Looking for the best chocolates for catering?

Your search is over, it's official - we've found the best selection of chocolates and truffles the UK has to offer for the catering market!

So, what makes the best chocolate?

Pure flavorings and natural ingredients, rather than artificial flavoring, produce the best-quality chocolates. Chemical preservatives also affect the flavor and quality of the finished product. Top-notch chocolate products use the simplest, purest ingredients so the true flavor shines through.

Whatever the occasion, chocolate makes the perfect partner. So, if you are planning an event, looking for gifts for your guests, own a hotel and are looking for pillow chocolates or a chef who is looking for gorgeous Petit Fours - we've got you covered!

Best Pillow Chocolates

Selection of pillow chocolates by Whitakers Chocolates, from individually wrapped chocolate Neapolitans, to fondant creams and crisps.

The simple gesture of a pillow chocolate has long been a symbol of luxury, a gift from the hotel to punctuate the turndown experience and send guests to slumberland with sweet dreams. Usually this sweet treat is a wrapped mint chocolate, like a mint fondant cream but these days square Neapolitans with the hotels logo and message are the preferred choice. Whitakers Chocolates offer an extensive range when it comes to turndown chocolates. So, whether you are looking to stick with tradition and opt for a peppermint foiled chocolate or elevate your brand by choosing a personalised chocolate Neapolitan - you'll be spoilt for choice!

Selection of foiled and unfoiled after dinner mint chocolates by Whitakers Chocolates

We're a nation of chocolate lovers so it's not wonder that we all love a little sweet treat after dinner. In fact, there is something quite nostalgic about the after dinner mint chocolate. Perhaps in your family, this was something of a once a year treat, a treat that you enjoyed over Christmas but for lots it's an all year round enjoyment. Finishing your meal with coffee and a dark mint chocolate sounds perfect to us, but, what would you choose? It would have to be dark chocolate wouldn't it? Infused with natural peppermint oil giving it just the right flavour balance. But, would it be a classic mint fondant cream? or a mint crisp? or just throwing this into the mix - a super thin chocolate wafer with mint crispy bits!

The classic dark chocolate mint fondant cream gets our vote!
