Ropes & Twines unveils handmade chocolate bon bons
Remy Kuijken, chocolatier at Ropes & Twines in Bold Street, says the bon bons are hand-crafted in an intricate three stage process
Liverpool coffee shop and wine bar Ropes & Twines has unveiled a range of handmade chocolate bon bons, all crafted in-house.
Remy Kuijken, chocolatier at Ropes & Twines in Bold Street, says the bon bons are made in an intricate three stage process. Each bon bon is hand painted and finished with shiny tempered chocolate to create the glossy finish.
Flavours include banana caramel with peanut ganache, port wine reduction with roasted pine nuts and bitter 70% ganache , apricot gel with matcha ganache, lemongrass syrup with Geisha espresso ganache and several others.
They can be purchased in boxes of six for £10 or boxes of 15 for £20, or added to any of Ropes & Twines’ Christmas hampers that include its coffee and speciality wine. The wines are sourced from all over the world and rotated regularly.
Remy said: “We’ve been working incredibly hard to perfect the chocolate bon bons and make sure that each element of them is just right.
“Each bon bon is created in three different steps; first we create the chocolate shell that holds the bon bon together, then the filling is carefully piped in before it’s covered in tempered chocolate to achieve a beautifully glossy finish. To finish, they’re then individually hand painted.
“The flavours are interesting, rich and indulgent and a box of the chocolate bon bons makes a lovely Christmas present or a little treat for those who really love and appreciate all things chocolate.”
Ropes & Twines’ chocolate bon bons can be purchased in store or online.
