In March 1983, Chantal Coady opened the first Rococo chocolates shop in Chelsea, London. Coady has authored a number of books about chocolate and in 2008 was awarded the prize for “Changing the way people think about chocolate” by the Academy of Chocolate Awards. With her passionate and radical approach to chocolate, Coady operates three Rococo chocolate shops across London.
Rococo carries a wide variety of chocolate gifts, hampers and collections to suit almost any occasion. From their exquisite line of luxurious chocolate bars to beautifully hand painted chocolate art, you are sure to find exactly the chocolate gift you need.
Rococo Chocolate Bars
Rococo’s wide range of chocolate bars includes 50 different flavour combinations all made from the finest in natural ingredients collected from all 4 corners of the world. The only problem is that I keep getting drawin into their artistic chocolate creations and have neglected their bars. I’ll have to put that right on my next trip to London! Some of their most popular bars, however, include:

Rococo’s hand-painted chocolate confections make extraordinarily unique and beautiful gifts for almost any occasion. Each artisan creation is crafted from tempered chocolate with a shiny glaze. Their collection of chocolate art includes luscious chocolate hearts, dark chocolate sardines, exquisitely painted cats, a dark chocolate crocodile, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, chocolate lobsters and fish and many more interesting and enchanting designs. Rococo’s unique collection of creative ideas makes gift giving easy.
But forget the books for now, its the pure artistry of the website that I love so much. Some websites you’ll arrive at and leave in seconds – the Rococo site, however, is a time sink. You’ll spend an age just poking around and seeing what’s there and wondering why you’ve not seen those flavour combinations before. Take a look over their website now.
