Shop Where The Easter Bunny Shops...

Guess whats back in store?

Yes you guessed correctly, Easter Bunnies!

So Easter is still not until next month, but like all good things at Nutpatch you have to get in early to avoid disappointment!

This year we have lots of different bunnies to chose from. The Chocolatier has been busy making these beautiful works of art with many new designs fresh from his overseas adventures last year!

So just to tempt you I have included a picture of some of the wonderful chocolate bunnies.

Watch this space for more exciting Easter treats!




Apricots and Almonds!

Hello Blog Followers,

Apologies again for the lack of recent blog posts. Can you believe it is March? Not sure exactly what happened to January and February, but here we are!

Its nearly Easter time, which is scary, given it only seems like yesterday that it was Christmas! People tell me that as you get older, time passes more quickly! They certainly don't lie!

Anyway, I will endeavour to share some of the wonderful things we have for Easter with you over the next few weeks. 

I would also like to introduce to you the new release chocolate, Apricot and Almond…

Released today Apricot and Almond is simply a perfect balance of layered ganache. It is a symbol of summer and the vibrance of the coloured chocolate shell is just a hint of what lies beneath! As the days are getting shorter and cooler, Apricot and Almond gives us something of summer to hold onto- those hot dusty days, the road trips to pick small fruits and the abundance of fresh produce at farmers markets. So why not come along and try it today.

Christmas Interior Changes!

Our shop recently had some interior changes in time for Christmas, in order to enhance all that is on offer at Nutpatch Confectionary.

You would have to agree it looks pretty festive, and full of wonderful gift ideas for even the person who is difficult to buy for!







Motorbike!








Chocolate motorbike with realistic metallic features! Anyone would think it was a real miniature bike, except this bike is completely edible.




Christmas Penguin!

Meet our Christmas penguin Dexter!

You have to admit he looks pretty cute.

He has an orange beak and feet which are made from orange flavoured chocolate!

To avoid disappointment, order now for Christmas!


Shoes!

Chocolate shoes for the person who has everything!

A Lovely Cup of Tea!

When we were younger my mother (a school teacher) used to do a tea pot shaped card for mothers day with her class. It had a tea bag inside and a poem that read...

'I thought as it is mothers day, you'd like a cup of tea
So let's sit back and relax and have this cup on me!'

Now I was about six when she first started doing this and lets just say more than twenty years on I can still remember that poem!

Now I know its a long time since and until mothers day, but today the weather is so awful it had me thinking about cups of tea and lovely warm fires, and if my oven wasn't broken, scones! So I thought I would share that little memory with you all!

Of course there would also be a chocolate reason as to why I have chosen to talk about tea pots. We now have chocolate tea pots. I love tea pots. I am not sure why I find the tea pot such a beautiful creation. It is both practical and decorative. A few years ago I started collecting them and I have actually lost count of how many I have. Big ones, cat shaped ones, tiny little pots, which would be practically useless but aesthetically pleasing! Spotted tea pots, classic white tea pots!

When we were kids the only tea pot we owned was a sliver tea pot, given to my mum and dad as a wedding gift. We used it whenever people would come to visit, and it would always produce the same reaction of 'oh don't get out the silver on our account!'

Anyway, tea pots I love them!
