The Amazing Chocolate Workshop
The Amazing Chocolate Workshop is a proud purveyor of mind-bogglingly unusual chocolate creations that have to be seen to be believed.
The products are incredibly detailed – ultra-realistic objects hand-made from fine Venezuelan chocolate. They are so realistic that they are often mistaken for the real thing. Their chocolate nuts and bolts actually screw together.
From lipstick to cheese, cameras to spanners, The Amazing Chocolate Workshop has a unique and eclectic range of more than 100 individual oddities.
Not only does the chocolate look amazing, its quality is top-notch too. Cocoa beans are carefully sourced and chosen for their naturally creamy, indulgent flavour. For example, the Trinitario cocoa beans are an extremely sought-after variety, used in less than 10% of worldwide chocolate production due to the expertise needed to grow them.
The Amazing Chocolate Workshop does not use whizzy machinery in the production process but mainly relies on traditional chocolate-making methods.
These amazing creations are made in Nottinghamshire but sold at various pop-up shops around the country, including the Grafton Centre and Grand Arcade in Cambridge, where we came across them. Check ACW’s Facebook page for details of where they are exhibiting. You can also buy them online.
