger (my favourite) and many more, taste so fresh. I can honestly say that these are some of the nicest chocolates I have ever tasted, and I have tasted a LOT of chocolates!

Natural Ingredients

So why are Troffle chocolates so different? Troffle starts with raw and natural ingredients, and do not use essences or concentrates; basically, no artificial anything. They infuse their ingredients in syrups and fresh cream to create and blend the flavours.

Once the infusion has taken place, Troffle uses fresh cream ganache, caramel or light sugar fondant fillings to complement their flavours, and covers them with their signature 72% dark chocolate. Oh my goodness it’s good.

Cocoa butter patterns pressed onto the chocolate whilst it’s still warm create the stunning decoration. So clever!

Hen Party Hampers from Team Hen

Established in 2015, Team Hen offers an alternative to the garish and sometimes tacky hen party paraphernalia so widely available. They design and make modern hen party gifts, accessories and decorations for brides and their hens, from beautiful handmade sashes, to beach-ready baseball caps and everything in between.

Team Hen believes hen parties needn’t be tacky and garish; they offer brides who don’t necessarily want flashing badges or glittery tiaras something a little more subtle. Team Hen pride themselves on providing quality, handmade items that you just cannot find elsewhere.

Sometimes planning a hen party is a headache; trying to organise lots of busy ladies is a challenge! Just organising the location and any activities can be a challenge, so having to think about decorations and even thank you gifts might be a nightmare. Well not any more, thanks to Team Hen!

Hen Party Hampers

Whilst planning my sister’s hen party earlier this year I came across these amazing Hen Party Hampers from Team Hen. I wanted to get little goody bags for each of the girls but was struggling to think of and find nice items to pop in them.
